Axial pro and su

I've sprayed my spring barley with a su (finish SX or answer SX) in the last few days and now i have a rec to spray axial pro for wild oats. I've been told i need to keep the rates up as the su will effect how it works. How long a gap is best for least crop damage, how long before the rate can be dropped and what is cut off growth stage for axial pro. Thanks

I am not an agronomist

but generally preferred mixed or accase first (7 days)
Hormone is 28 day gap- I’d assume similar for SU.

I was told axial after was 3 weeks by my agronomist and that’s what I have left it. Axial will go on this week.

Axial first was a week to the broad lead spray

Again only what I was told no warranty given to these claims :)

It is 21 days with the axial first or 7 days with the SU or something along those lines- don't rely on my memory though as I'm out of date.

In theory you would treat the BLWs first to get them out of the way to hit the oats but I would treat whatever was most pressing- obviously a reduced dose of axial on smaller oats would save a lot of cash.

Nothing on the label about SUs but there used to be for the older Axial. Nothing on the label for Finish SX either.

The cut off for Axial Pro is GS41 which is just before the boots start to swell & the flag leaf sheath extends. You really don't want to get Axial on the ear, theoretically speaking, as you'd already be past the legal cut off.

Really, you want to try and leave it as long a gap as possible but don't get Axial on the ear. Don't even think about dropping the dose rate for Axial either - the weeds are getting bigger too.

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
