Put 24g per h of taxi on mine
It's like a plague here and have to knock it down when seems cost effective to do so.

Ally Max does a good job on it. Don’t cut rates back this late in the year. The Tribenuron helps. Adding some MCPA might help but beware of label restrictions on growth stages. Other SU cocktails do it ok. Florasulam is for smaller plants, according to the various labels.
 
Plenty here that’s had Starane Hi Load at .3lt and Jubilee SX at 20 g. I spoke to my agronomist yesterday, he’s struggling with it in many places, dry weather and a waxy plant isnt conducive to a good kill. Drop,of hormone on a hot day?

I would do a combined hormone + SU approach as you have done I think. It is a problematic weed in places because it walks through PDM and has seeded for years on some soils because of set aside.
 
Will broadway star kick it into touch?

Broadway contains florasulam which should tackle them if the plants are small. Same as starane XL, spitfire, etc.

I seem to remember putting ioxynil (stellox?) in with atlantis for BLWs and groundsel may have been one of the targets.

Nufarm phenoxy guide seems to suggest that CMPP and Dicamba products (i.e FMC Saxon) will control groundsel but not hugely effective.


EDIT:

FMC Saxon label has groundsel on the susceptible list and up to 6 true leaves.
