Have one late sown field of barley to spray for weeds, have been holding of as didnt want to stress it and also was no weeds much . But with the promise of rain was going to spray this evening. Rooting through the chemical store ive un covered a litre of Starane 2 litre of Spitfire and a litre of Pixaro plus some Inka max Question for @ollie989898 ,@Fromebridge @Brisel will it be safe to use the first three together ? The all have the same first active but different partner actives in the case of Spitfire and Pixaro .
Thanks in advance .

You mean a tank mix of Spitfire, Starane and Pixxaro? A lot of overlap in actives so can't imagine any issues but not sure why you'd want to do it. Also you won't get any manufacturer back-up as those sorts of mixes won't be on their official mix lists.

Thank you fromebridge reason i asked is to use up the half used bits of cans that are lying around. A bit of a stroll down memory lane clearing the store lots of stuff that are now gone Simazaine , atrazine, gramoxone, commando , mbc tilt etc . Couple of cases of ipu and a half bottle of Bayleton all have to be disposed of before i get hauled over the coals .
