Syngenta Launches New Herbicide

Syngenta announced that Axial Bold, a grass herbicide for use in wheat and barley, received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency and will be available for the 2019 growing season.

Trials show that with its two active ingredients, pinoxaden and fenoxaprop, Axial Bold delivers improved consistency and broad-spectrum control of top grass weeds including wild oat, yellow foxtail, Italian ryegrass, green foxtail and barnyardgrass.

“Axial Bold was built on the foundation of Axial brands, the industry standard for grass control in cereals,” said Brent Lackey, herbicide product lead, Syngenta. “When used in combination with Talinor® herbicide, Axial Bold will give growers the complete package for broad-spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control in their cereals crop.”

In field testing, when compared to other grass herbicides, Axial Bold outperformed Everest®, Varro® and GoldSky® and also controlled more grasses than other herbicides.

Axial Bold offers growers a wide application window for maximum flexibility and coverage across a large number of acres. In spring wheat and winter wheat, Axial Bold can be applied from emergence to the preboot stage and in barley from emergence up to just before the jointing stage.
