A Key Role in Resistance Management

Herbicide resistance is a serious challenge to successful grass-weed management. Avadex Excel 15G is the cornerstone in a grass weed herbicide programme. It brings a different mode of action, which is essential to protect many of the newer herbicide options and maximize weed control.


Best Practice

Apply at 15 kg/ha in all authorized crops, winter or spring.

Make sure wheat is drilled 4cm deep.

Do not apply in strong winds as this can disrupt the spread pattern.

Do not sow oats or grass within one year of applying Avadex Excel 15G.

Buffer zone: 10m aquatic from the top of the bank of static or flowing water body. 1m from the top of a ditch that is dry at the time of application.


Applicator Guidance

Check, monitor and maintain applicator pipe work and deflector plates. Calibrate regularly, at least at the start of each season. Operate at appropriate speeds as defined in individual manufacturer’s recommendations. DO NOT use spinning disc applicators.

Apply to well prepared consolidated, moist seedbeds.
