About this Product

Confidence is doing it right, from the start
Let your pride show. Apply Axial herbicide for its superior control of the toughest grass weeds in spring wheat and barley. Axial delivers confidence by the bushel.

What makes Axial such a powerful grass weed killer? 

  • Axial® herbicide is designed for maximum grower convenience and comes out of the box ready to work. There’s one rate and no need to recalculate your adjuvant rates for different water volumes.
  • Axial features the market-leading active ingredient, pinoxaden, along with a built-in adjuvant that’s a product of tried and tested science. The adjuvant helps drive Axial into the targeted grass weeds, getting the active ingredient where it needs to be quickly and effectively for maximum performance.
  • Axial has the widest window of grass weed application in the market — from one-leaf right up to six-leaf prior to the fourth tiller. This gives you excellent spray timing flexibility — even when time and weather aren’t always on your side.

  • Superior broad-spectrum grass control at a single use rate
  • Has the widest window of application for grass weeds and crop stage in both wheat and barley
