Arylex™ active provides a unique spectrum of selective, post-emergence control of annual broadleaf weeds in cereals, forage brassica and burndown applications, as well as offering some activity on certain perennial weed species. The level of control is influenced by weed size, with smaller stages of weeds more easily controlled. Arylex efficacy is optimized when sprayed with an adjuvant, either included in the formulation or added in the tank mix.
One feature that distinguishes Arylex from other synthetic auxin herbicides is its superior efficacy at low dose rates. Post-emergence use rates as low as 5 to 10 grams of active ingredient per hectare effectively control many common and invasive broadleaf weeds, including susceptible ALS and glyphosate resistant species.
Arylex offers highly effective weed control across variable climatic conditions, even in the cold, wet conditions encountered in late autumn or early spring. Unlike most growth regulator herbicides, the activity of Arylex on target weeds is not significantly influenced by temperature, so control can be achieved under cold (inactive periods of weed growth) and under warm conditions (with active growth). While other products exist to manage hard-to-control weeds under difficult conditions, Arylex is unique in its efficacy across a variety of weeds and variable conditions.
Arylex can be safely applied to a diverse selection of winter and spring cereals, between early leaf development through boot growth stages. This wide spray window offers great flexibility to farmers, because the active offers outstanding performance over a range of conditions, whether cold or hot, wet or dry. The molecule stays in plants until the weather is warmer, and it then begins to break down.
