GREENSBORO, N.C. — 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.

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

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.
