Raxil PRO

Overview

Lay the Groundwork for a Superior Yield



The early days are definitely the most important. From seeding to emergence is when your crop sets its yield potential for the season – and the most critical time to ensure a healthy start. By starting off with untreated seed, you’re already losing yield.

With three different fungicide actives, Raxil® PRO provides everything you need to maximize your cereal crop’s potential. In addition to superior disease protection from the most dangerous seed- and soil-borne diseases like true loose smut and Fusarium graminearum, you also get a stronger, faster emergence to help your field get the head start it needs to reach its maximum yield potential and superior quality.

Raxil PRO Advantage

  • Unmatched seed- and soil-borne disease control, including best-in-class protection from yield robbing diseases like Fusarium graminearum and true loose smut
  • One simple rate, regardless of disease pressure, with no need to add additional products
  • Three fungicidal actives for complete contact and systemic disease protection
  • Micro-dispersion formulation ideal for more thorough, even seed coverage
  • Easy to apply formulation ideal for both on-farm and commercial application

Identifying a Cereal Fungal Scan



There are many pathogens that will turn up on a fungal scan, like storage moulds, but they will have little to no impact on yield. The pathogens shown below, however, are of the greatest impact to your crop and will lead to reduced plant population and yield.

Packaging



Rate
Standard Application Rate 325 mL/100 kg
Container Sizes 10 L 58.5 L 175.5 L
Wheat (bushels) 113 662 1,985
Barley (bushels) 141 827 2,481
Oats (bushels) 200 1,167 3,502

Calculations for amount treated are based on wheat = 60 lbs/bushel, barley = 48 lbs/bushel and oats = 34 lbs/bushel. Always treat based on actual seed weight for best results. These ratings are based on labels, internal trial comparisons and feedback from industry. Always consult the product’s label for registered rates, diseases controlled, and safe handling procedures.

Tips & Tricks

  • Designed for commercial application and on-farming treating with conventional seed-treating equipment
  • Accurate application rates and uniform distribution are fundamental to top performance – mix seed and seed treatment quickly and uniformly
  • Raxil has a freezing point of -16°C and its viscosity does not change until it freezes. If the product does freeze, thaw to 5°C to 10°C and mix thoroughly
  • Refer to the label and instructions supplied with treating systems for complete information on proper application techniques
  • Allow adequate time for the seed treatment to dry on the seed
  • Always wear personal protective equipment when handling seed treatments or treated seed
  • Always calibrate seeding equipment with treated seed, as seed flow can be affected
  • Always ensure proper mixing. Although not needed, conditions sometimes warrant additional water. Water added to Raxil can help increase coverage of the seed. A 3:1 product to water ratio is the maximum you would need. This can help when applying to barley and under cold temperatures to help facilitate proper seed coverage
