Raxil PRO Shield

Overview

Make This Season Your Personal Best



Not only does Raxil® PRO Shield provide all the same early-season establishment and disease protection benefits of Raxil PRO, it also gives you the added power of Stress Shield® to control wireworms and provide additional plant health benefits to help protect against unforeseen seasonal stresses.

Raxil PRO Shield Advantage


What's the Stress Shield Difference?



Stress Shield is an insecticide engineered to not only protect your field against wireworms, but it also has improved plant health benefits. Under ideal conditions plants will dedicate available energy to increase growth and seed production. However, when a plant encounters pests, drought, heat or other stressors, they will re-direct energy stores to protect themselves.

Stress Shield curtails the negative effects of plant stressors by supplying a supplemental energy pool for plants to perform internal repairs and initiate other coping systems.

Stress Shield results in:
  • Higher performing root systems
  • Improved vigour
  • Robust growth and increased yield
  • Improved ability to better cope with unforeseen seasonal stresses
  • Wireworm protection: Through ingestion and/or contact, the active ingredient in Stress Shield (imidacloprid) prevents wireworms from feeding on cereal crops, forcing them into a prolonged coma-like state

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
  • Do not freeze Stress Shield
  • 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 of the two products before application. 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
