Comparing tank mixes of herbicides for post-emergence control of flaxleaf fleabane (NSW pot experiment 2015) locations
Aims

To determine whether a range of herbicides by themselves or in a tank mix with paraquat are a viable option for the control of established flaxleaf fleabane plants. 

Key messages
  • Tank mixing group H and H/I herbicides with paraquat (Group L) for the control of early flowering fleabane generally only provided moderate efficacy in this experiment.
  • Tordon 75-D (Group I) mixed with paraquat and Velocity (Group H/C) mixed with paraquat, however, provided reasonable control at 89% and 81%, respectively.
