With unprecedented levels of blackgrass in cereals this year, farmers and agronomists are reviewing how they can improve their blackgrass control.Avadex Excel is well known to provide an excellent corner stone to weed control strategies , but the challenge is finding an efficient and accurate way to apply the product.

How to apply Avadex this AutumnEffective control relies on complete and even coverage and one of the most accurate and convenient ways to apply Avadex is in contractor-applied OMEX suspension fertilisers.



Avadex application with Omex Suspension fertiliser is fully recommended by Gowan.

Avadex is tank-mixed in the sprayer during loading of the fertiliser.



Advantages of applying Avadex Excel 15G
in OMEX suspension fertilisers

  • 36 metre, accurate, low ground pressure fertiliser application
  • Unbeatable accuracy of Avadex Excel application – even to the field margin
  • Excellent efficacy of the Avadex Excel:
    • Granules are distributed evenly across the soil surface
    • Granules are held on clods – no “roll down” into crevices
    • Granules activated by moisture in the suspension fertiliser
