Delivering outstanding control of Rhynchosporium, net blotch, brown rust and ramularia for high yields and quality grain for use in brewing and distilling.
HGCA fungicide performance trials demonstrate Adexar and Imtrex (straight xemium) are formidable fungicides against the key disease, Rhynchosporium, in barley.
Adexar exhibits AgCelence benefits too – it’s much more than just a fungicide.
Adexar treated crops use resources more efficiently, even when crops come under stress.
Adexar reduces the opening of the stomata in the leaves of the crop so the plant loses less water, whilst the crop continues to photosynthesise and build yield. Adexar treated crops need ~80 tonnes less water than untreated crops to produce 1 tonne of grain.
Crops treated with Adexar not only deliver extroadinary yields, they also exhibit extroadinary strength too.
Adexar increases the thickness of lower stems by 10%, reducing crop lodging. In 74 trials, Adexar has reduced crop lodging in 54% of cases. This is important to protect not only yield and profit, but also safe guard grain straw and grain quality.
On this crop of Cassia winter barley on a farm in 2014, only xemium* treated plots remained upright.
On this crop of Ketos winter barley, lodging was reduced by xemium as a result of increased stem strength. See chart 1 below.

*xemium is the tradename for fluxapyroxad, the SDHI active ingredient in Adexar.
