Proven performance when it counts
You need consistent performance. Over 50 replicated field trials and 100 large scale grower evaluations have shown BOXER GOLD provides the most consistent performance in the control of Annual Ryegrass when compared with trifluralin, common pre-emergent tank mixtures and Sakura*, especially during the first 4-8 weeks after sowing when weed control is most important.
BOXER GOLD is registered for:
- Control of Annual Ryegrass, Toadrush, Silver Grass, Stone Crop
- Suppression of Barley Grass
Get ultimate flexibility with 7 day incorporation
BOXER GOLD enables convenience in the management of machinery and farm labour by allowing up to 7 days between application and incorporation.
The benefits of a 7 day incorporation window:
- Minimise the effect of seeding delays
- Maximise available spray hours
- Allows optimum time for sowing and maximum potential crop yield
- Extended incorporation window enables improved translocation of herbicides under sub-optimal growing conditions.
Planning to rotate crops next year? Don't be restricted to wheat
BOXER GOLD has no plantback or failed crop restrictions, meaning next year's crop choice is entirely up to you.
Registered in wheat, barley and durum wheat
BOXER GOLD is the only new generation pre-emergent herbicide to offer the flexibility of weed control in wheat, barley and durum wheat. Field trials and tolerance tests have shown crop safety equivalent to trifluralin.
Trifluralin resistance buster: BOXER GOLD controls tough Annual Ryegrass
You need consistent performance. With an increase in Group D resistance, the performance of trifluralin is becoming more variable. Australian field and laboratory trials have proved BOXER GOLD provides a timely alternative to trifluralin.
- Control of Group D resistant Annual Ryegrass
- No cross resistance between BOXER GOLD and trifluralin
- A rotational tactic to delay the onset of trifluralin resistance
- Alternative Mode of Action chemistry: Group J (formerly Group E) and Group K
Developed for Australian farmers
BOXER GOLD was formulated by Syngenta specifically for Australian conditions. Introduced to the market in 2008, BOXER GOLD was the first pre-emergent herbicide mode of action in 30 years to be registered for the control of Annual Ryegrass in wheat, barley and durum wheat.
The broad compatibility of BOXER GOLD with a range of common knockdown herbicides and insecticides enables increased efficiency during seeding and reduces operating time by allowing single pass pest control.
With its 7 day incorporation window, BOXER GOLD is suited to use with translocated knockdown herbicides such as glyphosate.
BOXER GOLD is compatible with liquid Urea Ammonium Nitrate (UAN) fertilisers provided the spray solution is under constant high agitation. As formulations of other manufacturer's products are beyond the control of Syngenta and water quality varies with location, all mixtures should be tested prior to mixing commercial quantities.
Root, shoot and foliar uptake
BOXER GOLD contains prosulfocarb and S-metolachlor and acts upon multiple physiological sites of action within the plant. BOXER GOLD is unique in that it provides tri-uptake through the shoots, roots and foliage of emerging weeds. Whilst the primary uptake of BOXER GOLD is via the mesocotyl (base of the coleoptile), tri-uptake offers:
- An improved ability to control both surface germinating and deeper germinating weed seeds
- Some uptake through the foliage of susceptible grass and broadleaf weed species
- Suitability for use in a range of tillage systems
The characteristic orange staining associated with trifluralin and pendimethalin, not only makes a mess of your clothes, it can play a big part in the depreciation of your farm equipment.
- BOXER GOLD is an amber coloured emulsifiable concentrate
- Easily pumped and rinsed with minimal fuss
- Cleaner transfer equipment, spray lines and spray tanks
