Why Use Thrust?

  • The top option for the control of Ragwort.
  • Flexible, robust product that can be used on established grassland.
  • The combination of the two actives give very effective control of the key grassland weeds.
  • A highly cost effective treatment which can be used to control perennial and annual broadleaved weeds and as part of a Ragwort eradication programme.

Best Use

Apply in a period of active growth before grass reaches 25cm high in the spring or up to 25cm after cutting. In dense crops, use a higher volume of water. Weeds yellowing, under stress or damaged will be less well controlled. Avoid grassland under stress especially drought, water logging, disease or insect attack. It is often better to treat young Ragwort in September before being frost hardened.

Further Advice on Ragwort Control

Ragwort must be no more advanced than the rosette stage. Ragwort is poisonous but also unpalatable to grazing animals. Once sprayed or mown it loses its bitter taste so it is very important animals are not returned tothe field until the plant has fully decayed orbecome unpalatable.

This may take many weeks. Surviving Ragwort should be dug up. EliminatingRagwort from a field may take several yearsas Ragwort seeds can germinate for many years.
