Agritox® is a selective weed killer used in grassland. It will control weeds such as nettles, buttercup, poppy, thistles and a wide range of perennial weeds. It can be used on established grassland and leys over one year old. To gain better results, mix in with a herbicide enhancer called Activate-G
Although the active ingredient MCPA is one of the oldest on the market, it still delivers great results against tough grassland weeds. If you want to increase the weeds which Agritox® will control, mix with Deptiox 10L. This will then control tougher weeds such as ragwort, large docks & soft rush.
Agritox ® is well suited to use in areas where you have a large area of the same weed, i.e. 5 acres of grassland infested with thistles. Keep livestock out of treated areas for 10-14 days, or until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have decomposed.
