Asulox® is the UK's number one herbicide for effectively controlling bracken.The active ingredient asulam targets bracken infestations and is translocated throughout the plant to provide effective control. Herbicidal symptoms following application of Asulox® are virtually absent in the year of spraying but in the following season there is little or no bracken re-growth. Completing a programme of follow up sprays with Asulox can greatly extend the bracken free period for land that has been treated.
Asulox®, along with all pesticides within Europe, has been subject to the EU Plant Protection Products Directive 91 / 414 which meant that all pesticide products in Europe had to undergo a rigorous reexamination of all the supporting data. Asulox® failed to gain approval (after appeal) by 20th September 2011. But, because of industry wide support for the product, including organisations such as Butterfly Conservation and Environment Agencies there is an aim to obtain reregistration of the product by 2018. However in the intervening time it is approved for Emergency Authorisation whereby it can be used annually for 120 days. Asulox is also available in a 20L container.
Asulox® has been granted an EU Emergency Authorisation for use in the UK, it can be bought from 14th May till 10th September. It can be applied from 1st July until 31st October. It is a requirement of the approval that any unused product (FULL CONTAINERS) is returned to manufacturer by the 31st October. Please note, if purchases before 1st July we will hold the product for you until nearer to this date.
