Scimitar™ is the new name for Broadshot® in a 5L container. It is highly effective against difficult to control woody and herbaceous weeds, including Ragwort, Brambles, Japanese Knotweed, Docks and Thistles. Its selective action means it will not harm grasses when applied at the recommended rates. Being a selective product, Scimitar™ can be a safer alternative than Roundup® when used to control large woody weeds such as tree saplings, invasive weeds & tree stumps.
Keep livestock out of treated areas for 14 days, or longer if poisonous weeds such as ragwort are present.
It is a universal product and is also strong on troublesome weeds such as Marestail, Ground Elder and Nettles. Use Scimitar to control weeds in grassland, forestry, embankments and non-crop areas. With the Loss of Timbrel and Tordon, Scimitar is the ideal replacement for invasive weed control. Unlike other alternatives, it has a wide field of use, is cost effective & available in a 1 lite or 5 litre pack.
SCIMITAR™ is an alternative brand to third party brands such as, Broadsword®, Broadshot®, or Kaskara™.
