Doxstar Pro ® is a foliar acting herbicide for the control of all dock species & chickweed in established grassland. This product is rainfast in 2 hours giving it an edge over any other Dock weed killer. Doxstar pro also has one of the quickest grazing intervals which allows you to retrun livestock to treated areas after 14 days.
Docks are a problem as they have a thick branched root that can regrow if it becomes damaged and can re populate. It is important not to disturb them or try to pull them out as it can easily snap. Seeds can produce in abundance if left on a surface and the seeds can also be imported via manure. Docks can be hard to control once they have become established and in some cases it can take several years to fully eradicate them. While mowing, rolling & grazing with sheep will help keep it at bay, they will not remove the problem. The only way to fully control is with a targeted application of herbicide.
Doxstar pro is one of the best products on the market for controlling tough docks in grassland. You will need to keep horses and livestock out of the treated area until poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become completely unpalatable.
