20-10-10 is a quality NPK fertiliser which has been the standard treatment for paddocks and pasture for many years. This product is ideal for general maintenance or to feed grass for intensive hay production and grazing. The application rate will depend on how many times you intend to apply the product and also what the grass is going to be used for. If you want to find out what is in your soil and the amount of fertiliser you will require, then look at our Paddock Soil Analysis.
For a general feed we recommend 2 bags per acre (50kgs). If the area is going to be used to grow hay, or intensively grazed, then look to apply 3 bags per acre (75kgs). 20-10-10 can be kept in storage until you require it providing it is stored in a dry and well ventilated area. Apply either by hand or through one of our spreader applicators.
If you really want to make your paddocks look good, consider over-seeding with Paddock Grass Seed. This will help to fill out any bare or thin patches.
This horse and pony paddock grass seed mixture is suitable for new and existing paddocks. It contains all the seeds needed to maintain a healthy paddock and horse. If you are looking to over-seed an area, we would recommend to sow at 7kg per acre. If it is a completeley new field, we would recommend to use at 14kg per acre.
The inclusion of creeping red fescue aids the rapid repair of damaged swards and also produces a dense matt of grass which in-turn reduces damage to grass and aids hoof protection from stones. This mix will tolerate several years of wear and tear.
Grazon Pro is a selective weedkiller for the control of perennial broad-leaved weeds such as nettle, docks & thistle in established grassland. The best method for the effective control of weeds such as these is by using a selective herbicide such as Grazon. Grazon Pro is a strong weedkiller that will control the weeds listed on the label but will not harm grass, making it the market leading product for spot spraying unsightly paddock weeds. Grazon Pro is also effective on weeds such as dandelion, creeping buttercup & daisy.
Grazon should be applied from April - October in good growing conditions to a dry leaf. We recommend avoiding spraying if rain is forecast as this may hamper the products effectiveness. To ensure no areas are missed or over dosed, we recommend mixing in Blue Dye which will temporarily colour the area you have sprayed blue. This will in turn save both time and money.
Horses & other livestock will need to be kept out of the treated area until any poisonous weeds such as ragwort have died and become unpalatable. It is important to control weeds such as ragwort as it is toxic to grazing horses and is undesirable in grass grown for silage, hay and haylage. Ragwort is also troublesome as it spreads rapidly; the seeds are easilly picked up by the wind and deposited elsewhere.
Livestock can be returned to the area that has been treated by Grazon Pro weedkiller 7 days after application. Please see the product label for more details and always read before use. If you are unsure please contact our technical team for free, no obligation advice.
