Full Description

ThistleX® weed killer effectively controls creeping and spear thistles in established grassland, permanent paddocks and pasture. As thistles are self-fertile (enabling them to spread at a rapid pace) it is crucial that they are killed right down to the root so there is less chance of re-growth. As a foliar acting herbicide, ThistleX® is perfect for use on thistles as the active ingredients are translocated to the roots effectively killing the entire plant and preventing re-growth. For best results treat when the grass and thistles are actively growing and aim to spray when the thistle is at rosette stage- approx 200mm in width. ThistleX® also provides effective control against dandelion, clover, mayweed, vetch and tare.

Please note, this product is not approved for use through a knapsack sprayer.

Keep livestock out for 7 days or until poisoned weeds have decomposed.

DO NOT USE ON Grassland which will be grazed by horses and ponies.

Our Recommendation

  • If you require a product which has a wider range of controlable weeds, try Headland Polo.
  • If you are using a knapsack sprayer then use Grazon Pro.
  • Save time and money and mix in with Blue Dye to ensure no areas are missed or overdosed.
  • Spray on actively growing weeds to ensure maximum control.
  • Apply ThistleX® at 1.0 litre/ha in 200 to 400 litres of water. Use the higher volume of water where the weeds are large at the time of application or where grass is dense.
  • Always wear protective clothing, such as Chemical Resistant Gloves when handling ThistleX®.
