This product has now been discontinued by the manufacturer. It is still available in a 1L container called 


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.


Our Recommendation

- Use Scimitar for the treatment of Japanese Knotweed, Brambles and other tough weeds

- To help boost effectiveness on waxy & hairy leaves, mix in a herbicide enhancer called Activator-g 1L

- Mix in with Blue Dye to ensure no areas are missed

- If treating a smaller area look at Kaskara 1L
