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.
