Spraying docks in grass

    We silaged a field 3wks ago that was bad with docks. The docks are coming back nicely now so was going to spray them, was thinking of using Minstral Would i be best to spray at 1ltr/ha and spray again after 2nd cut or go with a stronger rate and spray them once

    Anybody NOT t2-ing, t1-ing etc because of frosts

    We pulled a lot of ragwort out of a pasture last year. It’s been sprayed for docks this year and there is still a lot of ragwort in patches . How long is it poisonous for? Cattle will be kept out for 7 days anyway but should they be kept out longer?

    Any BLW herbicide to use on ww after flowering?

    I have a cracking field of ww, (a result in itself) after sunflowers. It is at the stage of just starting to flower (a worry that we have non stop rain after 2012) and now, the volunteer sunflowers are getting to worrying numbers. Is there anything that can be applied this late? Tia Mark

    The cereals that have managed to survive (quite well thankfully) the last 4 months are all pretty clean. By far the most widespread weed, and the only one worth thinking of controlling is cranesbill. I am struggling for advice over here :( What is recommended as a cost effective but effective...

    A quick question for all the grassland boys, what weed control products do you use on a yearly basis? We are trying to make sure we have a comprehensive list available on Farm Maketplace in 2020. This is what we have at the moment:

    Volunteer potatoes

    What are the best chemicals for controlling these? I know very little about it. Starane in cereals, shield in beet? Glyphosate in stubbles appears to be too late as they have formed daughter tubers. thought I was getting on top of them but they are really bad this year in a field that was spuds...

    thistle/dock control in grassland

    Hi, Minstrel/thistlex is a good combination i have used, can Thistlex be mixed with depitox to similar effect seems a cheaper way if it works, Thanks for any replies. Thistles/docks in established grassland is the problem.
