I have made the mistake of spreading horse dung, that was riddled with docks, in one of my fields. What would you suggest is the best way to kill them off? I would like to keep it as grass for hay.
Take a picture showing the dock population and quality of the existing sward and I will tell you whether to put it into spring barley or just spray with grassland sprays. You shouldn't be spraying grass of merely because of grassland weeds.
The last thing I want is them spreading. There is nothing to see at the minute, but come the spring it looks more like a dockland field rather than a grassland field.In fact, since you are in Somerset I could just drive there and look myself.

A go with Doxstar or forefront even if you do it twice will be cheap compared to ploughing it. Is it docks from roots or are they from seed? Can't spray them with anything at the minute anyway as it won't work a jot with it being so cold.
Forefront? For a few seedling docks that may come from recently spread dung?
