Not really we are on a horse stud so his top priority is the horses. He hold the purse strings and will some times let me know what his plans are.

Aha. Are you qualified to handle and apply chemicals?

The Newman cropsray is an adjuvant - it doesn't kill anything itself but makes other chemicals work better. In this case, perhaps it will be used in a knapsack with something to kill thistles, or other weeds with a kind of waxy, shiny leaf.

Thanks for all your help. I am qualified to handle chemicals, my college will do all the application as he has all the certificates for that. He will use a tractor mounted boom sprayer for thistles, dandelions and buttercups.
