If its pasture master you've got, it's not anything like Thistlex

Pasture master we had here last year was a MCPA & 24D mix, a chemical topper basically.

Will kill creeping thistle this year, but they'll be back full strength next year, but so will the clover, where as thistlex nails the clover

Too late in the season now but mcpa will kill spear thistle in their second year sprayed a couple of months ago or so they would be gone now well before they had chance to set seed.
Same as above clover will survive it ...but it gets a hammering mind.

Yes sorry my mistake I’ve just looked back at his text the pasture master was instead of polo which is as you say mcpa and 2-4d will have to look in Chem store in the morning to find what the thistlex equivelent is called

Yep same here, pasture master replaced Headland polo, great for annual and bi-annual thistles 👌
 
When I tried to get Thislex earlier in the season I was told it was because of the hold up in containers after the Suez blockage. There is still shortages of chemicals from China because of hold ups in container ports so this may be the reason it install hard to find.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
