Advice on Ragwort control

Always apply in good growing conditions. It is often better to treat young Ragwort in September before being frost hardened. If applied in Spring, Ragwort must be no more advanced than the rosette stage. Ragwort is a poisonous but unpalatable plant to grazing animals. Once sprayed or cut it loses its bitter taste so it is very important animals are not returned to the field until Ragwort has fully decayed and become unpalatable. This may take up to four weeks. Any surviving plants should be dug up. Eliminating Ragwort from a field may take several years as Ragwort seeds can germinate for years. The addition of Nufarm Cropoil to Thrust will improve control.
