Ask our experts - FAQs

When is best to spray docks & thistles?

Wait for active growth. Target spray at a rosette stage - 15cm across. Once a seed head appears, performance will be les. Take a look at the Spray Timing toll in Support Tools of the Corteva Grassland App to get more information.

When is the best time to control buttercups?

Best control is achieved by application pre flowering to active leaf growth. This is likely to be in April. 

Which Corteva grassland products control ragwort?

Only Forefront T controls ragwort. Other products can have some effect so if ragwort is present at the time of spraying ensure animals are returned when either ragwort has decayed completely or has greened back up and become unpalatable again.
