Thistlex® is a very effective translocated product for both creeping and spear thistle. It is very safe to grass.


Thistles need controlling because they:
•  compete with grass for space, light, nutrients and water
•  are unpalatable to stock
•  lead to greater incidence of Orf
•  reduce the available grazing
