Application notes and guidance:

  • Ragwort is best treated in rosette stage – before flowering & when growing vigorously
    • Ragwort control is usually carried out in spring or autumn
    • Spray before ragwort flower spikes start to grow
    • Always allow a minimum of 14 days before returning grazing animals
    • All ragwort should have died back totally or removed prior to returning livestock
    • This can often take longer than three to four weeks
  • Ideally apply when majority of weeds are small and at a seedling stage
  • When spraying either with a knapsack or tank spray - use a medium spray
  • Pet safe once dry
  • Allow at least 4 days after application before rolling/mowing
  • If recently mown or grazed - allow 2 weeks before applying Thrust weed killer
  • Thrust herbicide will kill clover - do not apply if clover is an important part of the grazing land
  • Only use on grassland established for 12 months

Knapsack Sprayer
As a rough guide 90 ml of Thrust when diluted in 10 L of water should be enough to spray and area of 250 sq. metres. 
Farm, ATV, Tank Sprayer
Thrust weed killer can be applied at 3.5 L/ha in 200 litres of water per hectare


Why it is important to use a herbicide like Thrust where ragwort and grazing animals are present

  • A small number of ragwort plants will kill horses and grazing cattle, if eaten
  • There is no cure ot the alkaloid poision that ragwort contains
  • In one season a single ragwort plant can produce over 10,000 seeds
  • Seeds from a plant can germinate over many years, increasing infestation levels
  • To erradicate, reduce the plants presence it is vital to have a regular control programme for ragwort
  • Livestock will often avoid ragwort, but once it is sprayed livestock are more likey to graze on the plant as it becomes more palatable. This can also be the case as the plant dies back
  • Common Ragwort will need to be sprayed over a minimum of two years in order to get complete control
