Weeds yellowing, under stress or damaged will be less well controlled. Avoid grassland under stress especially drought, water logging, disease or insect attack.

Weed size for best control
Thistles above are coming into bud. Apply no later than this; at flowering treatment is too late. Apply at seedling stage or up to 50 cm tall. Grass should be less than 25 cm tall
Dock re-growing two weeks after a silage cut. A good time to apply Thrust. Apply up to 25 cm tall.
RAGWORT: Rosette stage - see attached leaflet for pictoral growth stage

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