Ragwort never really seems to disappear from our countryside and it seems more prevalent than ever. With all the mild and wet winters we keep getting – be on the look out in your paddocks. Ragwort is only going to get worse.
If you have a serious infestation of this noxious weed you do need to be planning your control measures. You cannot wait until the last minute and call “help” for some spraying – you will have a minimum of 6 weeks withdrawal from grazing to contend with – “where will I put my horses for six weeks!!”
Why do I need 6 weeks withdrawal? When the ragwort has been sprayed and starts to die two things happen. Firstly ‘the sugars’ in the dying plants become more concentrated, so it becomes more palatable. Secondly the herbicide used to kill the ragwort ‘grows it to death’ – it looks like it is growing faster, but very quickly will grow very pale, tall and twisted and very soon after this starts to die back. Having alternative grazing is imperative.
Arrange your ragwort control now – book us in to ensure you have your spraying done in the best growing conditions. You need the spraying done before the ragwort starts to grow too much.
