PASTURE & PADDOCK SPRAYING

Weeds can be a serious problem in pasture and paddocks causing grass to become overcrowded and unproductive.
Weeds such as docks, thistles, ragwort, fat hen, buttercups, speedwell and nettles can start to grow in the best maintained paddock and pasture.
Ragwort, a bi-annual weed, can be deadly to livestock and horses in particular. Selective herbicides will kill ragwort but it is essential that horses are not returned to pasture until the Ragwort has been eliminated and preferably removed.

Spraying is the best way of controlling ragwort. It is better than pulling, as this can cause root breakage, which then creates more plants later. Because ragwort has a biannual growth cycle, it must be sprayed at least twice and timing is critical for the best results.

QUALIFICATIONS FOR PASTURE SPRAYING; HERBICIDES AND PESTICIDES

SDR Conservation are fully trained and insured in all types of paddock and pasture spraying and hold the City and Guilds Pa1, Pa6 and Pa6W accreditation for application of herbicides and pesticides.
Nowadays it is illegal to spray any professional herbicide or pesticide without these qualifications.
For your peace of mind we are also members of the National Register Of Sprayer Operators NRoSO
