Sheep grazing in thistle field

Thistlex®

Herbicide

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
