Barrier H ragwort herbicide is sold as a ready to use spot spray in a 5 litre container with applicator gun.
Cost effectiveness: Barrier H will destroy ragwort at all stages of growth and any time of year, but it is more cost effective to treat when at small seedling stage. Larger plants, especially flowering plants require much more Barrier H because the whole of the plant has to be covered.
5L of Barrier H is enough to treat up to 1600 tiny seedlings and up to 110 flowering plants or large rosettes and so it is more cost effective to treat when Ragwort first appears.
Winter application is a good time to apply Barrier H because Ragwort is easily visable. Traditional weeds and grasses die back and Ragwort seedlings and re-growth from older plants appear. Ensure the whole plant is well wetted but not to the point of run off. This especially applies to large flowering plants - the WHOLE plant has to be wetted.
Keep animals off the Barrier H treated area for 2 weeks or until the ragwort plant is completely dead and all debris removed. Remember the root is the last part of the plant to die, so be careful not to remove any dead tops too soon.
Always read the label and use herbicides safely.
Summer application: Late June, July and August are normally when Ragwort flowers. For every flowering Ragwort, there are around 10 small seedlings or rosettes close by which need to be treated before they too become large flowering plants. Flowering plants are more difficult to kill and so it is essential that Barrier H is applied to the whole of the Ragwort but not to the point of run-off.
Winter Ragwort: Autumn, Winter and Spring are when rosettes are most visible. Grasses die back and most other weeds die off leaving the bright green Ragwort easy to see and to treat. However, to achieve the very best results, Barrier H is best applied in dry conditions.
Licence: Barrier H is the world's first herbicide made using only natural plant derivatives from sustainable resources. MAPP: 10136.

The Problem: Very pretty but highly poisonous, this prolific weed is the bane of all horsy people's lives. The problem worsens, as some landowners simple don't take the problem seriously or possibly don't realise the severity of the problem. It is vitally important that everyone does their bit to educate others of the facts and the fatal effects it can have on horses, cattle and sheep, if ignored.
