Has anyone successfully eradicated ragwort and/or rushes and/or buttercups by spraying? I have four hectares, and 50,000 to 100,000 ragwort plants. (Assessed by pulling and counting the plants on a few 10 x 10m marked out squares.) Clearly pulling is not an option for clearing this many plants. I could not use my tractor until June this year, because the land was saturated until then, but most of the land is dry enough at present. (Last year it became too wet again by September.) I would be very interested in anyone’s success rate with Solo, or other MCPA/2.4-D sprays, or other sprays, particularly if applied in the autumn. Were applications on two successive years sufficient? Has anyone tried to eradicate ragwort by frequent topping?
