General Information


Thistrol Plus is slow acting and may take several weeks to effect control. The activity of Thistrol Plus depends on its conversion by susceptible weeds from the butyric (MCPB) form to the biologically active acetic (MCPA) form. Treat small seedlings or early rosette stage actively growing weeds which are better able to make this conversion. use the higher rate where weeds are more advanced.

Do not spray on weeds under stress (drought, water logging etc), or if rainfall is expected within 2 hours of application.

Direction for use:


CROP
RATE/HA
NOTES
Pasture
3-4L in 200 litres water
on new pasture use 3L/ha when clover has at least 2 true trifoliate leaves, but weeds are still at seeding stage. On established pasture use 4L/ha if weeds are past seedling stage.
Cereals
3-4L in 150-250 litres water
Apply between the second leaf and first node stage of the crop. use the higher rate if weeds have more than 3 leaves. Do no use on crops undersown with clover or lucerne.
Peas
3-4L in 150-250 litres water
Apply between 5-7 node growth stage of the crop. Some temporary twisting of the crop may occur. do not apply Thistrol Plus in combination with other herbicides. As heavy rain may remove the protective leaf wax on peas, delay treatment until a crystal violet leaf test confirms the crop is safe to treat.
White clover seed crops
3-4L in 150-250 litres water
Apply in spring to actively growing seeding weeds. Do no apply after clover flowering has started.
Grass seed crops e.g. cocksfoot, dogstail, ryegrass, timothy
3-4L in 150-250 litres water
Apply to seedling weeds well before seed head emergence in the crop.
