MAPP No. 15408
Thrust selective herbicide is a strong weed killer to control annual and perennial broad-leaved weeds in established agricultural grassland and amenity grassland. It is a soluble concentrate containing 344g/l 2,4-D and 120g/l dicamba as the dimethylamine salt.
Thrust is highly effective on weeds such as thistle, dock, plantain, soft rush and buttercups, and is also particularly effective on the troublesome weed, ragwort. It will not harm the grass which means it can be applied on paddocks and pasture.
Thrust is easily applied through a vehicle mounted or handheld sprayer making it a useful and versatile product. Whilst many other selective herbicides continue to be withdrawn from the market, Thrust is one of the few remaining products that can boast value for money.
