Dock Sprays Farming Note (includes Selection Guide)

Docks are a major challenge for grassland farmers, particularly organic farmers. Docks are unpalatable and are of little nutritive value, and this reduces both feed intakes and silage quality. With a complete re-seed costing around £155/acre, dock spray and control is very worthwhile.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The hidden costs of docks
  • Seed transmission
  • Organic and conventional control methods
  • Important pointers before you spray
  • 'Dock spray selection guide'

Issued March 2008.

This Farming Note is only available to members
