AGRICULTURAL CONTRACT SPRAYING
We provide a wide variety of mobile services available throughout the year, including mowing fertilising, spraying, and have the flexibility to meet individual needs regardless of scale.
Our clients range from private houses to equestrian establishments, smallholdings, caravan parks, sports clubs as well as agriculture and industry.
A well maintained pasture should not need spraying each year; however, weeds can begin to grow in even the healthiest of pastures.
This is not a problem and can be dealt with by using herbicide that is suitable for the eradication of the particular problem. This is performed when the weeds are actively growing. It is vital to control the growth of weeds as without management, they will take over your grassland. The main weeds encountered are thistles, docks, buttercups and nettles. All levels of management provide for the creation of a healthy sward including correct nutrient supply and an integrated approach to all issues is strongly advised.
Ragwort is very poisonous to horses. Sprays can kill the weed, but it is vital that the dead plant is removed completely before horses return to the pasture.
We are fully trained, qualified and insured to undertake these services.
Taking a DIY approach through using a hand operated sprayer and chemical purchased in dilute form from garden centres or hardware shops can be expensive, inefficient and dangerous if the herbicide is handled, stored, applied or disposed of incorrectly.
Keeping a healthy grass sward is the best and most cost effective way to suppress your weed burden.
