Asulox, over many years, has established itself as the UK’s market leading product for bracken control. The active substance, asulam, targets bracken infestations and is translocated throughout the plant to provide effective control. Herbicidal symptoms following application of Asulox are virtually absent in the year of spraying but in the following season there is little or no bracken re-growth. Completing a programme of follow up sprays with Asulox can greatly extend the bracken free period for land that has been treated.

Aerial application is permitted on the crops listed above. A buffer zone of 90 m from water bodies must be observed (unless a Local Environmental Risk Assessment for Pesticides (LERAP) permits a narrower buffer zone).
Ground based application is permitted on the crops listed above only when the land is ‘designated for conservation’* or covered by an agri-environment scheme** where specific agreement for bracken control including the use of Asulox has been made with the relevant conservation body.
