Depitox is a selective herbicide for the control of many broad-leaved weeds including Ragwort in managed amenity turf and amenity grassland situations, such as golf courses, playing fields, roadside verges and ornamental lawns.
Control of ragwort weed is best achieved when the plant is in the rosette stage.
Where to use:
When to use:
Apply to actively growing grass (normally between April to September) that has been established for a minimum of 12 months.

Bio-Chemical Mode of Action: 2,4-D belongs to the synthetic auxins group of herbicides.
Synthetic auxins work by inducing rapid abnormal cell growth and development in the stems, petioles and leaves of susceptible plants causing cell bursts and ultimately cell and plant death.
Mobility: 2,4-D is a systemic penetrant which means that the active substance can be translocated downwards through the plant within the phloem (sugar conducting tissues) and upwards through the plant within the xylem (water conducting tissues).
Application timing: Systemic auxins are best applied when the weeds are actively growing. They are generally more effective when target plants are younger and in their vegetative phases.
Resistance: The incidences of resistance to synthetic auxins remains relatively low which is assumed to be because the herbicide has multiple sites of action.
However, resistance to synthetic auxins has been observed globally with 36 species being confirmed as resistant as of 2017. Best management practices, such as alternating with products with a different mode of action and using cultural weed control methods, will help to reduce the risk of further resistance.
