A powerful new grassland weedkiller has been introduced in Ireland for 2021.  The product is available as two brands – GrassCare Pro and Santro.  

For many years, individual weedkillers have controlled only a narrow range of weeds leaving farmers with difficult choices regarding which product would be suitable for their situations. Now with either GrassCare or Santro, the choice is made easier due to the broad range of weeds controlled effectively.

According to Denis Madigan of DHM Agrochemicals, “The ingredients in these products have been  proven to provide effective control of dock, buttercup, thistle, dandelion and other weeds over many years. Now, these weedkiller formulations are available at much better value to farmers”.

Ireland distributor DHM have been introducing effective and good value weed control solutions to the Irish market for the past 25 years.

These products are supplied by Sharda Cropchem, a leading global provider of agrochemicals.

GrassCare Pro and Santro contain three powerful and effective proven weed control ingredients

The product makeup is as follows:

Fluroxypyr          100 grams per litre

Florasulam          2.5 grams per litre

Clopyralid            80 grams per litre

  1. Fluroxypyr is a highly effective herbicide for the control of docks and chickweed. This ingredient is contained in some of the leading brands of grassland herbicides. Following application, fluroxypyr moves to the weed root systems thus allowing for effective root kill.
  2. Florasulam is effective against a broad range of grassland weeds. The inclusion of this ingredient in GrassCare Pro and Santro ensures a much wider level of weed control in pastures
  3. Clopyralid adds a powerful additional ingredient particularly for thistle control in grassland.

This combination of  ingredients provides probably the widest spectrum and best value of weed control products available for Irish pastures.

GrassCare Pro and Santro are available in convenient 5 litre packs sufficient to cover between 2.5 and 5 hectares.

Mid Season Weed Control

This time of year, it is important to give weeds sufficient time to recover after grazing or cutting before spraying. Allow grazed pastures at least two weeks and cut pastures at least three weeks to recover before spraying for weeds.

Reseeded pastures

GrassCare Pro and Santro are gentle on grass and so are ideal for use on newly reseeded pastures. The application rate is 1.0 litres per hectare best applied when weeds are small and actively growing.

Weeds Controlled

The list of weeds controlled by GrassCare Pro and Santro is quite impressive!

This list includes:

Dock, Thistle, Buttercup, Daisy, and Dandelion, Plantain among others.

Application Rates:

Reseeded Pastures         1.0 litres per hectare

Established pastures       2.0 litres per hectare.
