Barrier H for the Control of Common RagwortEuropean Patent No: 1069828
Destroy Ragwort in record time with Barrier H. Designed as a spot spray treatment, it can be used ALL YEAR ROUND even in winter. Applied to flowerheads, it will stop the seeding process. The purchaser or end users are responsible for ensuring that Barrier H is used in line with industry approved Codes of Practice. ALL OPERATORS must be trained and certificated to apply Barrier H. By proceeding with your purchase, you are confirming that you hold the the necessary Certificate.
Licence: Barrier H is the world's first herbicide made using only natural plant derivatives from sustainable resources - licensed on the 14th April 2000. MAPP no. 10136
Application: Apply in accordance with the instructions on the Container
Cost effectiveness: Barrier H will destroy ragwort at all stages of growth and any time of year, but it is more cost effective to treat when at small seedling stage. The stems of larger plants and flowering plants become thick and woody and more difficult to penetrate with Barrier H. The whole of the plant has to be covered with Barrier H and so flowering stage is not a good time to apply. Winter application is a good time to apply Barrier H because Ragwort is easily visable. Traditional weeds and grasses die back and Ragwort seedlings and re-growth from older plants appear. Ensure the whole plant is well wetted but not to the point of run off. This especially applies to large flowering plants - the WHOLE plant has to be wetted.
Exclusion From Grazing: Ensure that you apply Barrier H to the whole of the Ragwort weed. After application, we recommend that animals are kept away from treated pasture for 2 weeks, or until the ragwort is completely dead and any debris (with more mature plants) has been removed. This is not because Barrier H is in any way harmful, but, because the dying ragwort becomes palatable and dangerous to animals. Remember the root is the last part of the plant to die, so be careful not to remove any dead tops too soon.
Cutting or Pulling: Time spent digging, cutting or pulling often results in encouraging the spread of Ragwort. Tiny pieces of root left behind can lead to the growth of bigger and stronger plants.
Flowering Ragwort: Barrier H can be applied to flowering Ragwort but re-growth may occur especially in moist conditions. Apply Barrier H directly to the whole of the plant to help prevent the seeding process.
Spot Treatment: Barrier H comes in a 5L container with spray attachment and is used as a spot treatment for Ragwort. It is easy to apply holding the container handle in one hand and the spray gun in the other. One single squirt is sufficient to cover a tiny seedling.
Seeds: Ragwort Seeds can lay dormant in the soil for up to 20 years. Each plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds with a 70% germination rate.
Summer application: Late June, July and August are normally when Ragwort flowers. For every flowering Ragwort, there are around 10 small seedlings or rosettes close by which need to be treated before they too become large flowering plants. Flowering plants are more difficult to kill and so it is essential that Barrier H is applied to the whole of the Ragwort but not to the point of run-off.
Winter Ragwort: Autumn, Winter and Spring are when rosettes are most visible. Grasses die back and most other weeds die off leaving the bright green Ragwort easy to see and to treat. However, to achieve the very best results, Barrier H is best applied in dry conditions.

I would just like to say that your Barrier H has been an excellent product in controlling the ragwort within the ranges. It works extremely quickly and the applicators are easy to use. There is no doubt that we will be using Barrier H in the future on this 7,500 acre MOD estate.
