Forefront T

Product information

Forefront® T delivers the highest levels of control of docks, thistles, nettles, ragwort, buttercups and dandelions. It can only be used on grazing ground or after last cut of silage. Manure restrictions apply.
It is very safe to grass.

Use Forefront T because:

  • Best available control of broad-leaved dock, curled dock, creeping thistle, spear thistle, common nettle, dandelion, creeping buttercup and ragwort
  • Forefront T moves to the roots ensuring high levels of long-term control
  • Use in pastures grazed by cattle or sheep for enhanced grazing productivity
  • Forefront T does not hold back grass growth after application.

Maximise success – do it with PRIDE

The combination of aminopyralid and triclopyr gives the best available control of broadleaved dock, curled dock, creeping thistle, spear thistle, common nettle, dandelion, creeping buttercup and ragwort in one solution.

Use at 2.0 L/ha in a water volume of 200 L/ha. If weed numbers are high, or if the grass sward is dense, increase to 300 L/ha. Reducing water volume to speed up spraying operations can lead to poorer long-term control.

Only use in grassland for grazing by cattle or sheep. Take stock out during spraying then return no sooner than 7 days later. Do not apply to grassland that will be used for silage, hay or haylage. It can be used after the last silage cut – allow 2-3 weeks for sufficient weed regrowth to occur.

Forefront T is not approved for use by hand-held equipment, e.g. knapsack or lance. Choose GrazonPRO for these uses. Target actively growing plants in the rosette stage up to 250mm across or high. If larger than this consider topping and spraying the regrowth 2-3 weeks later.

Avoid treating weeds suffering from waterlogging, drought stress, cold stress, suffering from disease, e.g. Ramularia, or those affected by insect damage, e.g. dock beetle. Forefront T is LERAP Category B, meaning a 5 metre area must be left unsprayed next to a flowing or static water-body, or 1 metre unsprayed near dry ditches.
