Results seen in 7 days, tried and tested over five years. Kurtail the customer's proven solution.

A total weedkiller for agricultural, horticultural, forestry situations. Effective on annual and perennial weeds or grasses including: thistles, couch grass and horsetail.

Kurtail is a product proven over five years for the control of the nightmare weed; horsetail. It controls a wide range of plants and requires no weed preparation (rolling or crushing) to work effectively.

Kurtail is a registered trademark of Progreen Weed Control Ltd.

Key points:

  • Spray is quickly degraded on contact with the soil
  • No need to bruise or roll stems
  • Apply to growing weeds that are green and 20cm+
  • Sprayed areas can be planted within 3 days of treatment
  • Treated weeds will turn black and whither within 2-3 weeks
  • Spray with a knapsack or vehicle-mounted equipment
  • Ideally apply between April to September

Application notes and guidance:

  • Horsetail is often called mare's tail but this is more accurately an aquatic weed (hippuris vulgaris). The correct latin name for horsetail is Equisetum arvense or ‘field horsetail’. Please note Kurtail is not approved for aquatic use.
  • Its root system is extremely vigorous and can grow very deep which is why it can regenerate after treatment and cultural controls, such as digging or rotorvating, will only spread and multiply the problem in the short term.
  • It is preferable to allow the horsetail/marestail weed to wither and die naturally before cutting or removing the weed. If this is not possible, then a minimum of 3 weeks should elapse before cutting or removing. Any horsetail/mares tail roots which emerge after treatment will require respraying.
  • Spraying should not take place if rainfall is due within 8 hours (minimum), 24 hours is preferable for best results.
  • Please read the label before use.
  • Please note that more than one application may be required, as new growth can emerge after the initial application.

Hard water issues: 

Hard water can decrease the amount of active ingredient available to tackle horsetail. For greater control and effectiveness in hard water areas use a simple addition to your spraymix, KPlus+.

Kurtail and Mare's Tail
Brilliant stuff, badly infested with Mare's Tail and ordinary weedkiller has no effect even if you slash the foliage as recommended. This stuff really works, I have had to apply more than once to many of the plants but you are warned that this is likely to be the case. It biodegrades so I can safely plant on the affected land. Very pleased.
