Bracken is a very invasive plant that has many significant detrimental health effects for animals and humans. The foliage harbours pests such as ticks which transmit Lyme’s disease and spores which have been linked to cancer.

It is very invasive and swamps grazing land or grassland areas with ease and often in very inaccessible areas; hillsides, forests, upland moors. Asulox remains the only product approved for helicopter application in the UK & Northern Ireland.

You may already be aware of the special status accorded to Asulox and the Emergency Approval which limits its sale and usage to strictly to defined months every year. The full list of timings for 2019 are below.

Bracken control should be tackled with a view to a sustained, ongoing programme of treatment, not just a one-off. Asulox works through the sprayed leaves into the rhizomes (roots) of the plant to prevent re-growth in spring. No spraying is allowed before July 1st and must only be attempted on fully expanded, green bracken in its full flush of growth – well before it naturally begins to yellow and die back (senescence).

Results are shown the next year by reduced re-growth.
