And yes, dont spare the water!!!

Dont dare go over half rate, avoid overlapping, it'll clean the clover out of the sward and check the grass for a while, but the grass will recover perfectly AND with no docks!!! Been doing it for a few years now on very strong docks (as in fit for a chainsaw) and works a treat!! As with any spray, It'll work best if the dock is at the right growth stage. Dont bother asking experts about using this on grassland, they'll all tell you the same thing, Im not an expert, but I'll guarantee you you'll be happy with the end result!!

i suppose it ill be time soon enuf to try and kill a few docks, for i had too many of them last year for my liking, they seem to be thriving in these wet years.
as brucey said, ally is the one, but out of interest, is there naything to top it?
how long roughly are we talking here about stunting the grass?
how much dock cover do you need to be able to spray?
and just how much is ally?

the docks need to be at the right stage to get best kill
usually that means spraying after first cut so you got even growth
get the docks when they about 8-10 inchs across

there isnt a sign of them at the moment tho.
but they are there just waiting.

my silage ground grass is over 4" tall at the mo, so tall ive asked a local lad to let his sheep eat it off.
every other year im ending up with more and more steamier grass, by the time the fert is out its past its good, well last year neway.
