A powerful new grassland weedkiller has been launched in Ireland for 2021. The product is available as two brands – GrassCare Pro and Santro.

GrassCare Pro and Santro will be distributed by DHM Agrochemicals, which has been introducing effective and good-value weed-control solutions to the Irish market for the past 25 years.

According to Denis Madigan of DHM Agrochemicals:

“The ingredients in these products have been  proven to provide effective control of dock, buttercup, thistle, dandelion and other weeds over many years.

“Now, these weedkiller formulations are available at much better value to farmers.”

The products are supplied by Sharda Cropchem, a leading global provider of agrochemicals.

Weedkiller ingredients

GrassCare Pro and Santro contain three powerful and effective, proven weed-control ingredients.

The product makeup is as follows:

  • Fluroxypyr – 100g/L;
  • Florasulam – 2.5g/L;
  • Clopyralid – 80g/L.

Fluroxypyr is a highly effective herbicide for the control of docks and chickweed. This ingredient is contained in some of the leading brands of grassland herbicides. Following application, fluroxypyr moves to the weed root systems, thus allowing for effective root kill.

Florasulam is effective against a broad range of grassland weeds. The inclusion of this ingredient in GrassCare Pro and Santro ensures a much wider level of weed control in pastures.

Clopyralid adds a powerful additional ingredient, particularly for thistle control in grassland.

This combination of ingredients provides probably the widest spectrum and best value of weed control products available for Irish pastures.

GrassCare Pro and Santro are available in convenient five-litre packs sufficient to cover between 2.5-5ha.

weedkiller Grass Care Pro and Santro


GrassCare Pro and Santro are gentle on grass, so are ideal for use on newly reseeded pastures and best applied when weeds are small and actively growing.

Application rates

Reseeded pastures – 1L/ha
Established pastures – 2L/ha

Weeds controlled

The list of weeds controlled by GrassCare Pro and Santro is impressive and is as follows: dock, thistle, buttercup, daisy, and dandelion, and plantain, among others.

GrassCare Pro and Santro come competitively priced and are available now in your local agri-store.

Weedkiller of choice

UpRoot is the weedkiller of choice for tough weed challenges. It contains two very effective weed-control chemicals:

  • Triclopyr;
  • 2,4-D Ester.

Triclopyr is a highly effective weedkiller against nettle, bramble, scrub, dock and woody weeds.

The chemical moves rapidly to the root zone, thus ensuring good kill of weeds.

2,4-D Ester is a fast-acting form of the popular 2,4-D chemical for control of ragwort, thistle, dandelion and buttercup.

The two ingredients combine to ensure a truly broad-spectrum control of even the most challenging weed situations.

UpRoot application – 4.6L in 300L of water per hectare.

UpRoot comes in convenient five-litre packs and is now available at your local agri-store.
