GARDEN

Is it safe with pets and children in the garden?
Yes. The core ingredient is a form of calcium which is beneficial to the plant and is totally safe to children, pets and the environment.

 

Can I use it in when rabbits are eating the bark?
No. Grazers works by being absorbed systemically through the leaf of the growing plant and so it is not effective when applied to the bark as it is not absorbed.

Will it harm my pet rabbit in the garden?

No, but we wouldn’t recommend spraying where it is going to be grazing as the treated area will be unpalatable.

When is the best time to apply?
It can be sprayed effectively at any stage while the plant or grass is growing, but will be particularly effective in early spring and summer when young growth is emerging and very susceptible to damage

Should I spray new plants before we plant them?
Yes. We recommend spraying plants in the pot twice before planting and again once planted, to get Grazers built up within the plant in preparation. This is because new plants are generally very lush and succulent and they will be more prone to damage. Established plants in the garden will generally only need one initial spray at the start of the growing season with repeat applications as required.

Can I mix with other products?

No Grazers must be sprayed on its own and three days should be left before and after other applications, for maximum benefit.
Brassicae eg. cabbage, broccoli have a dusty leaf surface which repels liquid, in this case it is acceptable to put literally a drop of washing up detergent in each spray to aid absorption

 

Can I eat salad/veg that has been sprayed?
Grazers is safe to spray at any growth stage and beneficial to the plant, I would recommend a weeks harvest interval after treatment as it may have a subtle effect on the taste. Most damage from rabbits and pigeons etc is caused to the young plant well before harvest, which is also when Grazers is most effective. 

 

Mice & voles are eating my seedling salad plants will Grazers work?
Yes we have recently found Grazers is effective against mouse & vole damage and it is also beneficial to the young plants at this stage.

 

Squirrels are eating young fruit in our orchard can I use Grazers?

Yes we have found Grazers is very effective when sprayed directly on to the young developing fruit. It is very safe to do this and beneficial to the fruit.

 

NB if a plant/crop/grass is under stress due to poor health, nutrition, poor soil conditions (waterlogged, drought) Grazers may not work straight away and growing conditions/plant health may have to improve before re application.


FARM

 

Do I need to spray the whole field?

Generally speaking no - If you catch the problem early or before damage occurs, in fields at risk, and while there is still leaf to treat, then spraying the headland (min 24m boom) or spot treating weaker patches which are at risk eg round woodland, under powerlines (pigeon)


When is the best time to apply to crops?
Grazers can be sprayed at any time of the year, but for optimum results we advise spraying a crop at the young leaf stage in spring or autumn.

Do I need to spray the whole field?

Where rabbits are a problem we recommend a headland spray 1-2 boom widths (at least 28 ft.) along the affected boundary, or boundary potentially at risk. Where pigeons are a problem it is often possible to treat areas close to woodland or powerlines and also weaker areas which are vulnerable. It is ideal to treat areas known to be risk prior to damage or just as it is starting .

 

Can I spray oil seed rape in winter?
Yes so long as you can get on the field. A lot of pigeon damage occurs in late winter in the weaker parts of a crop. Grazers can be effectively sprayed just to these areas giving the crop time to recover to a point where it is less at risk.

 

 

We plant veg modules can these be treated prior to planting?

Yes modules being very tender and under stress immediately after planting are very vulnerable to damage and therefore require a little extra help.

Grazers should be sprayed the day before planting 2x at the stronger rate, just allowing the foliage to dry between applications, then spray again once the plants have recovered post planting

If spraying brassicae in modules, whilst we don't recommend tank mixing, it is possible to add a drop of washing detergant to the knapsack which will aid absorption. 

 

Part of the crop has been eaten down to the ground will Grazers still work?
Grazers needs only a small amount of leaf to attach to. Where damage is spreading into the field it is worth spraying to allow the crop to recover

Can I mix with other products?
No. Grazers must be sprayed on its own and three days should be left before and after other applications, for maximum benefit.

 

How frequently do I need to apply?
In good conditions one treatment can last in the plant for up to 6 weeks, giving the crop a chance to grow undamaged to a stage where it is less vulnerable. Often, and particularly in spring one treatment is sufficient per crop. Grazers is most effective and lasts longest when sprayed on a young actively growing crop. Although it will work at all stages it may not last as long in more mature or slower growing plants 
NB if a plant/crop/grass is under stress due to poor health, nutrition, poor soil conditions (waterlogged, drought) Grazers may not work straight away and growing conditions/plant health may have to improve before re application.

GROWER

New plants brought outside are very susceptible to damage - will Grazers be effective?
Yes, when young tender plants are being brought outside for the first time they are very vulnerable, but often one treatment is enough initially. Where there is a severe problem we recommend a programme of treatment to get Grazers into the plant prior to being put out, eg two double rate applications inside plus another treatment immediately once outside.

When is the best time to apply to crops?
It can be sprayed effectively at any stage while the crop is growing but will be best absorbed in early spring through to autumn whilst actively growing.

We irrigate our shrub beds, will this wash Grazers off?
Grazers is rain fast in 1 hour, though a dry day is ideal to allow it to be absorbed fully. It also contains a wetting agent. In ideal conditions it will last six weeks but obviously with regular irrigation, treated areas will need monitoring for repeat applications

Can I mix with other products?
No Grazers must be sprayed on its own and three days should be left before and after other applications, for maximum benefit

 

Can I use it in winter when rabbits are eating the bark?
No. Grazers works by being absorbed systemically through the leaf of the growing plant

NB if a plant/crop/grass is under stress due to poor health, nutrition, poor soil conditions (waterlogged, drought) Grazers may not work straight away and growing conditions/plant health may have to improve before re application.

AMENITY

Can I spray newly germinated grass?
Yes, Grazers is most effective when sprayed at the earliest stages of growth when the leaf is actively growing and taking up nutrients. Because of its calcium content Grazers is also beneficial to the young plant.

Rabbits are using our bowling green as a toilet area and scratching holes in the turf - will Grazers work?
Yes. We had experience of this on a bowling green where the rabbits didn’t seem to be eating the grass but were still making a mess. Despite this, plus regular mowing, after four weekly applications the rabbits moved on.

Can I spray over our golf greens?
Yes, it has no detrimental effect on the grass and despite regular mowing it is still effective, though more applications may be required.

Can I use it in winter when rabbits are eating the bark?
No. Grazers works by being absorbed systemically through the leaf of the growing plant.

When is the best time to apply?
It can be sprayed effectively at any stage while the crop is growing, but will last longer during the active growing season ie spring to autumn.

Can I mix with other products?
No. Grazers must be sprayed on its own and three days should be left before and after other applications, for maximum benefit.

NB if a plant/crop/grass is under stress due to poor health, nutrition, poor soil conditions (waterlogged, drought) Grazers may not work straight away and growing conditions/plant health may have to improve before re application.
