The BHS strives to educate horse and landowners of the dangers ragwort poses to grazing animals. Among its notable successes was the instrumental and essential role that it played in the instigation of the Control of Ragwort Act (2003).
This innovative tool supports the BHS’s work on controlling the spread of ragwort on to high risk land (horse/livestock pasture and land used for forage production) and is ideal for lifting ragwort from the roots as part of paddock and garden maintenance. It also effectively removes other typical nuisance weeds therefore reducing the need for harmful chemicals. It is strong yet lightweight with a comfortable T Grip handle and has a unique head design and sharpened prongs for easy ground penetration. The fork works in the hardest of soils and is effective at digging out ragwort rosettes and fully mature ragwort plants.
