If they can, could they also tell me where to find the dashed stuff in Co. Meath?
It's frustrating me trying to find a supplier.

It's a foliage dessicant. With Gramoxone (Paraquat) off the market since June 2008 this is replacing it. I use it to burn off top growth of grasses etc on areas I'm going to work on but don't want the roots killed. Farmers use it to dessicate the foliage on potatoes before harvesting, it helps them form skins quicker ready for storage.

It sounds very nasty to me - I wouldn't touch it with a barge-pole.
