Prevent the spread of ragwort: code of practice

How landowners and occupiers can assess the threat of ragwort on their land and control it.

Applies to England



Use this code to prevent ragwort spreading where it presents a high risk of poisoning horses and livestock or spreading to fields used for the production of forage.

If you do not follow this code it may be used as evidence in any legal action. But if you can show you have adopted measures in the code of practice, this will help you avoid any fines.
