There was a similar question a week or two back and my opinion is that it is very difficult. I've not heard of Kurtail so I hope it works. If your neighbours have got it and they don't control it you do have a problem. They say hoeing will eventually weaken it but other that that I'm not sure. There are one or two allotments near me that have it, so I'll enquire what they do and get back to you.

These plants were around when dinosaurs existed. They are tough. You need to break the thick membrane that surrounds it. I use 2 stones then mash the mares tail between them then add herbicide. You could use a strimmer then herbicide.

If the Kurtail works please will you let us know as other people struggle with this problem too.
