Kurtail Evo horsetail killer is the new version of Kurtail Gold (once called Kibosh). Exclusive to Progreen, Kurtail Evo comes as the replacement to the highly rated, trusted herbicide brand Kurtail which is proven as an effective total weed killer for many grasses and weeds, as well as being highly effective on horsetail also known as marestail.

Kurtail Evo is the evolution of Kurtail Gold and you can still be assured of the effectiveness. The Kurtail family is the UK's No.1 choice of weed killer for controlling and killing horsetail / horse tail (Equisetum arvense)

Based on 2 active ingredients 2.4-D and glyphosate Kurtail Evo how has the benefit of having far wider areas of use, making it a highly versatile total herbicide. .

Kurtail Evo is designed to maximise plant uptake optimising marestail control.

  • Has improved control levels on other weeds including docks, thistles ragwort and grasses
  • Now approved for use in amenity vegetation, hard surfaces (railway ballast), orchards, grassland (destruction), green cover on land not being used for crop production


  • Effective on horsetail (marestail)
    • No need to bruise or damage the plant
    • Apply to growing weeds that are green and 20 cm+
    • Treated weeds will turn black and wither within 2 - 3 weeks
  • Apply between 1st March and  30th September
  • Controls a wide range of annual and perennial weeds
  • Will control grasses too

Application notes and guidance:

  • Horsetail is often called mare's tail but this is more accurately an aquatic weed (hippuris vulgaris). The correct Latin name for horsetail is Equisetum arvense or ‘field horsetail’.NB:  Kurtail Evo is not approved for aquatic use.
  • Its root system is extremely vigorous and can grow very deep which is why it can regenerate after treatment and cultural controls, such as digging or rotorvating, will only spread and multiply the problem in the short term.
  • It is preferable to allow the horsetail/marestail weed to wither and die naturally before cutting or removing the weed. If this is not possible, then a minimum of 3 weeks should elapse before cutting or removing. Any horsetail/mares tail roots which emerge after treatment will require respraying.
  • Spraying should not take place if rainfall is due within 8 hours (minimum), 24 hours is preferable for best results.
  • Please read the label before use.
  • Allow five days after spraying Kurtail Evo before applying lime, fertiliser, farmyard manure or other pesticides.
  • Do not use along hedgerows
  • Kurtail Evo will control weeds & grasses. Protect plants you do not want to damage.
  • Please note that more than one application may be required, as new growth can emerge after the initial application.
