    This thread is meant to be general information about herbicides commonly used to establish and maintain food plots, NWSG and tree plantings.

    It contains a list that we can add too if anyone comes up with alternatives which may work better/cheaper etc.

    Some herbicides are listed as RUP (restricted use pesticides) which means you must have a pesticide applicators license to purchase (not necessarily to apply them).

    The most common RUP is Atrazine, which is restricted federally nationwide, while others such as Oust are restricted in just a few states. In this case, Oust could be purchased or shipped to another state to by pass the restriction.

    Herbicides may kill systematically or by residual actions and may need to be applied pre-emergence, post emergence or to growing plants.

    In all cases, it is critical to read the labels thoroughly before applying them. All herbicide labels are available on-line and failure to understand what your using could end up in a costly disaster!

    This link will give you a rough idea of cost per gallon although often generics are much cheaper. Just make sure it is the same percentage of active ingredient.

    CDMS - Labels and MSDS is a quick source for all herbicide labels.

    2006 North Dakota Weed Control Guide lists most herbicides and suggested rates per acre.

    Crop Smart carries a full line of very reasonable generics herbicides and Jim will ship so check for the exact product you need and then give Jim a call to compare prices + shipping against local sources.

    Keystone Pest Solutions carries many herbicides that a plotter would need and some in smaller quantities making it more affordable as well as online ordering. Shipping can be pricey however.

    Farm Chemical Suppliers is another good source for herbicides.

    Some herbicides are classified as Restricted Use Pesticides requiring an applicators license to purchase and apply these chemicals. This list changes and varies state to state but here is a list from the EPA:

    Select (26.4% clethodim) must be used with crop oil and can also be used in soybeans, field peas, brassicas, sugar beets, sunflowers and a whole host of "non grass" type plants. Read the label carefully but this highly effective grass herbicide has many uses from your garden to your food plot.

    As noted below it has proven to be perhaps more effective on difficult grasses then other grass herbicides such as Poast and Poast Plus. Currently a gallon runs somewhere between $125 to $140 and does not require a restricted use license to apply.

    Many herbicides come in 2 ½ gallon jugs or in the case of Oust $600 to 700 per container.

    Most of us might only need to treat a small acreage or plot so in many cases 2 or more people can split herbicide.

    This thread could be a place to post an interest in splitting a particular herbicide, ask questions and offer advice.

    If anyone knows of other herbicides that would be useful for others to be aware of please post your ideas and I will add them.

    Check Dbltree's Corner for informational threads on crops and trees where these herbicides might be used

    Hey there... I believe I could get in on that Poast Plus deal.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Ok...but delivery costs extra [​IMG]

    I hope to post links to all the different "crops" and the per acre usage of each herbicide and app. costs. I'll check locally on the prices also.

    We'll figure on splittin some Poast, Dave.

    Skully when it comes to planting trees... size matters but... bigger isn't always better [​IMG]

    We'll cover that in the tree planting post but herbicides are very important to survivability and faster growth [​IMG]

    [ QUOTE ]
    Looking to split a 2.5 gallon container of Journey for NWSG. At 32oz/acre half a container would treat 5 acres. The cost for the whole container would be approximately $325 plus shipping.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    ibohunt65 I'm hoping to get a hold of some Plateau which would be even better then Journey...so we'll plan on splitting some unless someone else chimes in for some also.

    Normally you can find most herbicides at your local ag supply but sometimes time constraints make online ordering a better option.

    If you only have Saturday to get your clover sprayed...you want to spend it spraying...not shopping! [​IMG]

    Here's an excellent online source for many commonly used "foodplot" type herbicides:

    Keystone Pest Solutions

    I don't know about shipping but the listed prices are not only reasonable but in some cases lower then I can buy them locally.

    They also carry crop oil and surfactant which is often required with many herbicides.

    Just another option for those who prefer "click click click" buying [​IMG]

    There's another Glyphosate formulation called Rodeo. It's specifically for use around water and aquatic vegetation.

    This is a neat thread. A lot of information. Thanks for posting.

    I'm not aware of any reason why not...2-4DB is a broadleaf herbicide so shouldn't have any affect on switchgrass or any other grasses....just don't spray it on chicory if you have that in your clover plot and wait til switch has 3-4 leaves before applying.

    Good rule of thumb is, when mixing for a hand sprayer or atv sprayer, put 2 oz per gallon of water. This will give you a really good dose of round up, equal to about a quart per acre.

    Great info here.

    What would you recommend for NWSG seeded last month that is already greening up with grass and a few weeds?
    NRCS recommended (and would only pay for) 2 spring RU sprayings. I paid for 4oz per acre of Plateau out of my own pocket. Unfortunately, the plateau ran out leaving 12 acres with RU only. The plateau acres are still mostly brown while the RU only acres are greening back up.

    Expensive or extensive to get your RUP permit? A basic idea of how expensive, maintanence to keep permit, how extensive and time taking is testing. What's entailed and is it worth it for someone with 300 acres whose a crazed-project fool?!?!? Thanks!

    I studied for it one upon a time but then I managed to locate enough friends to help me out and never did take the test.

    You certainly could easily pass the test with a little study. I believe there is an online study booklet and they have periodic classes thru out the state.

    Last I knew it was about $75 a year and you have to take periodic test or classes to keep your license updated. /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

    75 for the test once you pass, then you have to go sit through 8 hours of refresher courses every year, and as long as you keep that up, you will never have to take the class again.

    Sounds like I am going to do it. I have about 30 gallons of Atrazine for early spring spraying!

    ROUND-UP, quick question, did a 2 minute search, cheapest place I found was that Keystone for $189 for FIVE gallons. Not saying I'll buy online BUT is that about as low as you can go for Glyphosate 41% OR should I look elsewhere to get best deal?

    I have a magazine/catalog in front of me right now with Razor Pro 41% Glysophate Isoproylamine Salt, 2 & 1/2 gallons (26 lbs) for $56.50. Not sure if this is good stuff or seems like good deal?

    That's the key right there...apples to apples when pricing gly.

    41% is 41% other then Roundup PowerMax has "stickers/ Surfactants " in it (that you can add yourelf to generics)

    Nannyslayer can give more detailed info and pricing comparisons /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

    Last Herb question!!! (At least for the next 10 minutes /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif )
    I was going to spray Atrazine at 2-4 (likely 4) quarts to the acre which will require like a Bazillion Gallons of it for how much I'll spray (ok only 30 acres). I was told today that if I bought dried form of Atrazine in 25 lbs bags it was $75-ish BUT the main point was I was told I could put it on at 1 & 1/2 lbs to the acre WHICH would be so easy to just go buy 100 lbs worth and be done (and have some left over).

    Thoughts on powder/dry form and equivelency to liquid????

    Atrazine comes in wettable powders and 2 1/2 gallon jugs of liquid.

    I can still remember the "powder" days... /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/mad.gif

    That stuff is miserable to mix and keep mixed!! You have to have an excellent agitation system and even then it plugs up screens in nozzles and well...it's just a pain!

    Liquid is bad enough because it's thick and still can be difficult to keep agitated.

    Why on earth would you want powder??? It's just as easy to buy it in boxes containing (2) 2 1/2 gallon jugs, easy to store, easy (ok...easier /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif ) to use etc.

    Trust me...if your using an ATV sprayer...forget the powder! /forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
