gw321 - 10/14/2021 05:31 I think the labeled rate was a pint or so back then though. So that plays in too.
First time we used it was on johnson grass on a bottom farm that had just been purchased for the astronomical price of $450 an acre. 2quarts an acre in 40 gal of water at a total cost of $45 an acre. Applied to the regrowth a couple weeks after a very early drought corn silage harvest. Plowed that fall and A heavy dose of Sutan cross disked three times the next spring and other than the borders the stuff was pretty much gone.
