    I plan on doing a throw and mow into existing clover mid August and I'd like to spray before I plant. Reading conflicting information on this. Anyone know for sure?

    Immediately. Clethodim is a grass selective herbicide. Clover is a legume and turnips are a brassica - neither is affected by clethodim. The plant back interval for grasses is typically a week.

    Followup question on Clethodim. Planning to kill a 1.5 acre patch of pasture along a thicket. Think I am better off using Clethodim or Glyphosate for the spray on that stuff. Its indian grass, bluestem, side oats, a few unknowns. Not a lot of broadleaf weeds that I could see. Planning on glyphosate at this point.

    I’d use the gly, just be sure to add a ammonium sulfate to ensure the gly getting on the plants well.

    Okay, have the surfactant ready to go. Thank you for the advice.
