    Humble suggestion: I think the threads "Herbicide Basics for Food Plots" and "Purchasing Herbicides" should be sticky notes or whatever equivalent that keeps them at the top. Just my $0.02.

    I just bought a couple herbicides that are new to me - Clethodim and 2,4D. I haven't read the labels yet, but will this weekend, when I use them. I thought I'd ask the newbie question - is there a standard shelf life for each chemical and is there a place where they are all listed? I'd like to bookmark it.

    You can find that info on the SDS. That can be found on the website of the manufacturer or on the CDMS.
    Cleth and 2 4 D are emulsifiable concentrates that have a petroleum carrier. They wont separate or settle out in the jug like a flowable product like Surflan or Princep. Generally if you just keep from freezing and keep it in it's original jug they should last for years.

    I have both cleth and 24D in their 3rd year and both are still doing the job. I pull them in the basement over winter.
