NON SELECTIVE HERBICIDE
Numerous Generics Available
Post Emergence herbicide NON-SELECTIVE which means it kills everything that does not have a resistant gene (like roundup ready corn, soybean etc..) or some glyphosate resistant weeds like pig weed.
Mix and Application: (based on 41%)
2 quarts/acre for total kill - You will need to know how much area your sprayer will cover with its capacity of water
For spot spraying 3oz of 41% per gallon will work great.
It is soil inert so there is no need to wait before replanting.
To increase the effectiveness of GLY you can add AMS (Ammonium Sulfate) AMS is a powder and very inexpensive. It is important to add the AMS to the water BEFORE adding the GLY otherwise the AMS will have a reduced effectiveness.
Here are 2 articles on the reasons for using AMS if you would like further reading:

Post Emergence SELECTIVE herbicide Controls broadleaf weedss – Will kill clover and Chicory but will not harm grasses.
Mix and application:
Common Food Plot Usage:
Sometimes used in conjunction with glyphosate for initial burn down of a food plot. Some broad leaf plants have developed a tolerance to glyphosate. Also commonly used in lawns to kill everything except grass.
Has a couple week residual in the soil. So you should wait before replanting.
Mix and application: mix Butyrac at 1-3 qrts per acre. Non-ionic surfactant may be added for increased weed control but may cause temporary injury to crop. Read the label for weed size and recommend rates for each.
Common Food Plot Usage:
Butyrac 200 2,4-DB Broadleaf Weed Killer Herbicide - will kill your annual broadleaf weeds, but will not kill your perennial legumes such as clover, alfalfa, and trefoil. Will kill or control some pretty tough weeds such as smartweed, some thistles and pigweed.
Notes: Butyrac 200 (2-4 DB) can be purchased through Keystone Pest for $44.95/gallon. Keystone also sells 2.5 gallon jugs but they are higher in cost at $50.00 per gallon.
Raptor herbicide is a post-emergent Grass control in Alfalfa, Clover, Chicory and many other related crops in the Deer Food Plot family. It is an improved product over Slay Herbicide and is much cheaper per acre! Apply Raptor post emergence when weeds are actively growing and small. An ADJUVANT & NITROGEN FERTILIZER must be added to the spray solution for optimum weed control. When Rator is applied post emergence, it will also have some soil residual for extended control of susceptible weeds that may emerge shortly after application. Rates for Raptor are 4-6 oz per acre. One gallon will treat between 21-32 acres.
Raptor herbicide kills a wide variety of Broadleaf Weeds, Grasses and Sedges including Smartweed.
Raptor will hurt the wallet @ $580.00 per gallon but small amounts are used so a gallon goes along way. There are alternatives: Clearcast herbicide has the same active ingredients as Raptor but is distibuted for use in aquatic applications. We use the Raptor label for instructions.
Clearcast Aquatic Herbicide (replacement for Raptor)
Same Active ingredient as Raptor Herbicide.
Clearcast Herbicide is running about $300.00 per gallon at Keystone Pest.
Clearcast Herbicide is a selective herbicide that will control floating, emerged and shoreline weed species while allowing desirable plants to colonize. Clearcast is ideal for aquatic areas used for fishing and other recreation activities, while minimal irrigation restrictions allow Clearcast to be applied in a large variety of aquatic environments, including golf course ponds and irrigation canals and ditches.
How It Works
As Clearcast is absorbed through the leaves, stems and roots of vegetation, it binds with an enzyme found only in plants, and not found in humans, mammals, birds, fish or insects. Sensitive plants stop growing within 24 hours after treatment, and then slowly break down as food and energy reserves are exhausted. The rate at which plants age varies with plant size and growth habit. Clearcast has a very favorable environmental profile, and is classified as practically nontoxic to birds, fish, algae and aquatic invertebrates. It’s the only herbicide on the market that has been granted a tolerance exemption by the EPA, which means there are no food residue limits for Clearcast in fish, shellfish, crustaceans or irrigated crops. http://www.cdms.net/ldat/ld7J8000.
