    No residual with remedy, but I've always used it for brush/woody plant control?

    2 4 D would be best for broadleaf if the Gly is not effective

    2,4-D will have a 3-4 week plantback period.

    2-4D has a residual, but will smoke marestail.

    Thanks. I hate to buy remedy when I have 2, 4 D on hand. Marestail is only 4" to 6' tall now. Between Marestail and Wild Carrot I cant win. I might just spray the 2, 4 D and not plant till September.

    Grasses seem pretty easy to kill, so I target 3-4%. If going after harder to kill stuff, or have some woody stuff (small trees/brush), I typically go with 5%.

    To figure out # oz to add to sprayer:

    (128 oz in a gallon) x (percent you are mixing to) x (# gal your sprayer holds) = (# oz gly to add to sprayer)

    So, for a 3% solution in a 4 gallon sprayer...
    128 x .03 x 4 = 15.36 oz gly

    When spraying, always spray to wet the leaves. Any that drips off is excess/wasted. A fine mist coats best, but also drifts in the wind. Larger droplets spray farther and move less in the breeze, but don't coat as well. Adjust the nozzle to give the finest spray for given wind condition and distance you need to cover.

    I usually run 2-3 oz per gallon and have never had a problem until this year. I think the lack of rain to help with growth is part of the problem. Dry, dry here.

    Them figures are for 41% Gly but watch out there are different strengths. I have seen it as weak as 24%.

    I run 5 to 6 ounces of 41% gly to a gallon of water.

    For normal weeds I use 2 ounces per gallon on my plots . My 16 gallon sprayer does half an acre roughly. I have done one ounce per gallon if I have to do a second round on tough fescue.

    lower percentages work much better in a broadcast spraying application than in a spot spraying situation, especially handheld sprayers
