Besides Poast for grass what can be mixed with poast to kill weeds in clover and chickory plots?

Arrest. I think it comes from Whitetail Institute. Expensive! I have a little less than a half gallon might sell if your interested.

Arrest is good, but for a better spraying you need to use a crop or seed oil with it

I control the weeds by mowing. Chicory should be kept at a height not no higher than 10 to 12 inches. This usually requires 2 mowing for me. Which takes care of the weeds in turn.

Chicory is a weed,... and most broadleaf herbicide is gonna kill it. Thats why i don't take any chances. I'l mow it...........

When you mow it about how low is it cut to, right now mine is only about 7 or 8 inch, can i cut it to 4 or 5, thats the highest level on me mower?

Never cut your chicory or clover less than 6 inches due to the heat cause you could stunt or knock them back. Gve your food plot a hair cut in a since. The plants kinda slow down when they get close to maturity,so when you cut them back you generate new growth out of them. Which is the same for weeds whem sparaying, if they are mature cut them and then spray when they begin to regrow.

I'll add to the above in a drought year such as this its better just to nip the top out of it. Thats all i have done this year. And about all i'm controling is the chicory ,.. my clover looks terrible. Can't get no rain.

BUT,.. in average rainfall years i usually mow in late may when it reaches 10 to 12 inches high. Then i'll spray for grasses sometime after,.. then mow again in august if needed. And as stated by arrow flinger,.. no less than 5 or 6 inches.

Terry,
you can actually spray Pursuit at 2-4 ounces per acre, but it costs about $538 per gallon. I'll be spraying it on my clover/chicory plots this weekend. I have a severe problem with poorjoe in some of my plots, so that is why I am spraying. Normally, I would just mow them.

I have found that if I wait till after a good rain to mow, I can cut to 8-10" with out a problem. Then follow up a couple days later with the grass and broadleaf killer for clover, and grass killer in the alfalfa/chickory.

Will do some spot spraying of broadleaf weeds that are really thick in the alfalfa/chickory a couple days after a rain.

I'll never mow on the promise of rain again, only after the rain event.

The key is to spray after the rain when weeds and grasses are actively growing.

With the poast I use an oil as a sticking agent.
