To go over a new perrenial clover plot and spot treat with regular roundup?

I had the plot put in this Feb, plow, disk then plant, but no herbicide treatment beforhand. I went over it a month ago with grass killer as the clover was starting to sprout, but haven't seen it since. I used "high volume grass killer" supposed to be a generic for poast. At the time there were plenty of other weeds as well. There's been lots of rain, so if the grass killer worked, it should just be a matter of dealing with the other weeds.

Are you trying to get a complete kill?

I am not sure what you are asking. If you are asking about spot-spraying with round up to kill weeds in clover, it will kill your weeds but also your clover. I mix a little round-up in a spot-sprayer and go through my plots spraying thistles or whatever this time of year. It kills everything that is green, but it is very minimal.

Sounds as if you killed the clover with the grass killer.

If it is a grass only killer, then it shouldn't kill clover though, unless it was labeled for it to kill or you mixed it up or applied it way wrong.
