Sounds like a time saver,but thinking might be a bad idea.Was thinking of mixing a grass herbicide,like Clemethodin sp?,with 24db,get weeds and grass at once.Wondering if this is a bad idea,Im thinking so,maybe some type of reaction?

We've got one member who is a big time farmer (thousands acres) and I asked him the same question back in the spring. He also has an Ag degree and I received waaay more info than I was looking for...short answer is no.

That's good!

When I asked him, I specifically asked about the same mixure that FH asked about (Cleth & 24DB) for clover. I know that there are some chemicals that are okay to mix, but he said not to do these...

Some chemicals will say on the label that you can combine them with others but often say the effectiveness of both may be reduced. That always discourages me as the outcome of that would be that I still end up spraying multiple times and waste money. I used both that you guys are talking about recently (Cleth & 24DB) but applied them in two applications about 10 days apart. I was talking to a big time farmer recently though and he did say he was combining Glyphosphate and 24D with good results.

I have combined a light mix of glysophate with a heavy mix of various grass-killers with very good results.

many chemicals are mixed together, just be careful on what you are wanting to do.

for example: killing weeds and grasses

never mix roundup/gly-4 with a contact killer such as MSMA or Gramaxone, the contact chemical will burn the grass/weed back before the other chemical can reach the roots of the grasses/ weeds

when using any chemical that is sorta white in color and about as thick as a milkshake, be sure to spray your spray rig empty and rinse out before storage, this type chemical will settle out of the water mix and stop up your spraying system, experience taught me this one

Never a good practice to mix chemicals unless the label indicates you can. The practical side of your question is if you plan to use the glyphosphate what would be the point of the 24d? The glyphosphate will kill it all. There are chemical treatments for overspray of certain crops that target dicots or monocots with minor effect on the crop but any product with glyphosphate will kill everything it contacts with no soil activity. 24d is a broad spectrum broadleaf (dicot) weed killer. Little or no effect on most grasses (monocots). Application conditions may have a major effect on your applications as well, use a sticker like a squirt of dishwashing detergent for more consistent results. There is no chemical advantage of mixing glyphosphate and 24d. Best advice is read the label.

The reason for mixing glyphosphate and 2-4D was to kill grasses and broadleafs where glyphosphate resistant Pig Weeds were present. It was the Pig Weeds that made the 2-4D necessary.
