Gothca, I thought I was loosing my mind for a second. Perilla mint (beefsteak, never heard it refered to it as that until now) has evolved a lot over the past 5 years. 2-4D and gly has little affect on it and it now grows everywhere. Full sun, full shade and the typical woodline of course.

That must be local. Gly-4 burns it down on my place. I only have serious problems with it in just one plot--my only decent soil plot.

BSK, we cattle farm so that plays a major role I bet. I am sure the mint gets dispersed greatly from cattle farm to cattle farm and plants that built gly resistance are spread even more.

Have you hit it with gly in late summer? Or do you mainly hit it early in the growing cycle? My best experience with controlling it is clipping it or shading it out with other plants.

We generally spray in late August. Absolutely melts it in less than a week.

Wow, we hit it with 2-4D and a week and 1/2 later with gly...just a little wilted. No the mint that is mostly shaded will react great to chemicals. We even have it growing on fence rows and almost no reaction to chemicals, even the stuff the county sprays from the highway.

I dont have a food plot but the worst weeds in my garden are pigweed (red root and the one with thorns, impossible to pull with hands), crab grass, nutsedge, and johnson grass. I hate the pigweed the worst, probably J grass second worst. Oh, and I had a small bit of perilla come up in my garden this year, but I don't usually see much of it in the community garden as a whole.
