the chemical "Select" can be sprayed over the top of sunflowers, it only kills "grasses", the normal rate is 8 ounces per acre, the local farmers tell me to use 12 ounces per acre

remember this "start clean and try to stay clean" in your sunflower fields

Thanks for all the info. I am starting with an old hay field so it will be tough but I have to start somewhere. I have done my first disking and am gonna burn it down in a week or so then disk again. What about using Prowl instead of Treflan after this next disking then using again after planting

I incorporate Treflan about 2 inches deep into dirt as I run my scratcher do-all, when I plant I spray Prowl, Spartan and insecticide out of the back of the planter

Treflan is an old reliable chemical that was used by every farmer when the tore the ground up and incorporated the chemical into the soil, with no till done by the majority of farmers the treflan is no good because the sun will break it down within 24-48 hours if not incorporated into soil

I do not know the actual difference in Treflan and Prowl but I do know that since I started using treflan my fields are a lot cleaner and are easier to keep clean

we use every chemical that is allowed on our fields regardless of the cost, we cannot upset the area farmers with weeds/grasses that will migrate into their crops
