As I prepare to sow rye grains, radishes and clover in my plots...should I first spray with cleth or a light-dose of glyphos prior to my fall planting? The plot originally had a mix of ladino and WTI imperial. I unfortunately had this long to spray because my sprayer just arrived today at TSC. I anticipate that the clover will come back but I know I should help it by ridding it of competition.

My plots went from this....from early Spring to July




to this...taken this past weekend

Looks like heat and moisture stress on the clover to me. Mow high and see if it doesn't bounce back this fall.

I agree. A good rain and it will take off again.

Your clover is just doing what clover does in hot weather, it goes into a semi-dormancy and will start to pull out of it around mid- September if you have adequate moisture. Mow it and then spray with clethodim when the grass starts growing again.

You guys were right. We broadcast rye grain & oats into the plot as well as 200# of 0-20-20 on Sunday. Monday morning it rained pretty good. On Thursday it was bush hogged. I got a call from my uncle and he says that the clover almost looks like it did at its peak. I'll get pics next week.
