What is this weed
I have this weed in my food plot and can not kill it. I spray it with gly and nothing. Anybody know what this weed is and how to get rid of it?
Use Crossbow herbicide....little escapes it's fog of death.
We had a patient come into our ER 2 years ago with severe pneumonia. He had been spraying Crossbow the day before and inhaled a bunch.
Cant tell much from that pic but it looks like some form of grass . If it is crossbow wont do anything . Crossbow is a brush killer that is very good on trees ,brush and broadleaf weeds . It is a cousin to 2,4-d and it doesnt kill grasses.
Some custom spray boys actually mix a little crossbow in with some post applied corn herbicides to help with vines . BTW .... corn is a grass
Horsetail is not a grass and Crossbow (or similar brush killer) is one of the herbicides to combat it.
Pat...LOL, you're correct...cocked, locked and ever ready. Just wear long sleeves and gloves and stay upwind, the stuff is wicked.
From the picture, I would say it is in the horsetail family. Telar (chlorsulfuron) and MCPA in the spring are the only things I have ever had success with, and even that is a multi-year effort...
Ask turkey bow hunter, I'm sure he is a weed expert.
Crossbow is a mix of both 2,4-D and Triclopyr... the active ingredient in Garlon 4. Crossbow is a cheaper alternative and easier to get than Garlon 4, no applicator license required. Used on brushy weeds, trees, poision ivy, ect.
Definitely horsetail. I have it in a few of my plots. It likes areas that are on the wetter side. Subsoiling/better drainage is a way to kind of control it.
Here's the link. I remember seeing this on AGphd and I think they mentioned possibly controlling it with Gramoxone.
Try Crossbow herbicide - few escape its lethal fog. Check out this article to understand how it works and If you don't know how to use crossbow herbicide !
Not the type of weed the CO guys were looking to identify. :)
10 year old thread, either the weed is gone or the plot is full of weeds now :)
