I bought this Grass and weed killer per the farm and home store to kill off my small food plot. My plan is to kill it off in late July and re-plant 3-4 weeks later. They told me this would kill the roots and everything. My question is, will my plot grow when I read-plant a few weeks later?

Yes.... with glyphosate it will. Certain herbicides have a timeframe after application that you would not be able to plant certain seed. That is not the case with glyphosate

Agree with Mike. GL.

Don,

I will add this...

I get a much better kill but using 2% gly with a 1-2% 2,4D Amine mixed together. If you are allowing 3 weeks from spray to planting, your seed will be fine.

I've planted on the same day I sprayed (gly). It won't affect germination of your seed at all. Good luck with your plots!

Agree with above post if only using gly, but if adding a broadleaf herbicide like 2,4D, wait 10-14 days making sure a rain occurred sometime in that period.
