Spraying ButyracContributors to this thread:
Would you guys spray a plot this time of year with Butyrac? Finally mowed it due to being wet and noticed a lot of small grass shoots in the clover. Thank you for your time everyone !
Butyrac won’t kill the grass, but it will kill the weeds. Clethodim kills grass, some grasses anyway, but it’s not too spectacular on mature grasses. This time of year I probably wouldn’t do anything to clover. The weed and grass growing season is about over for the year unless they are winter grasses.

X2. I don't bother spraying now. But I will mow. Just keep the weeds down and hit it really early next spring with Cleth or Imox.
I sprayed with Cleth on 7/30 and my grass is either yellow or brown right now. It is kind of late to do it now but if the rain has it actively growing you may get a good kill. I will hit mine again with IMOX in the spring to get new growth. I try to apply IMOX, Cleth and Butyrac each once a year.
I primarily use butyrac for nutsedge control good luck Lewis
