I have some clover plots that I would like to both frost seed with clover and birdsfoot trefoil and spray with IMOX. Will the IMOX kill the newly frost seeded clover and birdsfoot Trefoil?

Imox has a good month of residual effect, so I only spray on my existing clover plots or at least a month after seeds sprouted.

Here's my 5 acre clover plot from last year. It was damn near weed free and perfect.

I sprayed my Ohio plots the last week of April. Imox did well last year on grass and certain weeds but other weeds like dock were not controlled as well as I wanted so I sprayed IMOX, and then 3 days later I sprayed Clethodim and Butyrac (2,4db). It may have been overkill but this is year 2 of a big 5 acre field and I want to keep it under control.

Pat, did you mix your Cleth and 24Db or spray separately?

The picture is a close up from a field which had no legumes in it going into the winter. It was frost seeded in early March with legumes and sprayed with IMOX on April 23. The picture was taken on May 5th. The clover is very small and easy to miss but anywhere I looked there was new growth clover coming up. Clearly, at least for clover IMOX can be used on a frost seeded field. There was also some chicory and BFT in the mix. Too early to tell if they will come up.

Good to hear, goyt. I overseeded some existing clover plots in early March, then sprayed them with Imox a couple weeks ago. It has been unseasonably cold this spring, so everything is about 2-3 weeks behind, here.

Longbow42, I tanked mix the two. I have been doing that for years. I know guys say not to do that, but I've never experienced a problem.

t-roy, I do the same thing every year. With existing plots it is hard to tell if there is new growth from the frost seeding. This is the third year I have used IMOX and I didn't know if I was getting any benefits from frost seeding if IMOX was used. The picture above covers an area that is not much bigger than a playing card. Temperatures are to be warm, maybe in the 80s this week. I will check again in about a week to see how the clover is progressing and if there is any sign of the chicory and BFT.

319.00 a gallon for IMOX!! Holy Sheet!! Glad i dont need much weed killer. I will use Cleth on mine this spring when i get around to spraying the new clover. 32oz is 43.00.

A gallon would last me about 4 years. Seriously, it's a very small amount of IMOX that's used per/acre. Most plotters buy the small quart bottle ($95 on Amazon) and that sprays about 5 acres. You are spraying at a rate of 4-8oz per acre.

When you do the math against clethodim and butyrac it's actually more economical.

Yes......I use an entire jug every spring. It sucks, but I have been happy with the results and when I factor my time I am happy to pay for it.
