Roundup For Clover Maintenance

Going to try to use diluted roundup this year. I read that Ed Spin says .5 cup of Gly per gallon of water. Question is what percentage of Gly is that original concentration? I have seen concentrated Gly sold between 18 to 50 percent.

Try your luck in the habitat forum. More guys that do it more often are found there. But for me 1 cup per 4 gal backpack sprayer kills most vegetation that is not a long rooted vine with one application. 1/2 cup per 4 gal in my opinion would still kill or hurt clover. This is using a 41% concentrate. The rule is 2 ounce per gal = 2% spray. The 1/2 cup would be 1%
I have heard of guys using roundup before green up to kill weeds and guys use it on Bermuda grass before it greens. But I never tried it. Make sure you check the WHEN it is done before trying it on green. Also try a small area and if the temp is right give it a little better than a week to start seeing results. Best to ask in the habitat forum. Waugh!

What are you trying to do? Kill the weeds but not kill the clover? We just mow. I'd be afraid of killing the clover.

I think the recommended rate is 1 to 2 quarts of gly per acre for total kill.

Mowing will "weed" everything out over the course of the summer.

Than don't use round up. depends what you want killed. 24D or Slay. Round up attacks all vegetation equal. Waugh!

I know many people use the diluted gly for clover maintenance. Never tried it myself. It should only be done on an established plot as it will setback the clover a little. I have used clethodim for controlling grasses. You can also use butyrac 200? I believe to control broadleafs in clover. You should probably post this down in the habitat forum to get more response.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

The guys that use Gly to kill weeds in clover use 1 oz of 41% Gly per gallon of water. As cspot said, it should only be done on established clover that is not stressed (getting plenty of rain). They use the light dose of Gly as opposed to Butyrac 200 because it's typically a much cheaper option, and it kills both grasses and broadleaf weeds.

As others have noted, mowing regularly will allow the clover to choke out the other competition....and keep any weeds from going to seed and getting worse.
