My buddy wants to spray his food plot and this stuff seems pricey, $40 for a pint that will treat an acre. Supposed to kill grasses but leave the food plants unharmed.
I know there has to be a generic alternative to Whitetail Institute products.

In my clover plot, I use clethodim to kill the grasses and butyrac 200 for broadleaf weeds if mowing doesn't keep the broadleafs at bay. Both WAY cheaper than WI versions.

Tractor Supply has Gordons Pasture Pro for grasses. Would that work and not affect the food plot plantings? Gordons also has Amine 2 4 D for broadleaf. Will that affect crops?

I also use both of these.

2 4 D will kill the clover. You want Butyrac 200...which is 2 4 D-B, OK to use on clover.

delphic93 is dead on with his suggestions for a much less expensive approach. To say WI stuff is way overpriced is a huge understatement.

Delphic is spot on. If your buddy has chicory in his clover the butyrac will kill it though.

I use 1-1.5 pint gly/acre on established plots when clover is not stressed (ample water). Cheap and I always have it around.
