I have a few small areas where I can put some plots in, high weeds in some brush in others. Take me thru step by step please. Products and all.

41%Glyphosate is all you need. Should be able to get it at a local farm store. 2.5 gallons will cost between $55 and $70.

Three quarts in 20 gallons of water will kill most stuff on an acre.

More than one spraying is best. Do the initial kill, then in a few weeks, kill the new growth that germinates from latent seeds in the soil.

Thanks, all of the areas are small, like 60' x 60' might be the largest. When is the latest I can spray? I really don't want to start it in hunting season, unless I have 2.

If you want a plot for this year, I would suggest spray now and put down a healthy dose of pellet lime. Wait a few days to a week and throw down some oats and clover to get things started with some fert. Oats will grow fast. Clover not so much but should be there for spring green up. Do your soil tests to see where you are and get it all adjusted in the spring. You might have a weed problem in the spring but spraying/mowing, and choking them out with oats should keep em on the low down. Just my suggestion but i am no expert. You can also try a brassica/turnip blend for the first planting. Just avoid the ones with rye. The turnips are good for your soil. Just kill the last survivors in the spring.

spray and throw in winter rye grain and brassicas.Do your soil tests for next year,you could apply lime this year.Figure out your acrage and apply the equivilant of 300 lbs of 20-20-20 per acre in lieu of a soil test.This will give good results and a good start for next year.(hint)Deer are attracted to fertilizer especially potassium.
