Fence Lines

Post by JeremyPhillips75 » Tue Jun 09, 2020 8:46 pm

Looking for suggestions on what everyone uses to kill anything and everything. Recently used Eraser but am not very happy with results. Getting new growth way to soon in my opinion.

RoundUp works but why kill the good grass? I use Crossbow to kill the undesirable growth but not the grass.

Eraser is generic Roundup. Roundup has no residual. It kills what it touches and that's it. I use Garlon 4 for the harder to kill areas.

It depends on what is it you are trying to kill.

Problem we have on killing anything and everything is that something is going to take the place of what was growing there and may be less desirable than what you had before. Roundup 365 or something similar that has the post herbicide and a pre-emergent herbicide to keep seed from sprouting works for us in some areas.

I spray Grazon down fence lines.

Grazon mixed with Remedy will do a good job. Just like the Garlon 4, it will get the weeds and the woody stuff.

I used Ranger which is Glyphosate with surfectant and works on what it touches as others have stated. If you have an emerging plant that hasn't emerged to get some, it will be right back up. The problem I have on Houston Black Clay, rock hard and cracked in the summer, is that the places where I use a herbicide are the places that look nice, but the T posts sink due to increased crack size vs non sprayed (live grass-weed area). So I quit the process.

A good mix for fence lines. Pasture guard is a little better than remedy, but either works since you get residual through the grazon.
Also grazon p+d is far superior if you're dealing with cedar or pear.
Garlon is generic remedy.
A quart of grazon p+d and a pint of pasture guard in a 25 gallon spot sprayer will keep fence lines clear of brush, vines and weeds.

Pasture guards active ingredient are triclopyr (remedy or garlon) plus flouroxypyr which gives a broader kill and a few weeks of residual. A very good product IMO.
Fwiw crossbow is simply a light dose of 24d ester with a little bity bit of triclopyr..... great for those with more money than sense..... ;-)

What kind of fence? Barbed wire I would use grazon or grazon and remedy and let the cows keep it short, net wire I would spray round up. May be unnecessary but i wouldn’t want them jacking up the net trying to push for an extra bite. My experience with net wire is limited so that’s kind of an assumption not something I’ve dealt with

:help: I've got a question about Crossbow, I was told you can make stronger Crossbow by mixing 5 parts 24D LV and 3 parts Remedy. Told me it was cheaper & stronger.
Any chemist out there?? :?:

I mix 5 parts 2/4d and 2 parts Remedy. Not sure that makes exactly Crossbow but it works well.

Anyone have any suggestions for something that won’t harm trees but will keep the brush back.

I have a lot of woven wire running at the edge of woods. I would like to keep the brush back without killing mature trees.
