Hey guys, im wanting to spray a pasture with 24d and was wondering if i can spray it while the cows are on it or if i need to give it a certain amount of time before i could graze it after i spray?
 
no cotton around here, just corn and beans. what rate do you guys use with 24d? i think last year i mixed a quart and a half per acre with 10 gallons of water, my neighbor ruined his hay field by mixing it too heavy and killed his grass

Others may say different but I say read and follow the label and you should be good.
 
i think im gonna wait a month before i spray buy this pasture was just cleared 2 years ago and never been sprayed and the weeds are bad

I would think Best to shred it for this year. Spray with grazon next spring. After that go to just 24d
 
yea i believe ill just wait i dont wanna burn my grass, i never used grazon is it better than 24d? i mostly have briers and thistles in it :(
 
Im new to spraying. pasture. I have a 500 gallon tank and it sprays 10 gallons of tank mix to the acre. I want to spray 24D and they are telling me I need to put 1 quart per acre. With the numbers I have presented, does this mean I need to put 50 quarts of 24D in my 500 gallons of water?

500 gal - 50 quarts = amount water needed for qt/acre@10gal/mix/acre
 
There are apps that you can download to your smart phone if you have a smart phone. Or, you can find help on-line that will do the same thing - plug in the numbers and it calculates chemical and water amount needed. Always subtract chemical amount used from water needed as Jogeephus shows above. I like your spray amount of 10 gallons per acre. I'm spraying 20 gpa but thinking of going to 15 gpa.
 
Most recommendations for weed control suggest applying 15 to 20 gallons of water per acre for good weed control. I had a Carolina horsenettle and silver leaf nightshade problem several years ago and the Extension weed specialist at College Station told me if I wasn't putting out at least 20 gallons per acre I might as well leave the spray rig parked.

I spray mine all the time with cows,no problems.But I would think it is to hot as some have already posted.Better to do in early spring or fall when it is cooler.

Did you check the calibration to see if that is how much it is spraying or just going by what someone told you? If it is spraying 10 per acre then that would be right.My rig is set up to spray 17.5 gallons per acre,they say you have less drift with more gallons per acre.

Good point. I spray a lot of "volatile" herbicides near cotton without any problems with drift but I use water concentrations from 20 - 40 gal/acre depending on how much leaf area is being treated. I was taught to try and apply enough solution to get it to the verge of runoff to insure maximum coverage and kill. The kill is more important to me than efficiency. Like you say, its the low volume concentrations which are more apt to bite you when it comes to drift. You can watch some people spray and you can see they are applying an aerosol by the cloud behind their sprayer and this is asking for trouble.

Yea I guess I could go to bigger nozzles and put out more gallons per acre but then I would have to fill the tank more often and I only have 200 gallon tank.So I think I will stay as is and spray early.

Or you could adjust your speed and pressure.
