Hey guys, Does 50% glyphosate Kill broad leaf weeds and grass at 1 oz per gallon? Or do you think I should mix some 2-4-D with it?

I would ad 2-4D plus some Dicamba, plus .... You should be fine with a bit of 2-4D in the mix, but read the labels. They will tell you what "should"work.

Thanks Larry, It just seems like the roundup works ok on grass and the corn and such but as far as some of these weeds and berry brambles it yellows them off and they come right back. back in the 90's we had a very large patch of elephant ear's or Giant Hog Weed, here if you do not know about them they look a bit like queen anne's lace but if you get near them and they spray ya you will break out into something like a water blister that is larger and more painful than and ivy, they grow up to 8 to 10 feet tall, when we were kids in the fall spring we used to make forts out of the stems. But watch the heck out when they have leaves.:) we had them here when we bought the farm in the 60's but it was not till later that they spread by birds and the county said whoa we need to get rid of them.
The county was trying to spray them with round up but they kept coming back. I found that 2-4-D and a bit of Karo for a sticker would knock them dead on there buts and they never came back after the new seeds were gone.
I will have to go to TSC and get a gallon and mix in big sprayer with the round up and hit all this stuff good by the garage and such and see what happens. I also have a 2 1/2 gallon jug of sticker from the farmer next door he used on his crops not sure what it is but I usually add a few ounces, pint per 25 gallons . he never told me the rate or what its name was he is gone now.

I started using buccaneer for anything I wanna kill. less than half the price and works about 4 to 5 days quicker
