I called my Aggie agronomist (that's been farming over 60 years) about the morning glory quiz.

He said the only thing besides amine that will kill the things is a hoe.

And hoe, and hoe, and hoe, and hoe. If you keep at it, you can hoe them out. Two applications of 2,4D will normally do the trick. It's now a suspected carcinogen. I had a terrible infestation, long ago, well cultivated sweet corn, with two hand sprays of 2,4D, two weeks apart, finally did the trick. Man, did that stuff ever make a mess of my tomatoes.

BTW, I appreciate you checking, thanks!

And sometimes it seems that the hoe isn't enough....
Maybe a 240 hoe would work.

Been reading your rambleing about weed spray. I learned something in the last few days on the subject. I always have a company come out to spray my little three acre sticker patch I grow corn on. I always did this because I was under the impression you needed a license to buy and apply these chemicals. That is until this year. You see,they used to only charge $10.00 per acre plus the chemicals to spray my corn. Now they have a $100.00 minimum for just driving the rig through your field. I gave them a call about this when I got the bill to complain. They knocked $50.00 off the bill since they didn't give me any warning about the price change. Anywho,we got to talking about me doing my own spraying,and I said it would hardly be worth it to get a license to spray the little bit I had,but then again paying $100.00 for the three acres was out of the question too. That's when he informed me that I only needed to get certified for resticted use hericides,and that they could sell me all the non-restricted use herbicides I wanted. Jeesh, I wish they would have told me this a few years ago. Looks like I need to find a sprayer now.

and list of side effects

I live beside an orchard and THEY don't tell ME even when they are fully geared so I'm not too worried about telling anyone. They've probably already inhales much worse.

Yep that's right you only need a private applicator licence for your own work purchases of herbicides. Just don't let them catch you doing work for hire or letting someone who is unlicenced have any of your medicine.

yeah that's what I get it in too because it's just too doggone handy that way.

If you know what the active ingredient is somebody like Helena Chemical will sell you a generic brand for a whole lots cheaper sometimes. I love cheaper.

I wished I had known about the cheaper. I bought a 2 1/2 gal jug of Roundup for $130. Then a friend says he buys a generic brand of the same thing for $60. He says it works good too! He said the farm supply can't keep it in stock. I bought my Roundup from Helena.

Our co-op and Tractor Supply is about $125 for the Round up, but Helena is $99.50 for the same thing.

burr our tsc and BOmgaars are 135.00 for roundup and here generic is PRONTO I gave 75.oo for 2and half gallon. seems towork good on every thing except tobbaco weed but amine does it. We need no permit for own use but to custom apply have to go to school .
