I got a .25 acre pasture field that has been kept bushoged for the last 4 years it has a good stand of grass in field along with the posion oak.What would be a good chemical to get at a farm supply store to spray field with. Live in N.C
Thanks Smith

I use 2-4-D to kill the poison ivy on my hedgerows. It will kill broadleaves but not grass. However, make sure you know what is in your pasture and what you want to keep. When I planted my pasture I put in a mixture of orchard grass and red clover and the local farm store has a pasture mix that has alfalfa in it. The 2-4-D will not kill the grass but it will kill the clover and alfalfa so if you have that in your pasture and want to keep it I wouldn't spray everything. With a .25 acre field you could get a hand sprayer and walk around and just kill the spots you want to and keep you clover if you have any.

If you are going to use a hand sprayer and spot spray use something like Remedy with the 2-4-D.
Make sure the the pH of your spray water is ok, and use a wetting agent, dishwashing soap will work.
