I find a liter in spring does a good job. I think it's hard to kill in fall after its headed out and the spray can't reach the weak foliage because of the mature fuzzy heads. What about Olympus? Reply With Quote

    Native to North America. Need to learn to live with it.

    I think SK3 gave Olympus a try Reply With Quote

    Crappy to feed to livestock, lumpjaw risk. Reply With Quote

    May 24, 2020 | 17:44 8 Best thing to do is treat the soil with gypsum about 400# an acre and it will disappear Reply With Quote

    May 24, 2020 | 19:00 10 Fall spray fall spray fall spray ......cheapest and best control you will ever get. 1.5 litres in spring will hold ot back for a bit. Reply With Quote

  • May 24, 2020 | 19:32 11 Assure 2 at 40 acres/case plus a litre equivalent of glyphosate is the cure for foxtail. Olympus worked ok last year added on to fore mentioned. Reply With Quote

  • May 24, 2020 | 23:04 13 Yes if you have a fall, you can do lots of
    Things.
    Horse tail . With Rdp. Canola
    Just keep hitting it. With glyphosate. 3 or 4 times.
    Have wheat there this year, I will try prestige.

    Was amazed, on the beach in LA , multi million
    Beach front property, had 3 foot high horsetail as a hedge Reply With Quote

    May 25, 2020 | 06:00 15 Scouring rush and horsetail, 12oz MCPA and 2 liters rup smokes it pretty decent. Didn't get it all but stopped it good enough to say it works. Just spot spray. Reply With Quote

    I never had alot of luck in the fall.
    In the spring I will shut off sectional control and go over the patches again. Reply With Quote

    May 25, 2020 | 10:23 17 Alot of what has been suggested, we do or have done. But one other thing is to spray twice. Once very early and again just before seeding. Hopefully ten days or more apart. 1 litre rel. Reply With Quote
    May 28, 2020 | 10:41 18 coverage is key, because of the growing points, 10-15 gal helps a lot with 1.5 REL Reply With Quote
