View Full Version : Complete weed kill

08-01-2004, 11:55 AM
I have approx. 3 acres Im getting ready to seed in about a month. First I have to kill all of the weeds. Round-up is very expensive!! Can you guys give me a recipe for weed killer that is not so costly. Ive looked around a bit on this forum and I havent seen a definitive answer to this question.

Round-up is expensive??? You can get a 2 1/2 gallon jug for less than $60 bucks. Do a google search under 'glyphosate".

btw Roundup is non-selective, it will kill the grass too. Use killex if you want to just kill the weeds before seeding and Roundup if you want to kill everything before seeding.

If you add about 1-3 oz of TeraVita LC-12 humic acid per 10 gallons of Round-Up solution (or other generic glysophate), you can generally reduce the rate up to 50%. This has been tried repeatedly with success.
