What's the truth about gly. and rain?

Label says 24hrs. (no rain for) for optimal performance.

What has been your experiences? Dodging storms can be tricky this time of year.

Sounds like we need an experiment. I am sure Monsanto has tried this, but keeps it secret.
Thinking.
Spray 24 tomatoes w Roundup, rinse them off with water at one-hour intervals.

I'm interested in the results but too lazy to actually do it.

I keep wifi in the trailer & check the radar before spraying, I try to avoid spraying Gly if it looks we can expect rain within 2 hours. My experience is it does well after 2 hours or more.

BTW I use generic Gly & spreader sticker if it doesn't foam when I shake it.

Earlier in the year I sprayed RU on some very long grass and about 1.5hrs later a storm came over with very heavy rain. Went back about 2 weeks later expecting to respray but found 100% kill. The round up did have a little Agral in it though!

I've "heard" the 2 hr. (give or take) testimonial, also. I was/am just curious as to your personal results. I'm also assuming the extent of the rain occurrence has some bearing on the product's efficacy.

Thanks for your replies.

ditto with vencops

I use Agrium's version of Roundup. My tip n pour has "4 - 6 oz" per gallon written on it (by me), but I always use 6 oz per gallon with a little LI700. A couple weeks ago, I sprayed weeds in rocks along a pond cuz the mowers were tired of weed wacking the weeds. When I sprayed, it was warm, muggy, and misting lightly. 2 to 3 hours later, heavy rains moved in. When the mowers were their today they saw that all the weeds were dead (brown). I figure the warm/humid weather sped up the uptake cuz stomates were pretty well open. I used a Shurflo SRS600 backpack sprayer. my 2 cents
