Pre's for brushy areas

What pre would you use for rough area brush areas? For instance, lets say you clear out an area of brush,briars and vines and you want to the degree possible keep it somewhat clear. I know this area is going to need intermitent doses of gly and whatever pre.

Pre might not do much good. A lot of brush, briars and vines spread by roots and underground rhizomes. Plant grass or mow or better yet--both.
You are in Bermuda country, right?

Milestone or Tordon. Those are residual herbicides for vines and brush. Banvel at 1 lb per acre might work as well.

I see what you are saying. This is not an area that would be mowable though.

Ar,
I am trying to understand the area also..........!
I used to buy and use a lot of Dacthal!!!!! I don't see it much anymore around here!
Can you not use Barricade, Pendimethalin, gallery ? Freehand! Snapshot!
I use my own mixture of prodeuce.............gly and barricade!! gly and pendimethalin.

Just make sure this area is site specific and doesn't violate the label.

I guess I could use the standard turf pre's: pendi, barricade & etc but I was looking to stop more brush type growth. Really haven't done much of this type of work and was looking for recommendations.

Dacthal has been restricted to agricultural use only thanks to the FPQA. DNA herbicides and Gallery will not do much to brush that is regenerating from underground structures or seeds. Sahara or Arsenal works for non leguminous brush. Leguminous brush responds better to Milestone or Escort.

I think I'm going to use Tordon. Seems there are different formulas. I will be blanket spraying an area that has been cleared of brush, vines & etc. For those of you who have used this product which formula do I need?

I have used Tordon but i didn't know there were differnt formulas The one i used had 2 4 D in it. I mixed it at 1 gal per 100 gals of water sure does a good job.

I also like Crossbow on rose bushes
