Sprayed, how long before I can till & plant?

Sprayed a small part of neighbors area (weeds) by road, with about (4) gls of a mixture of Roundup & 2-4-D. I always ad more chemicals than normal to the weed killer mix. How long should I wait before I can plant? I'll be tilling it up first. Thanks.

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

I'm guessing your not licensed to spray. ( since you openly stated about not mixing properly.). The label is the law.

Why do you always mix hot?

Lic, no. Profit? None. Not biz related.

Hot mix: Roundup not as effective on certain weeds here.

Dont have to be licensed to be found guilty of violating ECL.
Heavy fines involved even if for personal use.

Not around my area. Enforcement is non existent.

Just because you're not getting caught doesn't make it right.

Label is the law, and you are clearly disregarding it.

I would say a heck of lot longer to wait. Replant is predicated on what is allowable by the label. You went beyond and have thrown that info into the garbage.

""It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling." its on every label. Even though enforcement appears to be non-existent doesn't mean it can't show up. Around here if something went bad from an app an insurance company will start looking for blame and others pockets. They sniff out a bad app and they will call the state pesticide cops.
