    does anyone know the dilution rate for mixing round up for spraying ditches?

    I need the grass to stay somewhat green, but do not need it to grow much.

    I have read before if you mix it at 41% it will kill off sandburrs and still not kill bermuda grass, but act as a growth regulator.

    Why dont you just spray a growth regulator rather than take a chance with a non-selective herbicide?

    because I had a lot of roundup left over and this is 3 acres of land that I cleared off and now regrowth is beginning.

    I really dont care if it kills it or not. just curious about it.
