    So when we have had a drought like this, how does this affect roundup apps?

    well, roundup doesn't need to be watered in to be active, however if your targets are in domrancy due to lack of water, r-up would be pretty useless, but then again, if things were dormant, why would you be spraying in the first place? The second area would involve how vigorous the plant is growing and how that would affect internal movement of material to the roots of your target, but again, this goes back to not spraying things that are not growing. If it's growing, you should be able to use your r-up, if not, then why would you be spraying in the first place.

    To kill the plant , is why you would be spraying .
    Weather it's dry or wet , growing or not , we kill 'em .
    It's what they want , and yes they do die
