    What is it you are trying to accomplish? Kill vegetation for seeding, kill vegetation and sterilize or other? Has this area ever been treated before? What types of weeds/vegetation are you looking at?

    What is the size of the area you are treating and what equipment are you using?

    This will help us to make a rec.

    I am just North of you about an hour! Are you keeping busy down there with all the rain you have been getting? Everything up here is dying! Biggest drought in this area ever seen!

    Ya we are doing fine, i need a drought because of the brush im trying to clear at this current job.

    Where exactly are you located in Ohio?

    Basically im clearing a fence like of everything, some weeds, mostly grass and it all has been trimmed low, almost scalped.

    This area has never been treated before and there are no trees on the fence line.

    Size= about a 50 - 75 yard long fence line. One foot off the fence line is where everything needs to be dead. What i am trying to acomplish is give me a buffer when i trim, so i dont donated hundreds of feet of line to the fence gods.

    I am around the Eaton area.

    Are you dealing with broadleaves or are you looking at woody plants?

    I use Crossbow on my fence rows...but it will not get grass. You would probably want to go back or tank mix with Glyphosate (look at label) for grass control.

    This will be a very cheap mix for you to use! Crossbow and Gly are both very reasonable.

    Good Luck!

    I am dealing with mostly grass on these sprays, i have a section of fence that i am currently taking out but there are a few mature trees and such that i dont want to kill. I will have to wait on that and see how everything goes.

    If you dont mind me asking. What kind of business do you do in Eaton?

    Prosecutor Pro should do the trick. Lesco sells it and it has never let me down. I have killed an entire lawn with this product. It doesn't matter if its a broad leaf or grass weed, this product is non-selective.

    Don't rack your brain about it, it not that difficult. Just read the label, mix properly, spray, and watch it turn brown in a couple of days.
