Waiting on the Nebraska Agricultural Dept. report regarding my complaint which I amended on Monday, my alfalfa field got hit pretty good too. The 2,4-D label clearly states that treated alfalfa cannot be fed to livestock. The Atrizine label restricts livestock grazing for 21 days which affects my horse pasture below the dam on my pond as well.

Wow what a mess, this is terrible but I really appreciate you keeping us informed. I am certainly learning a lot about the 2,4 D. I know it is so commonly used since you can spray a field and only get the weeds. It sounds like there is so much more to know and learn.
Good luck!
Dave

Shorty did you talk to the guy prior to the spraying. If so then you may have a gross negligence claim ( punitive damages) possible.

Update from spraying roundup with their included surfactant. I fully admit i thought maybe the rodeo route was a way to mark the glysophate up for profit. Yesterday I sprayed cattails with a 1.6 percent roundup mix around a portion of my 2 acre pond at 3pm. Today I went back at 5pm and found 4 dead gills and 2 dead crappie. 5 of the 6 appeared to actually be dead for awhile and 1 10in crappie had not been dead very long. I admit ignorance and assume roundup was the reason. Will now buy rodeo and use a non ionic surfactant. Posting for others heads up. Hope I donít find many more tomorrow.

I sprayed rodeo on the dog bane in the North end of my pond last Friday, no dead fish so far and the dog bane is sitting in a foot of water with all of the rain we have had in the last week. Oh, the dog bane got curled pretty good from 2,4-D drift on May 16th, this patch of dog bane is at least 50-60 yards inside our property line.

You can buy aquatic Roundup. It is the standard surfactant in regular Roundup that is toxic to fish.

Just received a notice from my small farm insurance company on AG chemical liability. Looks like they are taking notice.

Here we go again...details to follow, a second round of spraying occured Monday afternoon in almost identical wind conditions, Roundup and Laudis this time, it will be a few days before any effects start to show and just how much drift occured. Heavy rain here this morning with run off coming into the pond. My no drift signs were completely ignored.

Sounds like bad faith to me ! Collect a runoff sample.
