So Guys,

Back to that original question now years later...kind of ...sort of.

I need a cost effective general herbicide around my property lines to take out briars, burdock you name it. Roundup works but costs me approximately $2 per gallon of spray. Is there a less expensive alternative these days? The spray would not be used within 50 feet of the pond. My landscape buddy suggested Cornerstone.

I also need a herbicide to use on the riprap in the swales to the pond as well as shoreline. Is there a cost effective product for that?

You might look at Shore-Klear.

If we accept that: MBG(+)FGSF(=)HBG(F1)
And we surmise that: BG(>)HBG(F1) while GSF(<)HBG(F1)
Would it hold true that: HBG(F1)(+)AM500(x)q.d.(=)1.5lbGRWT?
PB answer: It depends.

Thanks Sparkie,

Probably not something carried locally. Do you know any PBF members that sell it? I know I can probably find it on-line but I like to try and support the forum guys if I can. If you do, or anybody else does, please send me a PM.

Thanks,

Bill

More than that. A well known moderator from the Pittsburgh area, and a well known fish monger from the St. Louis area, consumed about a pound of my headcheese in about 15 minutes.

The AR in the pictures of that well known moderator's avatar came from that same weekend. The AR was supplied by our WV legal counselor! That legal beagle also helped consume the headcheese - along with beverages that probably could be construed as weed killer. Not all was home made in WV!

wink grin

I think Cornerstone is a generic glyphosate that is not rated for ponds.

Bill D., I'll send you a PM.

Correct statement, in reference to terrestrial-labeled glyphosates which contain tallow-amine surfactants (wetting-agents) which can be harmful to aquatic organisms - including fish.
If a non-selective herbicide is appropriate, use an aquatic-label formulation of glyphosate (ie. RODEO, ROUNDUP CUSTOM, AQUANEAT, SHORECLEAR, etc.), OR imazapyr (POLARIS, etc); all of which will require an additional surfactant to enhance leaf-coverage and leaf-cuticle absorption.
If a selective herbicide treatment is desired (to control broadleaf weeds and woody plant species while leaving grassy-plants mostly unaffected), consider using an aquatic-labeled 2,4-D or triclopyr product, OR a soon-to-be aquatic-labeled formulation of aminopyralid. More details on the later in June.
For anyone interested in managing wildlife food plots, there are also grass-selective herbicides that control undesirable & intrusive grasses while leaving broadleaf plants/dicots unaffected.

Kelly:

You touched on food plots. What can be used to control undesirable broadleaf weeds in clover? (I have grass covered in those plots)

Scott,

Try 2-4 db I have used this on my clover plots for controlling broadleafs but mowing still works the best.
