Spraying Cleth in a clover plot

Recommended Posts

I was able to get some Cleth to try and control the weeds and grasses in my clover plot, and Im wondering if it is too late to use it this year. If it is, Ill just mow the plot one more time and then spray it in the spring. What say you?

Never used it, but IMO it cant hurt used at anytime besides a drought. Spray then mow a couple weeks later? Or vice versa.

Sprayed mine last week. It takes 10 days or so and it's best to use a crop oil or other surfactant . 


I've hunted almost everyday of my life.. the rest have been wasted!

Well, I didnt have time to get the Kleth sprayed before I went on vacation, and it think its a little late at this point. Im just going to mow the plot one more time before fall and then spray it in the late spring next year.

ive also used a light mix of gly like 2 to 3 oz a gallon and it burns the clover a little but if you do it when there is not a drought the clover bounces back

Right, this is just for grasses as far as I know.  If the grass is still actively growing I think it should still work.  In my experience it is grasses that eventually choke out a clover plot.  Deer eat many of the weeds that grow in clover plots anyways.  We use 2-4 D for broadleaf weeds in the summer if they get bad.  Surfactant used with both.

No just grasses. Use glysophate for ferns.

Gly only kills ferns to a point. The leves die, but grow right back from the bulbs. They are a pain in the arse to get rid of.

ferns are a pain what i have done is hit them with a heavy mix of gly and turn the field when everything is dead ferns will start popping up again and repeat the gly that seems to get them

Also, if you are having a lot of trouble with ferns it is likely that the ph of that soil is very low and needs lime.  Seems like ferns pop up in places where little else wants to grow.

I have ferns all over my property in places where things grow just fine. They are just a pain to get rid of.
