    I took a quick pic before I started spraying yesterday. I'l definitely post up some pics if I can figure out how to do it. I just looked at my "Farm Logs" app. From the time I frost seeded in March, we had a total of .45" of rain for the next 35 days. I sprayed with gly on May 10th, but I just think that it was so stinkin dry that nothing was up yet. I actually planted a couple small areas into switch on June 15th that came up like gangbusters! I'll try to get a pic of those areas also.

    If the Quinclorac works, should I still mow or let it go?

    Get tapatalk app. Type in Iowawhitetail. Pics super easy!!!! Attach from phone as medium size. So Simple even I could do it!! ;)
    If it’s dead- leave it. If some or any is alive - I’d mow only if it crowds canopy.

    The quinclorac appears to have worked really well. After 2 or 3 days the foxtail was turning brown and beginning to droop. These pics are of the day that I sprayed and 6 days later. It seemed like after the first few days, the switch just shot out the top of the wilting foxtail. It's not a great stand of switch, but looks a lot better than it did 1 week ago. I feel like if I had hit the foxtail around early to mid July, I would have had a better stand of switch. In case anyone is interested, we applied about 1 gallon of Drive 75 pere acre with crop oil added. Edit. Pics are pretty bad i guess. The brown areas are the foxtail.

    Wow! That’s actually really good!!! Next year you will have some really nice switch. Well done & u should be very impressed later on. That quinclorac DID accomplish goals there on one pic I saw. Well done- that’s a SUCCESS!

    If I didn't know better, I'd swear that the switch feeds on quinclorac. It's really exploding.
