Round up.

Go to your local feed store and get it in a concentrated bottle. They also have off brands that are just as effective. Mix it with water in a sprayer. A bottle is about $10. I have a sprayer I put on a 4 wheeler. It connects to the battery. Or you can use a lawn mower instead of a 4 wheeler.

Be careful and do not buy the cheap brand of Glyphosate at Atwoods. I have had problems with it gelling up in small quantities and plugging the spray nozzle. I contacted the manufacturer but they couldn't help me. the name of the brand to avoid is COMPARE-N-SAVE.

A natural or organic option to use would be a high concentration of corn meal gluten if your are looking to go that route. mix it up in a sprayer and use it just like round up.

Can you kill small trees and bushes by painting the Round Up on a fresh cut in the wood?
I am not 100% sure, but, I think it will only kill the leaves. Give it a try and see. There are mixtures at a feed store that will do the trick

If you want it dead and to stay dead don't bother with round-up. Get a ground sterilent. You need to be careful with it though.

Below from Purdue:

Soil Sterilants
Some herbicides are designed to kill all unwanted plants
in non-vegetated areas AND remain active in the soil for
long time periods, some for 10+ years. These longresidual
herbicides, or soil sterilants, have great potential
to cause unintentional damage to nearby plants. Soil
sterilants are not safe to use in the home landscape due
to the close proximity of desirable plants. Homeowners
are advised to use other methods of control. Examples of
soil sterilant herbicides include prometon (Pramitol),
bromacil (Hyvar), and tebuthiuron (Spike).
Never apply soil sterilants in areas where any possibility
exists of surface runoff or seepage through the soil, or
where soil may contain roots of desirable trees or shrubs.
Roots of mature trees often extend a distance of 50 feet
or more from the trunk, so it may not always be obvious
where roots of desirable plants are growing. Never move
soil from treated areas into gardens or where other plants
are to be grown.

There may be better products than RoundUp for killing trees, forbs and bushes. I would recommend a trip to the local OSU County Extension office for some information.

I can't remember the name of it but I got some brush and grass killer at Tractor Supply that you mixed with diesel fuel. Probably not the most environmentally friendly I used it 3 years ago and haven't had to use it again.

Get some Tordon RTU, costs about 11-12 dollars a bottle. Squirt it around the base. Can also use it to treat stumps.

Thanks Curtis for the info. Where can you get this stuff?
I get it at my local farm coop here in Newkirk. I'm not sure if someplace like Atwoods would have it or not. Stillwater Mill would probably have it.

I have a field sprayer that I use on our farm so I have access to chemicals when I need some to spray around the yard and farmstead. Much cheaper when you buy chemicals in larger quantities. I just got a 250 gal shuttle of Roundup at $15 a gallon. A gallon would spray about 5 acres so you do the math.

Is this gallon highly concentrated that needs to be diluted with water at a rate of about 1-2 oz of roundup per gallon of water? If so, this is what I use.

I use it as a weed eater too. Starting late may spray it where you weed eat when you get done mowing and weed eating. Spray when the grass is low and it will decompose down to dirt. When you see green stubbles, spray them. You won't have to weed eat all year and it won't look ugly. It will be a bare spot.

I was curious to know if one has to be licensed in order to purchase this. Thanks for the information.
