Default Roundup 365 weed killer thats good for a year?

Roundup 365 ? is that a joke or a scam? I got an e mail showing a 1 or 2 gallon jug.
Is it good? (only spray once) or bad? so strong it kills weeds for a year (by pre emergence type action or do they mean that the plant you sprayed will stay dead for a year? and kills everything else when it runs off for a year?
ANd the sprayer wand has AA batteries in it?

It contains a residual product called imazapic which has around a 120 day half-life. It will kill shrubs and trees if you apply over their root system. Yes it will run off and kill desirable plants. From a licensed ex applicator this stuff is serious. If you use it read and understand the label.

double your glyphosate induced cancer with a powered jet sprayer. Sounds like fun. I'd Hire it out.

I've used several of those battery powered wands, and they typically work as expected the first three times.
Then pour the product into a squeeze bottle and throw the original package/applicator away.

I do not believe any weed killer will do what you desire for a full year. Gasoline might, but not entirely good for your environment.

I've been mixing my own weed killer lately (Vinegar, Epson Salts and Dawn) and getting good results using the utility sprayer.

I've used it and it kills everything I've sprayed it on areas that I wanted everything dead, and it didn't disappoint. I'd spray weeds in the beginning of the season and wouldn't need to spray again till next season.

It kills Everthing. Not a bad chemical as far as farm chemicals go. We’re gloves and watch wind direction. Drift will kill to Will have to spray again once weeds come again.

for a sprayer I would just get a backpack hand pump one. That’s what I use around the yard

RM43 Total Vegetation control works as well and as long at about 2/3 the price of Roundup 365. Use accodring to instructions. I bought a Ryobi One Plus sprayer for my last application. Had an old Roundup pump sprayer that I used for several years, but for tired pumping it up. If you apply it too lightly you. may need a second application, but I've it a week before reapplying. With a sprayer I try to get a light glisten on the leaves of the plants I'm trying to kill, and add a few drops of Woolite to each gallon as a surfactant. It definitely limits weeds for up to a year, but two applications a year is probably a more realistic figure if you want to suppress everything.

They can guarantee it for 10 years if they want.. If you kill a weed, it ain't coming back.. another one might grow in its place but the original one is dead, gone

"Crossbow herbicide".... smokem if you gotm!

On my 625 acre farm I've tried all the homemade weed killers (diesel, gas, oil, salt/vinegar, chlorine etc...) But nothing says, "SCREW YOU grass/weeds/brush, I've got fishing to do and I HATE touching that damn weedater!" like 4oz per gallon in a 25gal atv sprayer of a commercial herbicide!!!

Co-op is a great place as is your local ag-products biz, my farm neighbor works for the local "Crop Production Services" place. Their biz is selling seed, fertilizer and assorted chemicals. They got GOOD STUFF that goes full out nuclear on anything green/leafy/bark covered. Yardwork is for those who lead BORING LIVES, I've got far much better things to do like fish, hunt, shoot guns, grill out with friends, spend time with the wifey and kids than to WASTE lifes precious moments mowing, chopping and cutting BS that begins growing the instant it's cut and you have to do it all over again 5-7 days later.

You can even get "soil poisoners" that will kill the soil itself, great for any area you plan on paving/graveling over (or just are tired of dealing with it). BUT make sure it's not prone to wash/erosion. You've got to have at least SOMETHING to keep the soil there during the rains. (I wish someone would come up with a "sprayable astro-turf"... spray it over bare dirt, it covers it permanently and looks like grass for decades but is zero maintenance!

I spray a bunch of land. When I’m spraying fence line, and don’t want it to come back, I’ll use a product called Mojave. Mix it why gly and a quality surfactant. It will turn the ground to dirt

Retail packaged herbicides are way overpriced. Especially ones that come with a goofy sprayer.

That said, regardless of the herbicide used, READ AND UNDERSTAND the application label before mixing/using. More is not necessarily better when it comes to herbicides, nor is "fast acting." Be especially careful with residual acting herbicides and soil sterilants in proximity to desirable growth.

I've used all kinds of weed killers.

If you want complete barren death, this is your stuff. Bare Spot Monobor-Chlorate. Sodium Metaborate 48.5%, Sodium Chlorate 30%

Just sprinkle the pellets. Make sure you really don't want anything where you put it. No sprayer needed.

Oh and if you have lots of area to spray, ditch those stupid sprayers amd get yourself an atomizer sprayer.

Hudson makes a decent one for like 250. If you spray lots, it will pay for itself quick as you will cut your sprayed product by like half. Your time to spray will be drastically reduced also. Plus you will guaranteed be getting more complete coverage.

I don't think its so much the variety we use, as much as it is the dumbass homeowners who look at a label and think to themselves, if 4oz is good, a quart without dilution is great. Not to mention I guarantee none of them look at annual application limits.

Salt will do the same thing, the very back of my backyard had a bunch of crap bushes, poison ivy etc..... salted the ground about 10 years ago and nothing has grown since

agree with that 100% and im sure we are all a little guilty of if a little works good then alot works great, i know i am! however i still think we dump way to much shit in the ground and we dont truly know the long term results of all these chemicals.
