Default Butyrac 200

Does anybody know where the best place to buy this is? I did a search on Rural King but didn't produce any results. I'm looking for a weed wiper for our clover plots.

Thanks

Don't pay for shipping, as this is a fairly widely distributed product you should be able to get it at your local coop or seed store.

Wes Weaver at Keystone Pest Solutions is TOP NOTCH! He has been a HUGE supporter of QDMA over the years and services many of the fine folks here on the forum with all of their food plot chemical needs online. You wont find much Butyrac 200 or Butoxone in any walk in stores around PA (respectfully) but Wes can put that at your door for the best price around period. Good luck!!

Default Red River

I was told that Keystone was bought out (or merged with??) Red River Chemical. Just a heads-up.

Save your money and use your hog (assuming you have one). Never had much luck with Butyrac. Good luck.

Welka what broadleaf were not controlled by the Butyrac (Some species are not listed on the label)? Did you use a crop oil with it (Most broadleaf weeds have a waxy coating that must be penetrated by herbicide)? Were the weeds actively growing when you sprayed them (If sprayed during extremely hot weather or extended dry conditions, many weeds will quit growing, going into a dormant state)? Just food for thought!

I have to concur with Smallplot on this on. I have used 2, 4, D-B (Butyrac 200 & Butoxone) for many years and they successfully kill and clean out just about every problematic broadleaf weed(with the exception of Thistle) in a clover plot. And, it will knock Thistle silly if the plant is young enough.

I would also add that conditions have to be really good and plants have to be actively pulling moisture from the soil in order to work. And without questioning your capabilities I will also add that an improper calibrated spray rig is the culprit 99% of the time when failures occur.
