    I believe if you dont plan on spraying at least twice then you shouldnt mess with it. You wont be happy.
    Run a straight disc through it at least once in the spring to cut rhizomes.

    Awesome looking plot I put In my first clover plot and it looking and doing pretty well. I'm happy with it. It is continuous work though spraying and mowing it to keep it maintained and weed free and mine isn't completely weed free like yours but mostly.

    That is one of the best clover plots I've seen.

    Does 2,4-d not kill the clover? I thought I read somewhere that it would.

    Great looking plot Perry! I have fought the weeds this year and learned the timing of spray lesson well. Plots looking good now, next year it should be really good. Do you frostseed also?

    24d will but 24dB will not. Ask for butyrac200

    I have frost seeded a few times but I'm not sure if the success rate was worth it. Hard to tell.
    I cut the thin plots with a disc ran straight a few weeks ago and broadcast some forage rape. I am going to the farm tomorrow. I will post pics. I am interested in seeing how that worked.
