    Double checking that Clethodim will not harm the sunflowers? What rate do you spray? Might give that a shot Saturday if I can still get over the sunflowers in the ranger, if not will spot spray with my sprayer as able. Thanks

    Clethodim is the same as select.
    6 to 16 ounces per acre. It only controls grass .
    Some of my grass it seems like it only stunted . Johnson grass is dead.
    It does not kill any broadleaf weeds.

    I think I sprayed at 10oz per acre with some surfactant/crop oil. It smoked the johnson grass. But its only a grass killed. Nightshade is coming on strong!

    Thanks for the feedback. Sprayed Clethodim at a rate of 16oz per acre with a surfactant Saturday. Could barely get over the sunflowers in the ranger, did knock a few down. Looking forward to seeing the results. Thought this page from Eagle Seeds had some good information on it https://www.eagleseed.com/sunflower.html IMG_8668 - Copy.JPG IMG_8659 - Copy.JPG

    Thanks for all the great advice gentleman. This is one week after spraying Clethodim at a rate of 16oz per acre with a surfactant. Picture is taken at same angle as one above. Very pleased with the results especially on the Johnson grass which was becoming a bigger and bigger issue each year.

    Not my best field but heads are starting to show. I've got nightshade in here somewhat bad. I'll probably move spots next year and plant soybeans here. Dicamba will handle nightshade just fine.

    I was thinking they outlawed dicamba. My fields are looking decent. Did not get the weed control I hoped for and the lightning did not seam to do much. But they should be good enough for a shoot or two.

    Weed is outlawed yet people still smoke the heck out of it.
