Default Generic Herbicide for Grass in Clover

Is there a generic herbicide available for killing grass and cereal grains in food plots to allow the clover to fill in?

All of my plots have ladino top sown in them that I planted back in the fall with my 3-way blend. The Whitetail Institute products, Slay and Arrest, seem to be ridiculously expensive. Plus, as a general rule of thumb, if it has a picture of a deer on the package you're going to pay a premium for it.

If you have both grass and broadleaf to kill in clover, consider IMOX. When you look at the cost to apply clethodim for grass and 24db for broadleaf vs. IMOX which controls both, IMOX can be more cost effective. If you are only dealing with grass OR broadleaf, pick clethodim OR 24db depending of your problem.

Pretty sure that I am going to switch to IMOX this year. Even if it's not cheaper it sure will be easier than mixing cleth and 24db

I have been spraying 24db and clethodim making 2 trips but after reading about IMOX i may give it a try. Since I could make one trip for broads and grass it would be easier for me to get a 3PT sprayer. What type sprayers do you guys use?

I think the clethodium will be fine. I really don’t have any broadleaf to speak of in my plots. I use a tank sprayer on my 4-wheeler. A few years ago I bought some brass spray nozzles from McMaster-Carr, sprayer hose, and built a boomless sprayer. I also added side nozzles last year. With enough pump I can spray an entire field in 3 passes.

For broadcast:
25 gallons of water
16 oz of clethodim 2e
1 pint of crop oil

Go slow and use the entire amount on 1 acre
