How long do y’all wait to spray after bush-hogging?

I normally wait like a week, but I’m on a tight schedule and need to spray like 4 days after bush-hogging.

Will that be fine?

My guess would be yes. Would be better if you got a little rain between bush hogging and spraying, but either way I think you'd be good.

I try to wait two weeks also. A lot of your Round Up will not get to the live grass due to thatch on top. In two weeks the live grass will push through and you will get good contact.

Um, it may be just me but, glyphosate is a foliar application. Spraying after cutting seems backwards and less effective. I always spray first and then bush hog about two weeks later.

Also, I use Rodeo and not RoundUp. It’s less expensive and has the same glyphosate in it.

Spray first and let the grass die and dry. Then you can bush hog if needed to get rid of tall grass. I usually just disc three or four weeks after spraying and then plant.

Oh ok. I think I’m going to spray first then. I have to put my 4-Wheeler in the shop at Brookhaven Honda next Wednesday. So I won’t have my 4-Wheeler for at least 3-4 weeks till they can get the work done on it.

I’ll bush-hog them in two weeks from now. For now, I’ll spray the food plots and bush-hog the trails and around my oak trees and fruit trees. That should keep me busy for a while.

Thank y’all for the input. I appreciate it.
