Mowed my clover field for the last time this year and now grass has started to take it over:sad: I usually do my spraying in the spring, but can I still hit it with Clethodim this late in the year? Will spraying still be effective, or should I just let it go and spray it in the spring??
For those that spray Clethodim on clover, what is your application rate per acre? I've use 10-12oz of Cleth, with 32oz of crop oil, mixed with 25 gallons of water per acre, but haven't really had great results. I usually spray the second or third week of May. I am in Mecosta County. Thumbs up to all the contributors on this site. I learn something new every week. Thx.

You should get control on grass this time of year as the grass is actively growing. I have used according to label on alfalfa with marginal control, it's no silver bullet for me.

I believe now is actually a great time to apply clethodim for csg's, and I plan on doing so in a few days.

Best source I've found is Keystone Pest Control. And I've looked.

I hit my 1/2 + acre alfalfa and clover plots 2 wks ago for the second time this yr with clethodim. There isn't a green grass left in the alfalfa plot, haven't seen the clover plot since.
I used 8 oz on half acre and half a quart of crop oil. Took 2 wks for the oil to wash off and the deer are just now starting to eat again, so I would hurry.

Thanks for the replies. Planning on spraying the clover with Clethodim/crop oil tomorrow. I will monitor to see if fall spraying works better than spring spraying. Trail camera will tell me how long the deer avoid the plot after spraying. It is not a plot we hunt over, it is a larger destination plot. But if the deer head elsewhere to browse, that won't be good. I get my generic Clethodim online from Rural King. It was cheaper than going through Keystone.

Reading though this thread and it makes me think, if deer don't like to eat clover with crop oil on it does that mean i can spray it on my brassicas and they may leave them alone untill rain washes it off?
