1/2 acre plot planted late yesterday.
« on: August 08, 2013, 09:03:22 AM »
I tried something new on a plot last night. I sprayed tall grasses with round up the day before and then disc it up yesterday and seeded it with a mix of winter peas and oats and litly disc the seed in and the packed it down by driving my little tractor over the lot. I got 2 tenth of rain on the plota 2 hours after I finsihed and they are calling for rain on Friday. I will try to get some pic's.

Great timing on the rain. That's the most important ingredient.

How long does it take round up to do its thing?  Is one day enough?

Not sure about the round up...but glad you got it in and the rain was great timing. Best of luck and looking forward to your pictures. The oats and peas should be a great mix.

Grass was not showing signs of dieing but 24 hours should have been enough time for the round up to make it to the roots. I am keeping my finger crossed.

I've heard 24 hours with a lot of sun. Longer if its cloudy. I guess however long it takes that photosynthesis thing to happen.

 Snort,
As you know I am not a farmer but I was wondering if the Roundup will have a negative effect on the seeds given you sprayed the ground only 24 hours before.

Round up does not affect the germ on any seeds.

I believe round up takes several days to do any good. You can see the leaves turning yellow but takes time to get to the roots and kill the plant.  You can put down seed as soon as the chemical is dry and wont hurt germination.

you should be ok.. round up will work as long as it dried on the plant leaves usually 24 hours is good.. your seed will be ok, as round up only works on the foliage as a penetrant thru plant tissue.. seeds and soil  are ok good luck
