Will Crossbow Herbicide kill overgrown cutover?
I have some land that was cutover. Will Crossbow kill most everything but grass? This land is scattered with pine, hardwood trees, brush, briers, private, holleys and all types of weeds. It is a typical south Alabama cutover I am trying to turn into pasture. I do not desire to kill the bahia grass or all the trees but need to thin it out so to speak, make it more manageable.
Crossbow Herbicide is known to be a great product to kill brush and other unwanted woody plants. You should not spray if it is windy, and be careful that over spray does not get on the desirable trees. Crossbow Herbicide is not supposed to harm established grasses and should pose no threat on your Bahia grass, according to the manufacturer. This being said, we always recommend treating a small area first to test the results. As long as your grass is not stressed by drought and it is healthy the grass will not be harmed. Before using Crossbow Herbicide we suggest going over the product label.
