    Where does everyone get there grass/weed killer for there food plots? I don't like paying the price for roundup and I was wondering if there is a place that you can get it cheaper or do people get an off brand?

    Off brands work just fine as long as it's 41% Glyphosate.

    Farm and Home usually have some good stuff.

    Absolutely, like John said, just check the gly %. I get the 2.5 gallon containers for 50-70 bucks and it goes a long way.

    We used a product called "Eraser" two years ago and it was pretty impressive. You can also ask a farmer in your area for the ag grade Roundup. It's scary how powerful that stuff is! They buy the stuff by the drum and often times you can buy a small amount for next to nothing.

    What he said. Just check your local farm supply/ seed and feed store. They should have generic gly, but like ben said, check the %
