Tip & How-To about Garden

A convenient way to kill individual weeds in your lawn

I purchase full strength roundup from places that sell fertilizers etc to farmers. I mix my own roundup per their recommendations plus a little. I fill a small eye drops bottle with my mixed roundup. I like this bottle because it has a small opening so I can squeeze out a drop at a time.. I carry the bottle of mixed roundup in my pocket, with the lid shut tight of course, and as I mow and I spot a weed I take out the bottle and place on or two drops on that weed. One drop of roundup on a leaf of a plant will kill it but I try to place one or two drops right in the middle of the plant. Roundup is fed to the root of the plant from the leaf kills the weed from the roots up. This works well because I can kill the weed without killing grass or other plants around it. Wind will not effect it because the roundup is place on the plant not sprayed on it. Roundup needs about 12 hours to work so do not water right away. Ready mixed roundup from a store may work, I have not tried it because I want to be sure the mixture is strong enough to do the job. About 4 ounces per gallon of water is recommended, I increase that to about 6 ounces. Works great.

How much Roundup do you mix in one gallon of water?


If you have the concentrate (label reads Concentrate Plus), the amount of Roundup will depend on the plants you want to kill. Use 6 fl oz (12 tablespoons) for 1 gallon for most plants. If you have seedlings or easy to kill weeds, use 3 fl oz (6 tablespoons) per gallon.

The Super Concentrate may have a different rate. The labels are usually on the manufacturer's web site as PDFs.

I hope this helps.

Need to know how to mix round up and water


Annual and perennial weeds can be controlled with a mixture of 6 fluid ounces of Roundup (12 tablespoons) per gallon of water. Small weed seedlings can be killed with half this strength: 3 ounces per gallon. When using Roundup Super Concentrate, mix 2.5 ounces (5 tbsp.) with a gallon of water to control most weeds and a half-strength solution for small weeds. Roundup Pro Concentrate is the strongest solution available. Spray a mixture of 2 ounces (4 tbsp.) on weeds and half that amount of concentrate on emerging plants. Since Roundup doesn't discriminate between weeds and other plants, use the least amount of herbicide possible to protect desirable vegetation.

Quantity of Roundup weed killer to spray 140 acreas of crop land


This 2.0% glyphosate is ready to apply at a rate of 3-10 gallons per acre That's 420-1400 gallons per 140 acres. Some weeds need a higher concentration than 2%. Most farmers buy 41% glyphosate concentrate, determine the number gallons of spray mixture their equipment will deliver, determine the concentration of glyphosate they need and mix the concentrate with water accordingly.
