Weed Killer

Hi All, just sprayed some Gallup 360 weed killer round the place today.

Anyone know how long before I can let my Chickens free range on the land ?

I've searched the net & the instructions but can't seem to find it.

I'm presuming this is glyphosphate 360g/l. If so it's been discussed a few times on this forum, here's one thread, http://forum.backyardpoultry.com/...amp;t=7969446&hilit=+roundup.

As long as it's had chance to dry it'll be fine mate.

Honestly try a bottle of vinegar 20p as much salt as will dissolve and a dash of washing up liquid. I was sceptical but I tried it in first week of April and the grass/ weeds are still dead and it is harmless. Any stubborn deep rooted stuff pour salt on them.

I wonder how many bottles of vinegar it would take to fill my knapsack sprayer. I'm still trying to find a heavy smoker to provide me with butts for nicotine spraying.
