At Real World Wildlife Products, we probably get as many questions about herbicides as any other topic. For this reason, we have decided to start selling some of the herbicides that can be used on Real World seed products. We are doing this to help ensure that you get the right herbicides for your plots to help you have success as wildlife land managers.
Keep in mind that you should always follow the label directions for any chemical. Real World does not and will not give any recommendations regarding application rates or methods. READ THE LABEL!
Understanding Different Herbicides
In basic terms, herbicides will typically fall into one of the following categories; pre-emergent or post-emergent. It is important to understand how the herbicide you are using works.
Pre-Emergent Herbicides are applied to the soil to help prevent weeds from growing. How long a pre-emergent herbicide works and what specific weed species it works on will vary with each herbicide and application rate.
Post-Emergent Herbicides are used to kill weeds that are already growing. These herbicides are sometimes selective to kill only certain weed/plant species and sometimes are non-selective, meaning they kill almost any plant they come into contact with. Post-emergent herbicides always work best on smaller, young, vigorously growing weeds.
Here are some of the herbicides that Real World Wildlife Products intends to offer our customers. Please keep in mind that not all of these will be available at all times.
