RoundUp and Monkey grass

Yeah, that was fun, NOT. So many people are so different than those days. It's so nice to see so many people being environmentally interested.

Donald Rumsfeld is giving the president his daily briefing. He          concludes by saying: "Yesterday, 3 Brazilian soldiers were killed."
"OH NO!" the President exclaims. "That's terrible!"
His staff sits stunned at this display of emotion, nervously watching as the President sits, head in hands.
Finally, the President looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"

There are clumping and spreading forms of monkey grass. It takes several applications of Roundup to treat monkey grass. It is best to try when the plant is actively growing, but as you have discovered, the waxy leaves and tuberous roots make it hard to kill or dig up. Mow it short and treat new growth. Plan on at least 2-4 treatments through the growing season. Some people on a garden site I visit have been successful with Finale or Diquot. Again it will take multiple applications. I am not sure if Finale is as benign to the environment as is Roundup. (The faith based anti-Monsanto crowd need not chime in again, as the thread was already hijacked once). I know that Diquot is not. Be sure to read the labels. For instance, Roundup recommends a different mix than the commonly sold pre-diluted Roundup for the control of monkey grass, so you would need to buy the concentrate and mix it up as per the instructions.

Really now. Seems to me that it takes great faith to ingest poison, sprinkle it around the planet in liberal doses and expect not to be harmed.
Kinda like them there folks what handles buzzsnakes, if'ns ya' know what I mean, Vern.
But hey, what do I know, being the ignorant sod that I am, able to see in only two-dimensions.

You may not know what 3/4 dca is or 2/4 dca is. Kills plant life and is cheap so it is good yea right. My GC work was to evaluate these poisons and add as much water to the product as it was by the pound sold. Stinks like death .

You mean this shit?
Humans exposed to 2,4-Dichloroaniline for relatively short periods of time are subject to slight skin and eye irritation, blue skin, blue lips or finger nails, dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath, confusion, convulsions. Unconsciousness, or abdominal pain. However, humans subjected to prolonged exposure are prone to the formation of methaemoglobin in their blood supply, which effectively reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the bloodstream and could rapidly result in death. The substance is particularly toxic to aquatic organisms, which is due to the impediment of the 2,4-Dichloroaniline on the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood supply, thus effectively suffocating the aquatic organism.
2,4-Dichloroaniline present in soil biodegrades relatively slowly. However, 2,4-Dichloroaniline (2,4-DCA) does not sorb onto soil particles very well and as a result may leach into the groundwater. The first step of the biodegradation of 2,4-DCA is the dechlorination of 2,4-DCA with a reductive dehalogenase that remove chlorine from the ortho position to form a monochlorinated aniline that can be readily degraded. The second step is an oxidative deamination of chloroaniline to chlorocatechol via a modified ortho-cleavage pathway as reported by Zeyer et al. (1985). With chlorinated anilines, a meta cleavage pathway forms dead end products or suicide (highly reactive) products. The dead end products are a result of the narrow substrate specificity of the catabolic enzymes of benzoate, phenol or aniline- degrading microbes that are ineffective at degrading chlorinated analogs.
Good stuff, what.

We used to call it blue lip. But it is really labeled a word for oxygen starved. I can't remember what to technical name is . Perhaps cyanotic. Some of us must exist in hell it seems to strive for the heavens.
I Guess.

Yeah. When I worked for Bayer, we had monthly blood tests, checking serum cholinesterase, as we manufactured several organophosphate poisons for animal application, along with a full range of vet meds.
When I worked in the water reclamation plant at the lead recycling hell hole, we had monthly blood work for blood lead levels.
Whooboy, ain't it the truth....
If you wanta get to heaven, you gotta live in hell awhile (apologies to Ozark Mountain Daredevils...)

Ah, so says the faith-based Monsanto lovers! Unite! Just keep your damned poisons away from me and mine.

Why not just dig the stuff up and be done with it It is a clump forming plant and very shallow rooted. It could be out of there in no time at all.................
