Has anyone used the new herbicide Chateau by Valent? I have used Pursuit in the past but it kills off the Orchard grass. I really dont want to spend the money and plant RR alfalfa. Any help would be appreciated. Steve

What I read said not to use on mixed grass stands.....just straight alfalfa... before it reaches 6 inches tall and not after 25 days before harvest.

Regards, Mike

What about 2-4-DB? Not much alfalfa grown around here, but I did talk to an Agronomist who said if they still make 2-4-DB, it should leave the grass & alfalfa, but kill the rest.

Never used db(butyric acid active), but you have to have a pesticide license to purchase....here is a link to the label on 175...200 has a little more butyric in it.

You need 10 days of no rain after putting on the DB, and the control is not that great. But it can be better than nothing is the alfalfa can jump up over the weeds and shade them out.
