Cocklebur removal

4 posts in this topic

I have a food plot going. Everything is coming up nicely except the cockleburs have taken over. Is there anything I can spray on them with out ruining the rest of the plants & trees? I was just chopping the bur plants down but that can be worse I am told. The seeds fall off and more burs come up. Any ideas? Thanks and good luck.

You can chop them down while they are green, as the seeds may not be far enough along to germinate. As far as a herbicide goes, I'm not sure what you can do. How long has the food plot been going? Did you use round-up before you did any tilling to kill any grass and weeds beforehand?

At first sight of the title of your post, I thought maybe you had a technique for getting them buggers out of your hair. shocked.gif

Contact the DNR. I know they have a program for getting rid of cockleburs.

with cocleburs there seed stays in the soil for seven years.

Best thing to do is to hand pull and if there are burrs on them remove them from the area. We used to put them on a pile and burn them. The other thing you could do is spray them with roundup in a hand sprayer all you have to do is

get the leaves wet and they will die.
