Default How do I get rid of this weed?

Not real sure what the exact name is because when I ask somebody, I always get a different answer. Iíve sprayed with remedy and red diesel, but it keeps coming back. Iíve had less trouble getting rid of the huisache in the yard (that was no easy task either though). Any help would be appreciated.

Looks like green briar. Green briar is good deer food.

Yes, that is green briar. Hard to get rid of because of its woody root tuber. May want to google recommended herbicide or contact county agent for recommendation.

looks like green briar to me too. Put up a feeder and the deer will eat this ground before they start on the corn.

Hot bacon grease. Clip it short and pour hot bacon grease on it. It will kill it dead.

I started 5 years ago with millions growing up into trees and across the ground of what I can now call my yard. I still battle with them but not near as bad. If you cut them and then spray right after they are cut you have a better chance of killing them. If you have several coming up in close proximity there is likely a root ball close that needs to be dug up. The root ball is between the size of a golf ball and baseball and looks like something only the devil could make. The bad part about trying to find the root iS the vine will travel under ground for a long ways before it comes out of the ground. Just keep cutting and spraying and you will eventually win. I use remedy as well. Good luck!

StickNString...Briar. Its tough as nails and Roundup doesnt seem to phase it. Weird thing is the only thing Ive seen kill these is when I fertilized my orchard and dumped some 21-0-0 on one to see if the fertilizer salt would do anything...and the salts burned the briar vine...dead. Good luck.

I'd rather have the briars than waste my gravy grease.

The plant is greenbriar, from the Smilax family that include many different species. Very difficult to control, most broadcast applications do not work effectively. You'll have to use an individual plant treatment using 25% remedy and 75% diesel. Thoroughly wet the base of the plants.

Yep greenbriar. The soft tops are pretty good to eat. They taste similar to asparagus. That is if I can beat the deer to them.

Cimarron mixed with a surfactant will kill it and anything it gets on!

Do I need to snip it before I spray with the remedy & diesel mixture like I do the huisache? When I spray them, they die pretty quick, but they seem to come back in the same area real quick too. I suppose that's because of the long trailing root system.
Everywhere in my yard where these have been giving me issues is dirt and green briar. The remedy & diesel mixture is keeping everything else dead but these.

I don't know how you kill it, but I promise you shredding it with the brush hog will make it quadruplify in a year.

Get some stump and brush killer, clip it off and paint the stub with the mixture. I use it on stuff like this frequently with good success

Don't necessarily need to cut first, but greenbriar produces lots of seeds, so until you get them under control, there is always a lot of natural regeneration. Also, the chemical works better when the plants are not drought-stressed (more effective and transferring the chemical to the roots).

I believe remedy is what you want. Check the label for sure though.

The best thing I've found is just keep mowing it. I've tried ag grade Round Up and it just burns the leave a little. It might do better if you added a surfactant.

Green briar

Remedy ultra & surfactant will kill it. DONT over do the mixture. That’s where most go wrong. They burn the leaves off before the root takes it in
