I am going to use roundup to kill some of the grass around where I plan on planting a food plot next season. Should I use the roundup now or should I apply it after the winter? Or do both

Don't apply it now. Roundup (glyphosate) is taken in through the plant tissue/leaf surface and must be applied during the active growing season. Read your product label and understand the information contained in it, as with all pesticides the label is the law.

Certainly not banned, it's sprayed on thousands of acres of crops every year. You do need a license to buy it for commercial use.

Round up is not banned. It is available for purchase outside of HRM at many CT stores, including New Minas. It is under lock and key and you are asked what you intend to use it for....No licence required to buy it, at least when it is for domestic use..

I agree with the above posts.....except Dan...(sorry dan). Like said above.....you can buy it very easily at CT or Home Hardware. I have used it this time of year, but just around the house with success. However, for a food plot, I would wait til spring. Plow the soil in the fall,and let it rest next winter, then plant your food plot the following spring.

I think the pure round up from years ago is banned. What you get at the hardware stores now, is a more mild round up. It will still kill what ever it touches, so be careful.

It's regulated by Nova Scotia environment, it can be sprayed to control invasive species as a residential application. If used outside of the allowed uses you can be fined. Different rules apply for agricultural uses I'm sure.
