Sprayed roundup on an area... can i till it up and garden there?


Edit: It's not roundup, but a similar product that is supposed to prevent growth for a year.

Have a small section of land where I sprayed this stuff on it. Tenants later asked if they could put a garden there. If I till the ground up thoroughly, will it still affect anything they plant?

Glyphosphate (Round up) is systemic to the plant it touches and travels no further in the ground. I have no idea what the chemical make up of Barrier is, and it may very well sterilize the ground, unlike Round up.

It's the same chemical, glyphosate. Look up the name, including Gordon's, & SDS which is Safety Data Sheet. Leave out the website name. You can do that for every legal chemical product. I'd give you the link but am on a bad cell phone.

So it works like Roundup but they won't release the concentration, may be much stronger. Maybe they could make raised bed gardens? Or pots.

It says it prevents vegetation growth for up to a year, so itís more than just roundup.
While tiling might reduce the year (mixing deep untraeated earth with the heavy treaded earth at or near the surface) I would wait a year for direct planting.

As NIK said, raised beds or pots would be the solution, with imported soil or planting mix. Or, some other area that you did not spray.

Sorry, I have been reading up on it, but had to change computers. The long acting ingredient is Imazapyr which other websites say can work for several years. There are warnings about the effect on animals.

BARRIER
ģ
Year-long Vegetation Killer Concentrate is a nonselective
herbicide which kills most annual and perennial grasses, broadleaf
weeds, vines, brush, and trees. The product is absorbed through
leaves, stems, and roots and moves throughout the plant. Treated
plants stop growing soon after application. BARRIER
ģ
Year-long
Vegetation Killer Concentrate will also provide residual control for up to
12 months in the treated area. Heavy rainfall will reduce the length of
residual control. Heavy clay soils may increase the length of residual
control.

It's made in Missouri but I would bet California doesn't allow it except for forestry uses. Just a bet.

Edit: Not for sale in AK, CA, CT, HI & WA.

Interesting lawsuit in Calif. Vineyard sues Railroad for affecting orchards.

Thanks for all the great info everybody. I just ended up picking out another spot for them to put it, to be safe.
