Broom Sage

Zone 38506; Cookeville TN | Anonymous added on August 23, 2018 | Answered

I want a liwuod solution high on Phosphorus that I can spray on this stuff with my tank sprayer and kill it or at least thin it out. I have 5 acres of it that I want to kill, but I want to keep my grass. Is there a product I can buy or can I make a home remedy to do the job.

I would also suggest you talk with your County Extension Office. They may have some suggestions for control of Broom Sage, specific to your region.
