I am in the process of clearing some land for a food plot. I have a spring roughly 100 yards from where I am clearing. My question is, is it safe to use an herbicide, such as glyphosate, on this area. Thank you for your time. God bless.



It is safe to use glyphosate 100 yards away from a source of water.  Glyphosate is neutralized when it hits the ground.  It is used closer than 100 yards to rivers by crop fields with no damage.  

Thanks for being concerned!  

Enjoy creation,
