Anyone got suggestions to kill off hogweed, other than glyphosate? Tried a number of things and the stuff has survived, so need some advice as to what else will work, cocktails or straight. TIA

My agronomist says grazon will give it a headache but really it wants roundup. I've read that multiple cutting over 2 years forces it to use up all its root reserves then it either dies or us alot easier to kill.

I did spot spraying of hogweed in oats last year with grazon right rate but just reasonable application, it knocked it back severely but its back this year. did spot spraying in grass year before with stronger mix grazon and nearly drowned it (spray to point of runoff), it didnt grow back.
