    Guys , any suggestion on how to clear approximately 2ha. land of grass, cogon , talahib ?
    Grasscutter would be too expensive ang bilis tumubo ulit ng damo
    I'm thinking of a herbicide

    Ang alam ko may naghaharvest nyan. Ginagawang materials sa handicraft. They would happily harvest it for you for free baka ikaw pa bayaran nila.

    herbicide will work - I just can't remember the name. Please no burning - baka hindi macontrol and it would start a brushfire and spread to other properties. This is happened to me - tamad yung kapit bahay magclearing so he just burned it ehhh lumakas yung hangin at lumipat sa amin. :steamed:

    Ahhhh hindi kakainin ng baka or kambing ang cogon :)

    PERO what will you do after? Kasi kahit anong gamitin mo babalik talaga yan. The best is clear it then plant something kahit mga kakawate or cover crop (mga crawling plants) these are all legumes and would help the soil also. BTW, cogon is a sign of acidic soil so you might want to consider that when you start planting.

    hehe I cant use livestock or plant err plants
    I'm subdividing it then selling it , some houses are already being built
    A week of rain ,taas ulit ng damo
    I'm wondering if herbicide would be cheaper than having the grass/weeds cut every few weeks

    Ahhh ok yup effective yung herbicide and cheaper nga. You would need a sprayer lang and some protective outfit like boots and face mask. You would have to make sure you spray it well sa may root area kaya importante ang boots - pati kuko ng tiga spray patay :)

    I have the same problem in a property that is vacant. I tried clearing it last summer but to no avail kasi mataas na naman ang talahib, dami pang makahiya kaya ayaw tambayan ng mga aso ko. I tried to borrow kambing from friends pero ayaw kainin yung talahib at pumanghi lang. LOL.
