It’s not the most efficient way of making vinegar, though, so I wouldn’t recommend it unless you really have no other choice.

What is the best time of day to spray weeds?

The most effective time in the burndown and in-crop studies was usually midday followed by midnight. When daytime opportunities are limited, night spraying could be a good option. Coles and his colleagues also found that the effectiveness of night-time spraying varied depending on the type of vegetation that was being sprayed. For example, in some areas, morning and evening spraying were equally effective, while in other areas the morning spraying had a greater effect.

The researchers speculate that this may be due to differences in the amount of time it takes for the herbicide to penetrate the vegetation, or to the fact that some plants are more resistant to herbicides than others. In any case, they , it is important to note that these results are preliminary and that more research is needed to understand the full extent of the potential benefits and risks associated with night time spraying.
