As I recall you have a large enough planting you may want to look into
recommendations from the various commercial spray guides. They are almost
all available on line, or for 5 or 6 bucks from the local extension. In
there, not only will you find various choices available but the universities
have also tested the products for efficacy.
>From the trades I read, a lot of commercial blueberry farms use glyphosate
under the blueberries with a shielded sprayer. Blueberries are fairly
tolerant of glyphosate, but if too much is sprayed on them, yields and vigor
Here is the Midwest Commercial Small Fruit Spray Guide (1.4MB):

what you're looking for.

I need some reccommendations for a good pre-emergent herbicide for
Blueberries and Saskatoons. The weeding of 2000 row feet is a killer. Small
plants. Glyphosate too dangerous.
I got ragweed, carpet grass, lambs quarter, crab gras, chickweed, smartweed,
U name it weed...
Thanks as usual.
Here we go again.....
