I'm wondering what others do for managing wild parsnip. I have some large sites where hand pulling would not be a very effective option. We have used a glyphosate mix in the past but didn't get very good results. I have read MNFI/DNR's BMP and their herbicide suggestion is glyphosate. Does anyone else do anything different?

I have used glyphosate in the past, but timing is important--it's most effective in early season, before the 2nd year plants bolt.  It's easy to target the flowering adults, but that's not very effective--2nd years I've just cut the seed heads to prevent spread.
