When killing common grassburs, does Eraser kill the already grown burs, preventing them from sprouting new growth?

Eraser is glyphosate, which is Roundup. It is a non selective herbicide that kills almost any live growth. It does this by attacking the weed or plant from the root system systemically. The way that these products work, the plant basically grows so fast as a result of the herbicide application, it kills itself. Whether it sprouts new growth during this phase is only a guess. Depending on temperature, application rate, etc, the speed at which the plants dies can be quickly during the summer or much slower during the fall or early spring. Applications when the temps are over 70 degrees will result in death the plant within 7-14 days. It will not kill seeds or prevent seeds from germinating. It only kills active growing plants. Ron
