After looking the ingredients up on Pesticide Info it looks like they have replaced the 2,4-d with MCPA. I have never used it but will look at it because it will allow me ti use a herbicide without going over the 2,4-d limits per acre our state has enacted.

Battleship III is the only thing that I have found effective on Wild Violets in my area. Great on ground ivy too along with the easy to control clover and dandelions etc... However it is pretty volatile and a bit nasty spraying after awhile. I will be targeting wild violet with it, other than that I am looking for a solid low odor broadleaf herbicide formula for the bulk of my spraying.

You looked up BAttleship, not Battleship III. I am sure Battleship has been pulled.

It isn't labeled for wild violets (viola papalionacea) .... how effective is it on them?

It contains triclopyr which is the only thing I have found effective on Wild Violet. Best control I have found and I have tried many other three ways.

Quicksilver "Carfentrenzone" works great on wild violets.

How does quicksilver compare pricewise with battleshipIII? Battleship III is pretty cheap.

Like everything else that WORKS, it is prohibited on Long Island. :cry:
