There are at least 2 generic quinclorac 75DF products out there...

Eject 75DF made by Advan
Quinstar made by Albaugh

Ask your vendors about them if you don't want to switch to XLR8.

I think Quali-Pro makes one as well.

when i did my calculations last year xlr8 was the same or close to the same price as the dry when you took into consideration mix rates. I actually really like the new liquid formulation, easier to measure and easier to mix, same results.

Hm, have to see if the price is cheaper then what I paid per lb of Drive 75

I just got two pounds last week, didn't cost me a dime. Nothing was said about it being discontinued.

BASF doesn;t want to try and compete with the generics, so they're not going to make the DF anymore. The XLR8 was made mostly for the perma green users. Mixing a lb of Drive into 11 gallons of water is a job, and the XLR8 is supposed to work alot faster too. I've been told that there is still a good amount of the 75DF in stock at various dealers, but once it's gone, it's just generics and the XLR8.

if you read the booklet you are also supposed to buy an oil to mix with the xlr8 we just got our oil in yesterday

This is true but the new Xl is not much more $$$ then the old 75..

All wettable powder pesticides are being discontinued is my understanding. Not just drive.

Even acephate now has to be created in a dispersable(sp) granule.

They can sell whats on the shelf, and that's it.

Wdg sucks especially drive 75. i hated mising it as it would have hits and misses despite how well i thought i mixed it. i have not used xlr8 but would consider it maybe, but others are working for me as the way we are treating now

xlr8 works great. you can see results the next day, give it a week and the weeds are done.

Hey guys, You may want to look at Nufarm products. They offer a Quinclorac 75DF as well. They also offer a chemical called Quincept, which is a three way of Quinclorac,2-4D, and Dicamba. I do not have any experiences with these chemicals, just like you I have always used Drive. Good Luck.

Drive was discontinued last Fall and during the winter, we received our 1st shipment of Drive XLR8. Last month, we got an e-mail from JDL Corporate offices stating that the DRIVE 75 is back into production. We got our 1st shipment of that about two weeks ago and now have plenty in stock.
