MHWC, I could not find reference to Portrait or Wipeout on EPRII 4th Qrtr '99 listings. Confront is a combo of triclopyr + clopyralid from DowAgro that is a great control for clover, and one of the most dependable for violets. Two products we have had terrific broadbased results with are Riverdale's Millenium Ultra (2,4-D, clopyralid, & dicamba) and Cool Power (ester combo: MCPA, dicamba, clopyralid). The control of these two is as good as tank mixes of Confront and 2,4-D based products in the past, but those mixes required critical measurement. Confront will run in the range of $100/gal, but is a low mix rate of 1/2 oz/gal. Cool Power and Millenium Ultra will run about $120 for 2½ gal.<p>I assume you are looking for turf broadleaf preemergents. If you are, then have the vasoline ready. However, it is sensible for some operators to use it. Depends on what your market is. They are mostly used by lawn care operators in high end markets. We have used Ronstar (NOT LABELED for residental turf) and Gallery is also available. Gallery has a broader spectrum of coverage. Don't know current pricing on these.<p>If you are only doing lawn care, the broadleaf preemergents may be useful. But if you are full maintenance, you'll be at the site every week, so you can keep up with any weed outbreaks.<p>Jim
