What products are you guys using in your glyphosate for get faster results?

Anyone using Scythe and does it do the trick or is there something else better and cheaper?

Depends on where its being sprayed. Sometimes I mix triplet with it but only if its not being applied near landscape plants. If its located within desirable plants then I use Quick Pro.

Mix prosecutor with surfactant and diquat. I don't have my spray log with me but i believe 1.5oz per gallon of prosecutor; .25 oz 90/10 surfactant per gallon; and .10z per gallon diquat. Have very good kill and fast. Of course that is spot spray.

Been pricing scythe out and at 4 oz, its going to cost me 2 bucks per gallon. I think a 3 way with my mix will give my good results and way cheaper and/or I will just buy quick pro.

To kill brush and vines, I use Glyphosate + Triclopyr. I use Glyphosate + Surfactant only in any ornamental beds.

That looks like a good price. Best price I can get is from "Do your own pest control" at .53 cents (.75 oz) plus gly + sticker. Will have to check out my gly pricing. Thanks for all your advice.

But the labels says ".75 oz per gallon of water".
