Anyone ever try this?

TSC: $50 for 2.5 gallons at 41%

Roundup: $110 for 1 gallon at 50%

hmmmm. just picked up some of the TSC grade stuff. I had a coupon. Anyone have anything to say about this? Good, Bad or ugly? Also, at what concentration do you think would be good to kill stuff non-selectively?

41% Gly, I buy it at the Co op . I think 54$ 2 1/2gal. I mix 3 oz per gal. My dad thinks it kills too slow, in about 10 days after spraying you can drop a match and burn it.

I use the TSC version. It was called Pronto but now Groundworks. A few yrs ago, TSC had it on sale for $19.95 per 2.5 gl jug. Told my brother who has big arceage & he bought like 15 jugs. My Doctor brother once asked me why the weeds came back after he sprayed? I said see on the label..."inert ingredients added... yes, Well fertilizer is one of those inerts added. What, are you serious?

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

I started using the Farmworks from TSC last year and have great result from it. Already has surfactant in it and usually lasts about 3 months or so depending on how much rain we get. Tried the Groundworks first and I would not waste my money on it.

I've been using round "max" I think it the name of it. I got it at TSC also. It has 48.7% Gly in it. Works great. I was using ranger pro but I like the round up better. It kills a little faster.

I have used it for getting rid of some things. I personally like it but if I say that I will get people on here saying I am promoting it or selling it. So take it for what it is and that I do like it but feel it is a little slow in getting rid of certain things. Still like it for the price as well.
