I just wrote that down in the notes of my spray log to try next fall/winter. Too warm now

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

up north 3 way doesnt work when its cold on a lot of weeds up here. keep in mind in the spring we are dealing with winter annuals as well, we might be 50's during the day but dropping into the 30's at night in early April. once the day temps are 70 i switch back away from ester to regular three way

Anyone try tank-mixing Dimension 2EW with Defender for early-spring broadleaf control? Dow claims good results in temperatures too cool for even most esters.

3-way (amine) is inexpensive, but will not effectively kill hard-to-kill weeds. ($20.00 per gallon)
Chaser (ester) contains 34.4 % 2,4D and 16.5 % Triclopyr. ($56.00 per gallon)

Most other "heavy duty herbicides" only have 5 or 6 % Triclopyr. (math skills required)

LI 700 ? Blend of 2 herbicides? Send me a PM if you want to know what we do to kill difficult weeds while minimizing material costs.

Additional sticker with 3 way? It's how we do it.

Good point ef. We like LI 700 cuz it buffers our extremely high pH water and allows the herbicide to penetrate (weed) leaf tissue. But I still like triclopyr ester >> it's a weed hater.

I hear imprellis works wonders!

jk jk. I am a fan of escalade 2 for second round. It has a broad spectrum and has a sticker surfactant included. a little pricey. but worth it IMO. less spot spraying later on.
