I normally mix 80/20 with my 3-way or msm mix. Anyone found that atrazine works as a decent sticker? I've got some extra msm and 3way and will use mixed with atrazine for my last round to clean up any escaping broadleaf weeds.

Just a thought of the thickness of atrazine and the fact that my sprayer gets a white film on it. Thought it might save the mixing and 1 cent/k cost of 80/20 haha.

For the msm users I'm assuming everyone is getting great control of garlic and broadleafs at the 1/3-1/2 oz per acre rate? Can you tell a difference between the high end and low end?

For susceptible weeds, the higher you go the more soil residual and injury to the grass you get. At 1/4-1/3 oz, most warm season grasses go through it with minimal yellowing or stunting.

If I remember correctly .50+ is the rate for garlic. Maybe the rate can be lower if combined with other products as some have suggested?

I use 1 oz/acre to control summer weeds. My primary targets when used in the summer are Bahiagrass, Virginia Buttonweed and Foxtail. I use .66 oz/ acre in the Fall primarily for wild onion/garlic.

Its been a while since I've read the label but I believe max use rate is 1.33oz/acre.
