I mixed a can with momentum at 1/2 oz per gal<br>and hit some white clover in the back yard<br>about 10 days ago.<p>Today all the clover is now a pretty color of brown. No yellowing of the bluegrass.<p>Momentum is one of the few reasonalby priced selctive herbicides that can put down a wild violet in one shot.

It's good stuff. The application rate is 1.1-1.3 oz/1000 sq ft. The amount of water applied will vary with equipment used. My new sprayer treats 8,000 sq. ft./gallon of solution.<p>And it'll work quicker when the temp warms up.<br>

Evan, I'm assuming you're asking about back-pack here and that's going to depend on the sprayer used and the spray tip inserted.<p>My back-packs get about 16M per fill or about 1 gallon to 4M. Therefore I mix 20oz Amine per back-pack sprayer. (2 gallons of 3-way into my 50 gallon nurse tank.)

Like we haven't heard that before.<p>It's so funny, of the 1,487 posts stating to read the label, not one person actually has read and can relay what the label says about the product in question.
