Momentum vs Trimec 992

Hey guys give me your opinion on what would be the better of the two for broadleaf weeds. I need to make sure that it is gonna be strong enough to knock out the violets. I have never used either of these product and would like your opinion on them, or if you have any other suggestions. Thanks

992 is about half the cost of Momentum and performs accordingly. For your violets, Momentum will work much better.

If you're controlling ONLY violets and other difficult to control weeds, Confront may be a better option.

I dont think violets are listed in the label of Momentum. It turns them yellow but I go back through and spot treat with Confront.

VIOLETS

I GET GOOD CONTROL OF VIOLETS USING 3-WAY WEED
CONTROL IF YOU USE THE MAXIMUM RATE AND FOLLOW
UP ONCE OR TWICE WITH A LV BACKPACK. WE USED TO
USE TURFLON AT TRU-GREEN AND IT DID VERY WELL,
BUT WAS DANGEROUS IN WARM WEATHER. VIOLETS HAVE
A WAXY COATING THAT REPELS WATER SO MOST OF THE
ACTION IS THROUGH THE ROOTS.
