Speedzone kicks a$$ on difficult weeds. Great herbicide.

oh yeah, it aint cheap, much more than other products, but it has a in soil residual that helps along with the great instant control to really reduce a call back and jsut plain look better longer. i use it at 1.5 oz rate and kill everything i need it too, but wild violet is a lilttle tougher, need multiple apps for this one.

Speedzone works unusually fast because of the carfentrazone in the mix, (it is combined with Trimec). Its about the same on some tough weeds--like spurge, oxalis and violets, but for me it worked really fast on ground ivy, dandelions, and mallow. It is amazing on purslane--turns it black in 24 hours

Hey guys: you should check the label for the "Red" before you use it on the St. Augustine in Flordia!!!!You may be more in the red than you bargained for. Too much 2-4 D in the mix for warm season grass.

I am interested in the Atrimec results......since our climates are similar the result could be the same. Last year I sprayed twice but since it rained 40 inches I was still doing bushes more than I wanted. I am trying to figure out when to do the first application for next year. I was thinking early Feb when stuff starts coming back out. I am going all out this year and spray heavy. One results of its use is the shrubs fill out better.

I always add Quick Silver to my Three Way which is the same thing as Red Zone. What is the price difference in price as I don't remember since I checked so long ago.

Why not just tank mix Quick Silver and save money instead of using Red Zone? Just curious!
