Very best control of clover is Confront, combo of triclopyr and clopyralid. Any other combo with these ingredients, like Momentum, or even one of them, will be effective on clover. 2,4-D will work, but count on two apps within a 2 week period to efrfectively eliminate it with 2,4-D alone.

I also prefer Momentum for clover control. Gives it that "one two punch"!

Momentum is a Lesco trade name, available at any Lesco outlet, or by phone order. See lesco info at http://www.lesco.com/ .

Many other products out there. Suggest you contact regional or state lawn care association, or your state extension office, for direction to industry suppliers. Local consumer sources will usually not have the products used in the trade. Consumer lines are usually highly diluted, to control the flow of chemicals into the environment; also much more expensive for amount of active ingredient.

And if you are using these products in your work for hire, you need to be licensed by your state to offer this service for sale.

In NY Momentum is also a restricted use product(need license to purchase it). Good luck, it's a great product, I use it for most of our broadleaf treatments.
