Momentum

Since things have been tight here we have been forced to use 3 way the last few broadleaf rounds. The lawns are really suffering as a result of it. Still lots of weeds. (Of course having it rain all summer long has'nt helped the weed situation either.) Lots of clover everywhere. In talking to the guys at lesco they think switching to momentum will smoke the clover. Whats your experience? Is the extra 50 bucks a jug worth it? What about trimec?

I've had good results using it on clover, usually see signs of die back in 2-3 days. Q4 works good also but is more $.

Momentum FX2 is awesome. I use it strictly. At 1.5oz/gallon it will take out nutsedge too.

Are you using the Three-Way at the maximum rate? Try that, and be sure to add a surfactant. Use dish soap if the cost is a problem--8 ounces per hundred gallons works nice. Look carefully at the hard to wet weeds--you will see how it coats the weeds better. Double check your calibration--nothing works if you are not using enough.

Three-Way will smoke clover when used at the correct rate. Using a good spreader sticker, not soap will help on harder to kill weeds. If you are at JDL just use Three-Way with the spreader sticker they sell and you should have no problem. I myself use a lot of both Momentum Fx2 and Three-Way. They both kill clover with no problem. Momentum is about twice the price per K when compared to three-way. Is it worth it, on ground ivy and it is.
