Whats the best sticker

Hey all,
I think thats what you call it, sticker prevents drift?

I picked up a bottle of Bonide Turbo Spreader Sticker on my last visit to Southern States as thats the only thing they had. I used it last week and notices a big difference when I sprayed; could actually see the ground was wet where I sprayed and never could before.

Upon closer examination on the side of the bottle (No Label) I see it mentions better distribution to the foliage better and briefly talks about "reduce leaching and product waste" which I assume is drift?

Is this what I need to control drift and is there anything better you all recommend?

Upon closer examination on the side of the bottle (No Label) see the link YOU posted below to the LABELI see it mentions better distribution to the foliage better and briefly talks about "reduce leaching and product waste" which I assume is drift?ummm leaching is not drift....

Is this what I need to control drift and is there anything better you all recommend?spreader sticker will not control drift, what I recommend is learn what you are doing.....

http://www.norganics.com/label/turbospreader.pdfThis is one for the record...you stated above the bottle has no label but then post a link to the label
see above comments.

The stuff is like a strong detergent. It wets the weeds better--thereby reducing runoff. Helpful if you have weeds that are waxy or hairy or otherwise hard to wet--like clover. There are many other similar products.

Or weeds like nutsedge which I know I'm going to have

Pre-ems won't take care of the nutsedge so I know I'm going to have to spray for that.

Thanks guys, I'll look into this

Is LT700 better than lesco spreader sticker? Is it the same kind of sticker? Is it ionic or non-ionic?

sticker-and a drift product a seperate- spreader sticker gives you better coverage on the weeds- a drift product will tighten up the pattern to reduce drift from target-tried a few drift products this spring and had problems with it binding to the pre-emergent, broadleaf mix,so I say no to the drift product and would use a larger spray tip, if a little windy;

we have a lot of nutsedge here and crop oil is good when temps are a little warmer and the cost per k is half compared to sticker
