Revolver

Anyone know who would stock a smaller quanity of Revolver than a quart?
I don't mind the price but hate to let that much die a slow death from non-use.
It's labeled to mix with Celsius to control Dallisgrass in St. Augustine. Strange how Revolver will kill centipede. Well, not really, urine almost kills it.
Thanks

Sorry friend. The word that I got from Bayer when they were in Hawaii for a CPS/Agrium function recently was that the quarts were being phased out of production for a container size designed to cover 5 acres at the max rate. I think that is like 2 liter or over a half gallon. Best you grab a quart while you can.

That comes out to 2.5 liter according to my math. Agency pricing makes that over $500 per container. The other thing about the new Revolver is that it is going to be reformulated to be much thinner. Have you noticed how the old Revolver looked and poured like cold gravy. Absolute hell to measure.

Yes, new revolver will only be in the 2 liter size. I just bought a quart of the older formula. Probably will never use all of it on the small spots of Dallisgrass in St. Augustine on Yard #3. But making the client happy is very important also. Anyone want to buy a half bottle?

If you keep it in a place that does not get too hot or freezes, it ought to be ok for a while. The wizards at Bayer had quite a job to do. It is very hard to formulate a liquid sulfonylurea herbicide so that it works and does not break down in the bottle.
