Yes, decent results with them. Heavy areas I go over twice (Permagreen). In any event, way better results then say 3way.

This was in close to 90 degree temps.

I got mixed results with T-Zone, but the cost was the turnoff for me.

Spreader sticker is your friend with these tougher weeds.

I found that spreader sticker was costly in the skid sprayer. But cheap in hand sprayers and back packs, as a spot spray. Labor and time consumed is the main cost in spot spraying.
Only problem is: the silicone surfactants are difficult to measure in spot sprayers because you don't need much. For the silicone surfactants you use about one-tenth of one percent. Say around a tenth of an ounce per gallon in a hand sprayer. Ten cents.
Which is good because silicone surfactants cost about a dollar an ounce.

How do you measure small quantities?

I used T-Zone on a dandelion and it worked very well at about 7 days later. I also used T-Zone on new grass seed planted in pots when the new grass was about an inch high. So far only slight injury to new grass. Stay tuned.

All you have to do is get the photo on your computer

right click on it and click go to edit

than go up to the top and go to image and than to resize make it small enough so you can see the hole photo on your computer screen

some times you have to resize it 2 times

I read on the label only apply TZone up to eighty five degrees F. Hotter than that, the ester Triclopyr will volatize.

i have had issues despite spreader/.sticker with surge killing oxalis for the most part. kinda pisses me off, but it is only when dry, after a rain the kill is great, but in a slight drought or more forget it, it burns the top and then regrows. i have not found a weed control that works super in slight drought conditions yet.

any thoughts?>
