Eliminate-D is different than Eliminate.
Unfortunately, Eliminate-D has no triclopyr.
It is similar to Three-Way.
However, it has dicamba plus the "single isomer" type of 2,4_D and MCPP. Chemically it is more pure and has less odor.
It seems odd that it lists on the label as 80 percent inert ingredients. And yet the label max rate is 1.45 ounce per thousand sqft--and--the label says that this is the maximum legal rate for 2,4-D.

Is it a clear color? Does it really have no odor?

Or am I confusing it with Gordon's low odor product--I think it is called Trimec 1000.

It's blue in color and it does have somewhat of an odor...the typical 'herbicide' smell.

Trimec 1000 claims low odor, water clear, and that...
as a "mixed amine" formulation it "resists crystallization".
http://www.pbigordon.com/professiona..._PRODUCTS=1000

I think they claim that ordinary herbicides can dry and crystallize on the leaf--and that once crystals form--no additional absorption can occur. The theory is that warm dry conditions cause the spray water to evaporate and that once that happens, no more absorption can occur. Wind and low humidity would cause this to happen quicker and low volume, perhaps quicker yet.

Does anybody have experience with this product? Anybody seen scientific data?

Riggle i have no experince with this product. But i went to class a week ago and a PBI gorden rep talked about this product.

Notice lable there are 2 typs of 2 4 D in 1000.Might be worth trying

He said it was good for deep rooted plants

Correction - Brown in color. I double checked earlier this afternoon.

Well I mowed and then sprayed yesterday afternoon.

Temps are scheduled to be in the mid 70's this week during the day and high 50's at night.

I will give it 10 days and report back.

Update - 10 days after treatment


After 10 days I see no difference whatsoever. I applied the product with a wetting agent, and I applied the product with no rain in sight for 3 days after application.

In the cooler weather, it will take longer to work. Not sure about what you used, but some products will take 2 weeks to work.
