Treating White Clover with THREE-WAY™ ESTER II

Hey guys,
First time posting. New to my this forum,new to my area (Charlotte), but not new to turf. I picked up a commercial account with 3A of mostly Tall Fescue and spots of Common Bermuda littered with clover. Obviously its been malnourished turf and kept pretty moist. Anyhow. I have used forms of three way lots of times but want to know how you think I'll do spraying in the winter. Air temps have been cool from 42/24 - 60/37 but clover looks healthy as ever. I know when the best time to treat is but Client wants it out yesterday. I'm pretty sure I'll get a decent kill with high rate plus sticker but label rec doesn't say anything about winter. I'm going to go ahead and treat it just want some reassurance that I'm not wasting time & material. I'm sure I'll have to come back for a seconday app just hoping to get most of it now.

You need something with triclopyr...AND...Three Ester II includes it in the formula. You should be good. Include nonionic surfactant to help wet the clover leaves which shed water--prevent run-off.


Slow when cold--fast when hot. Most herbicides are temperature dependent.
Calibrate carefully. Apply it at the maximum rate. Try to hit between 100 and 110 percent of your goal rate.

My local chemical guy recommended 4 Speed XT for henbit and clover. I applied some about 3 weeks ago with good results. It contains triclopyr.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
