clover vs herbicides

I tested five herbicides against clover. I used hand sprayers. I tried to use the label rate, but the method is approximate. After 48 hours, I found that in my judgment Speedzone was most effective, T-Zone was second, followed by a three-way and then Quicksilver and Drive. I will take another close look tomorrow.

Black medic was included in the T-Zone, Quicksilver, and Drive micro plots.

How does this compare to your experience?

clover

Why didn't you include Quincept or Escalade? Quincept has quinclorac, 2,4-D and dicamba all three of which are very good on clover (plus it controls small and big, but not medium) crab; Escalade has fluroxypyr instead of quinclorac and in my experience is the best thing ever for clover control.

I agree with Escalade for clover, but why not a "sticker"? Clover, medic, wild violet etc. are so stinking waxy that it's hard to get good penetration before the product simply rolls off or is held in suspension til evaporation without absorption.

I think active ingredient may not be showing it's true potential on these tests but maybe more so the carrier differences. Mix in your favorite spreader sticker and see if your results vary drastically .

I have had good luck killing clovers with lesco 3 way which is 2, 4-d. Lesco momentum will kill it 100%.

I did include spreader sticker. I use 3 ml per quart. That is about .4 percent.

Anything with Tryclopyr. When spot spraying I brush my foot across to get some under the leaves.

On our warm season grasses down here, the Celsius is working great on the clover. Don't try it on the fescue, though

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

Had a centipede yard overtaken with flowering clover. Weed free zone decimated it within two weeks with one thorough app.
