not sure if i am spelling it right but it will be close enough. Metholated seed oil. It is on the label and tells how much to mix with it. (or at least was on the last I bought)

excellent results, a guy wanted us to spray his lawn. All he had was crab, we told him there would not be much left but he said to do it. It definately got it all. We explained that it was a pricy product and passed the expense on to him. Not the fastest working chemical but great results with a little patience.

It has to be mixed with MSO or some type of sticker like a non ionic surfactant.

I have had great luck with Drive 75 if applied at the right time. I have tried it on crab that is past the 2 tiller stage and still had good luck. As always, apply per the label. It works well on crabgrass.

That is true what Mowed said. You must use a spread sticker or it wont stick to the crabgrass due to its texture.

You must also keep it agitated, it settles out fast.

I have had good luck, used it for the first time last August.

I used Acclaim and MSMA prior.

$87 a battel, not sure how far it goes.

Drive is an excellent product, relatively no phytotoxcity to most grasses and smokes crabgrass and even a decent amount of other broadleaf weeds. Even better yet you can use it on the adult crabgrass plants and still smoke them well!! Yes, its pricey but if it save you an account or two then well worth the expense.
