Momentum Does not seem to be working ?

Hey,

Is it just my momentum or maybe the weather making it really challenging to control weeds this season ??? I was thinking of changing to Confront , BUt from doing a search it seems confront is basically in momentum, So then why is it not working effectively.. ?????

.75 oz per gallon kills clover in 3 days here in NC, not sure why it would be different.

I use the label rate, and it is not working on most weeds ? Clover , dandelions, and other braodleafs, crab grass, etc... It worked last year, but its seems it not doing nada this year ? could the weeds be getting imune to it ?? I just applied some last week, but have sprayed and done granular too many times this year.. Im losing money on it and my lawns are looking nasty...on some lawns I'm on my 4th application....
