roundup pro 70% ai 1.5 to 3 oz plus turflon at brush rate per gal per 1000, I believe will kill in one app in hot weather, if not hit again one week latter at same rate!

Took me 3 app in cool weather, but only last app had turflon in mix. My first two app where 1.5 oz of 70% ai per gal per 1000.

LOL,

Ivy can be tough. Hey Bobby, drop a few pellets of spike around the base and wait and see!

But, you might have trouble reseeding this year....

(You know I was just kidding)

You might try a little 2,4-D in an ester base to heat up the mix if it doesn't just burn the foliage off.
