    Anyone have any reviews, good or bad about the strike 3 herbicide. I have some thin spots/patches of clover and ground ivy that I'm trying to control.

    Just about all the chemical manufacturers sell a 3way amine mix. Strike 3 is just as good as the rest of them. Brand name don't mean much. Look at the AI.

    hmartin, thanks for your response...this is my first lawn, but I understand what you're suggesting. Another question I have...is there a better AI out there to control clover and ground ivy?

    I have been using strike 3 for years. There is no difference between lesco 3-way or estes triplett or strike 3. All work the same. Only difference is the lable rates translate a bit different.

    Speedzone is one of the best broadleaf herbicides on the market, but it is also the one of the most expensive. Generic 2,4-D ester or 3-way does great in MS.

    Most any broadleaf herbicide will kill clover. I don't have ground ivy at my location, so you might search "ground ivy" if you don't get the reply you need.
    Don't forget about the surfactant. It'll make the difference between fair and great control.

    Thanks guys...a friend of mine did a blanket app. to my lawn today using strike 3 and "a little liquid fertilizer". He mentioned that he would probably be back in a week and then again in the fall. From what I've been able to research on this product, it suggests that you only do 2 apps./yr. Should I tell him that I only want 2 apps., not 3? What are the cons. of more apps.?

    The law now no longer permits more than two applications per year for products containing 2,4-D. But you can switch to something containing triclopyr--works great on clover and no restrictions.

    Are there still agriliance locations in your area? Land O Lakes is the new owner of Agriliance in my area.

    I know this will sound crazy, but I get better results from 3-way. I realize that 3-way has the same AIs as Strike 3, (which is just Triplet, if you look at the EPA origination #, it is the same) anyway, AIs are the same, but somehow, 3-way works better here. I am not the only one who has noticed it, Whoop and several other applicators have too, perhaps the ph is different, perhaps one of the non- AI adjuvants is different, IDK.
