    I bought a used z spray this spring and used Speed zone this spring with good results. Has anyone had success with Quick silver and 3 way putting down .33g/1000 sq?

    I have heard some pretty amazing stories about three way and Quicksilver. As long as you get your rate correct, you should be in good shape.

    I've used quicksilver with horsepower at low end and have had decent results over the past few years, especially with ground ivys and clover.

    IMHO Quicksilver works better at lower volumes per thousand rate. It fact over 2 gallons per thousand it doesn't work.

    Here's what I recommed and have had EXCELLENT success.

    1/2 oz / acre of Quicksilver & 1.3 oz 3way per 1000

    If you put more than 1/2 oz per acre of Quicksilver you take a chance of the plant dying back before the 3way can get into the plant and kill the weed.
