    The weather around here tomorrow is going to be 92 and humid. I was hoping to do some treatments tom mornign and be done by 10. I am looking for some feedback.

    When it's hot & humid, Drive works fast if it does not get rained on for four hours or so. Trust me, I know, cuz we've seen results shortly after rainfall. We always use a spreader/sticker with it. Usually LI-700 (UAP). We've been using alot of it lately.

    My rule has always been if temps get over 85 with full sun, or 90 and cloudy, then the only chemical you should apply is water. That's old school, as newer formulations are alot more heat tolerant, but better safe than sorry

    Read the label. Drive has no temperature constraints. However, if you're mixing it with a spreader sticker or broadleaf herbicide, you're back to the traditional 80-85 degrees rule.
