    Is it safe at this time to spray Momentum for clover on an irrigated football field? How long before I can put down a 1/2 lb. of SCU nitrogen after the spraying?
     
  2. Yes and same time.

    What ?-?-? scu? ?% fert?

    Why a half pound of "N"?

    Be very carefull on the rates though. Less can do more.

    Also why not use straight Confront?

    I've not used Momentum, but is it like Confront and Trimec? Both warn not to use when over 85 degrees F. Is this true for Momentum also?

  4. Many herbs warn to not use over 85 degrees, if you use lower rates you still can apply it with slim chance of burn. Takes practice.

    If you go with Confront you will fry the clover in 48 hours and it is safer at higher temps to say 90 degrees. I would not recommend using Momentum at anything above 85 degrees. You'll also want to add a sticker to the Confront to help adhere to the clover.

    You can find it at yourlocal Lesco or agricultural supplier. Note that you probably need to be licensed in your State to apply these herbicides on a commercial basis.

    Not sure if these are considered restricted use in your State. You can always go to Home Depot or Lowes and get Weed-B-Gone. Just be sure to read the labels. Also, the Confront and such are sold in 1 gallon increments which unless you have 10 acres will last you for 10 years not to mention the run almost $100/gallon.
