    Just follow the instructions on the label and their shouldn't be any adverse effects to the grass? I had heard that you can't apply the liquid after day time high's approuch or exceed 90 degree's. Is that a myth or should that be a concern? Thanks in advance.

    I don't think you will dent the clover with 2-4,D, Confront would be the ticket if you still have registration in your state. 3/4 oz. 1000/sq. ft., will do a great job. We lost the product in Washington because it showed up in compost that was used in a couple greenhouses and some plants were damaged. So the state pulled the reg. for all residential and commercial use. Probably the best clover herb. ever...a great loss to our industry here. Anyway, read and follow the label. Hot weather is poor weed control weather for lots of reasons. Neal
  5. Momentum does a good job on Clover, so does SpeedZone. Speedzone is labeled for use up to 90 degree's. Add some sticker to the mix for better results.

    I agree on the Momentum. I use it on all my accounts and it works awesome. It is a little pricey though.....
    good luck

    I have great luck with quicksilver and stroke three mixed for clover. MUST add a good non-ionic surfactant to propoelry deal with clover -- it's wzxy leaves amke control difficult!

    I use par III. There is 2,4-d, mecoprop and dicamba in there. Always works good for me without any extra stickers.
