    I know the mixing rate but the question I have is what to you normally mix at. Do you start with the high rate and then go down until it does not work. Where is a good starting point. Thanks

    i've used 6-8 oz per acre on SA. 6oz per acre works well..

    .

    Don't use a surfactant with Dismiss if you use full rate.

    Was not going to use surfectant. Just wondering when trying a new chemical do you tend to mix closer to max or min rate.

    When I've used Dismiss, it works fairly quickly. You should know within a couple of days if it's worked. I'd start at the low rate and work my way up.

    I started low and had no luck.

    One was too low. The next two at full worked but green remained low in the stalk. So I cut and sprayed a 4th time. Whatever is left I'll have to get next year.

    Man Killinga is hard to kill. The only saving grace is I got some pics.
