    Just started a new business in the north east. Got some FX 2 from a fellow landscaper. Label was ripped off, and I am not sure about the application rate. Need help! Everyone saids that this is the best bang for your buck.

    I don't get how it could be heavily faded. If it was stored in a locked storage locker, cabinet, storage unit, it wouldn't have been out in the sun enough to get faded.

    Before it was ripped off, now it's heavily faded.

    I realize what I'm dealing with here, but if you're going to apply it:

    A) hope the state's department of ag doesn't want to see the original container

    B) good luck to you that it's actually fx2.

    If I was were you and spraying this stuff or whatever it is in the container. If a state ag guy would stop you before or after you sprayed this stuff and you can read how much of it goes in the tank then you would be getting a fine. The stuff in the container could be round up for all you know and the container could be three years old. I always and I mean always buy my own chemicals and fertilizer. I dont know call me a stickler on this but its my and not your friends license from your state.

    1.1 to 1.5 oz/k - momentum fx2 label rate if this is indeed fx2.

    I had a fellow landscaper give me three jugs of spreader sticker a few years ago. I went to fill a 2 qt cup with some out of one of the 2.5's and it was frigging waste oil from their mowers.


    true story.

    One of my friends found what looked to be a gallon of Paraquat Cl made by Chevron Chemical, produced in the 1970's. Thought I scored. Measured out a quart, turned out to be waste oil. What a damned mess in the sprayer. Good thing this was a bare ground mix for a nursery.
