    For all of you guys that don't buy bulk.....


    Tractor Supply is having a sale from May 4th to May 8th on their Gordons Pronto 41% Glysophate. It's 29.99 for a 2.5 gallon jug. Where i'm at the cheapest we could get it from our suppliers was right at 55.00 for the same 41% mix so I figured i'd mention it....


    Using at a medium rate makes it come out to right at 30 cents a gallon sprayable.

    The link states "49.99" ea but that is still a great deal anyway.

  6. My lesco had it for 39.99 for 2.5 last summer and I snagged 4 of them. That is an even better price though. I would def grab a few at that price.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I remember just 3 years ago paying well over $120, two years ago, $85 (so I bought 2). Now I guess I better stock up. What is the shelf life, anyone know?

    I don't know but I'm using some Grass weed killer (kills weeds not grass) by Ortho that's dated 2006
    and the stuff appears to still work just dandy.

    Personally, I think in its concentrated form, so long it is stored indoors someplace
    even an outdoor shed but out of the sun and the worst of the weather,
    the stuff would probably hold 10-20 years but don't quote me on that.
    I keep mine underneath my house and I would think 4-5 years no problem.

    So...
    I can pretty safely say two years for sure, probably up to at least 5 and maybe a whole lot longer.
    But it does hold for some time, worst case scenario with Gly it just stops working.

    Once it's mixed that's another story as well.

    Yeah I've paid $100 a gallon for 50% before and I thought that was a fair deal lol
