    Whats wrong with 2,4d? My favorite selective herbicide on the market is Momentom made my leso. It contains 2,4d and confront so it controls an extremly wide range of weeds.

    I've use Confront with good results. No odor, but it does not knock down dandelions as fast a 2-4-d.

    trimec 959 is D-Free. don't knock down weeds as fast as D-products. usually takes 10-14 days to see results. from past experience i would prefer 2-4 d.customers would like to see quiker results than what d-free products provide. i've had to make numerous service call to go back & retreat even though weeds were dying, because of customer perception is weeds were still there.if you use D-free,better educate your customers about how the product works and you may make trips back out to retreat for no reason.

    We use Battleship have no complaints. Except lady who comes out every time she is home and points out every weed (usualy 1 or 2 in whole lawn.
