    "Confront"? Hasn't that been outlawed on home turf?

    What percent slow-release nitrogen is present?
    What is the percent dithiopyr?

    I've never heard of a pre emergent being mixed with Confront before. Generally you throw your pre emergent heavy along edges which is often close to existing beds with plants. I wouldn't want to be throwing a product in there with such strong post emergent control like Confront. I have to think you could do quite a bit of damage pretty quick.

    Oh, I see now. Dow which manufactures Confront--changed the formula--dropping out chlorpyrilid and substituting fluoroxypyr.
    Now its legal.

    So I wonder if the old confront (Triclopyr and chlopyralid) is still available or has it been replaced to market for residential use again

    It is and no it's not and never will be. Not for residential or ornamental turf anyhow.

    That Pro Scapes with all those goodies looks like wicked junk.

    What good would a granular post emergent like Confront do? Seems like a waste of money....

    We've been using it all spring so far, on about 30 properties, It looks like it's going to be pretty good. This is my first season doing any spring application. So far we have only had one property with any dandelion issues after the fact. Not really sure what's happened there either.
