    Seems the TDA is picking up things a notch around here for sure. I had a woman inspector and she sounded like she was way too over loaded with area coverages.

    In Arkansas you have until your stock runs out. I had 20 gallons left from year before.
    We have until 2013 to liquidate it...........and the product is still sold under a new label for golf course, right of way, and certain crop situations. Farmer's don't use it much for the crop as they use it for ditches,etc. I did not want to forget about the turf grower, they can still use it for their production. We as commercial and residential sprayers have to use it wisely in certain situations, however by the end of the year...........it needs to be away from the truck. Period.!!
    I don't care if you have the old or new labeled product......it needs to be gone or you can face fines and or license cancellations.

    Seems to me that would lead to people over using it, or dumping it.

    The way I understand it in Texas is that we can use the old label untill it is depleated. I guess I will have to double check. I guess it really depends on what the EPA says it has to be used by
