    Is this Mallow ? If so what gets rid of it. will the broad leaf application take care of this or do you need to target this specifically?

    Would that be henbit?

    If so, most broadleaf "stuff" will kill it.

    It scares me how many people are out there spraying stuff and do not even know what they are spraying.
    If they can't ID the "weed", is it really safe to assume that they know the proper way to apply the "stuff" they are buying and spraying?

    You are correct and 2,4-D will kill it over the top.
