    Since your applying glyphosate why not use Roundup Quickpro since there is no surfactant recommended? In fact if you add surfactant it can reduce the weed control.

    URI's COOP extension talked last week about the use of organics and suggested vinegar or bleach (I dont know about the bleach). A golf course on Marthas Vinyard uses water at a temp of 205 deg F mixed with some type of foaming material to hold in the heat. Within a couple hours the weeds are black, they rake them up and re-seed all in the same day. There a company that rents this machine to the golf course out of Mass and I think he said it was $6500 for the season.
