    I cant seem to kill this stuff. I'm using par III which is mecoprop, 2,4-d and dicamba at the recomended levels. I have sprayed and sprayed again and the best that I seem to get is a few burnt leaves and thats it. Its really starting to take over a couple yards but I just cant kill it. Any suggestions? Being in Canada, I cant get a lot of the stuff that most of you guys are using so if its not to much of a hassle, active ingredients would be very helpfull.

    Confront should do the job with a little non ionic surfactant, assuming you are licensed, of course. Neal

    Just for the record I have been ahving he same problem here in VA with woodsorrel using Millenium Ultra at the labelled rate with or without sticker, it doesn't seem to matter, I have had to switch chemicals to control it.

    Dow AgroSciences LLC makes Confront. I have had good results w/ Confront and Speedzone when treating Oxalis.
