    Are the active ingredients in Three-Way and Eliminate Lo
    about the same? Is something else in eliminate that makes
    it better to use in the Perma Green then Three-Way?

    I ended up looking at the label last night because this really threw me off. Nowhere does it say you can't use a PG. There are no products that I am aware of that are illegal to spray with certain equipment that I know of!

    It does recommend using 40-80 gallons/acre in the comments for best control but that is a CYA statment, but if you look at Gly it tells you to use 20 gallon/acre for best results, and I use 5 gal/ac.

    When looking at the label as far as application....you just need to make sure you use the AI as inteneded and at the correct rate/area.

    There ar some equipment that have been excluded for use with some herbicides. Crop dusters, using irrigation equipment for broadcasting certain herbicides,etc... I am not a lawyer. All I know is what I read on the label. All I want to do is try to cover my a$$.

    Rodney,
    Thanks for the PM. I could be totally off base. I guess labels to an extent are open to interpretation by the individual. What kind of Pre emergence do you use in your PG? Do you spray or apply granular bonded with pre-emergence

    You are correct that there are some products that can't be applied by certain equipment such as crop dusters and irriagation....but they would be stated on the label if they weren't supposed to be used..

    I was talking about they will not specify what equipment can and can't be used (ride-on etc).

    My point is that nowhere on the label does it say I can't apply with a "PG" or use the product with low volume.

    It label just states "Under normal application use 40-80 gallon of water pre acre or 1-2 gallon/1000 sq ft"

    That isn't a must...it is just a recommendation under the comments.

    I see where you are coming from , but I am sure we are all fine for using it in a PG!

    Look guys...I wasn't trying to start an argument. I read it as a label instruction not a "It is suggested that you" or a "It works best if you" type thing. I haven't seen a whole lot of response from what I said so I get the feeling there are quite a few who are unsure.To each their own...

    Labels are just that! As long as you follow the "rules" you are fine! They can't print everything on there! If they say you must do something then you must. But it if doesn't say something then it is definilty left to interpretation!

    I will make a phone call tomorrow and find out!

    I have been using 19-0-6 Dimension...but when I use liquid I have used Pre M.
