    What is everyones thoughts about about Q4? I know we have dissused this in earlier post, but I can't seem to find them. Is it really a replacement of Drive and Eliminate D? I was told it is the hottest thing on the market for a "every broadleaf under the sun" selective hebicide. I am supposed to get a sample from my Lesco guy to try out, I guess we see. Let me know if you have had favorable results with this product.

    Thank you

    I found some of past posts on the search button, I did know that it was working again. So if there is any new input let me know, sorry about that.

    Q4 is a good herbicide. Our area had a lot of crabgrass break thru last season; broadleaf weeds were problematic in some lawns too. I had good results on wild violets, Crab etc.Q4 is a good, very effective product, but not cost effective at all spraying large areas of broadleaf weeds, it’s about 2.5 x’s more expensive per k.

    I've been told that the manufacturer does not put enough Dismiss (FMC nutsedge herbicide) in Q4 to kill Nutsedge with one application. It's a 2 shot deal for nutsedge control.

    Q4 is a great summertime herbicide. It will knock down crabgrass very well and still have the ability to control your broadleafs while your spot treating in the summer months. I usually have 2 back pack sprayers for the summer spot treatments, one with q4 and one with Manage. If you have just a few spots of nutsedge than I would use the q4 on it to save a trip back to the truck for the better nutsedge product, which is Manage mixed with soap.

    Or you could spike the Q4 with more Dismiss, and carry one backpack...

    Not sure what Dismiss is. If it is as expensive as Manage, then not an option. Yes it would be great to carry one back pack, q4 helps that. How much is Dismiss per K and is it as effective as Manage?

    That what we use too, works very well, dismiss is expensive but a small bottle goes a very long way, and I believe the label says it has pre-emergent sedge control as well, I think it works better than manage.
