    What roundup you buying?
    I found Weather Max Roundup is the best
    I kill anything even Ivy

    In my mix I add fertilizer for a sticker I get a faster kill ratio

    My sign is when normal glyphosate formulations at either a 1% solution directed spray or 2 quart per acre broadcast does not effect a complete kill. I do not look for a more concentrated glyphosate or a richer mix. Alternative herbicides are used in that situation




    RoundUp tolerant weeds can cost me a lot of money if I do not handle them correctly. Using the alternative herbicides at their typical low usage rates often costs less in time and materials than a failed RoundUp application.
  3. Greendoc what can i mix with my roudup that is cheapest and most effective for controlling spreading dayfflower?

    You might want to also look at the expanded label for Dismiss. Directed applications under ornamentals are now allowed. Bye bye nutsedge, kyllinga, and broadleaf weeds.

    Almost forgot about Sepro Octane. That is labeled for use as a directed spray around ornamentals and in combination with RoundUp. My favorite directed spray around ornamentals is Reward and Ronstar.
