    I need some help. I am trying to get some wild strawberries out of a fescue lawn. I'm wondering if anyone has used "Speed Zone" with any luck, and if you have, what mixture rate?

    I know that straight 2-4-D has a little struggle with strawberries and wild violet. So is this a good option? Thanks, Tony

    Yes I'm licensed. Thanks, Tony

    Speedzone works fantastic on wild violets -- better than anything else I've tried. Actaully, I have been making "my own" sppedzone by combining Quicksilver and Strike Three together. Same active ingredients. I apply mixture at .9ml of quicksilver (jsut afew drops) and 1.1 oz of Strike Three per 1000 ft.

    For speedzone -- jsut look at the label. Feel free to go with maximum rate -- I have never seen it burn turf at label rates -- unless its very hot out 80+

    I have experimented with using a mix similar to Hamons. Last fall I used Quicksilver with Lesco Three-Way at the same rate as above. It worked very well on the wild violets and other weeds I treated.

    Speedzone is excellent for a broad range of weeds. I mix at 1oz per gal. If you don't have a huge area just put 4 oz in a backpack sprayer to 4 gals and go to town. The stuff has made me and my customers a believer. Its not the cheapest but then niether am I.
