    Can anyone explain to me why Lesco Three Way is labeled for Wild Onion and Wild Garlic and Momentum is not?

    According to lesco and the literature I have from NC State, 2-4D is the weapon of choice.
    However, Momentum contains a higher percentage of 2-4D yet is't labeled for those pests.

    Thanks in advance.

    Momentum works best at 80 degrees and above, wild onion is active NOW, three way works best NOW so use it.

    Ray,
    I'm not referring to Three Way Ester II which I am currently using.
    I am referring to Three Way Selective, the Amine formulation.
    Momentum is also an Amine formulation, therefore my question stands.

    the lack of dicamba and mcpp. this is what lacks in momentum that 3-way has. this is where you will get good onion control.
    Ray is also right about the temps too.
    Igroturf.
