    No weeds were available; tomatoes were grown from seed indoors, until about 5 weeks old. Four herbicides and combinations of the herbicides were compared: a three-way (3W)[Ace Hardware], Quicksilver (Q), T-Zone (TZ) and Speedzone (SZ). An untreated control was included (UTC). Mix was label rate assuming 0.25 gals per thousand sqft. Rate data is approximate, naturally. One squirt from a squirt bottle, (about 1/40th of an ounce) was applied. For combination treatments, the second herbicide was applied in the same way. A second squirt was applied, if the treatment was just a double rate of the same herbicide.
    Certain combinations had to be omitted as there were not enough plants to test every combination.

    I hate to blow your cool, BUT Tomatoes are very susceptible to any and all most all Pesticide including Insecticides.
