    according to my info for momentum...it says&quot; excellent control of clovers,dandelion,plaintain, chickweed(my favorite:)) and dozens of other broadleaf weeds.university results indicate 70-85% range of broadlaf conrtol,which is comparable to sprayable herbicides&quot;<br>

    You get a 50 gal. tank for the back of your truck. Depending on nozzle and calibration, you should be able to do 200-250M with 50 gallons out of a back-pack sprayer.

    Slager, the advertising for granulars is based on theoretically ideal conditions, which you will rarely find. Only ways to practically control weeds is preemergently, liquid or granular, or post emergently with liquid. Granular post-em control is for homeowners to play with.<p>----------<br>Jim<br>North central Indiana

    ok... just got off the phone with my lesco rep...<br>he states that&quot; this new product called 'elite' momemtum works like no other weed n feed before. it has dichloro in it and that acts as a systematic form of control..no other granular weed n feed can say that. this product was only available to this lesco late last fall as its availability was hard to come by&quot;<br> i do realize that spraying is the best way to control % of weeds, but is it the best way for a small commercial guy to apply? my reasoning is <br>1-xtra hassle of mixing <br>2-calibrating correctly so you don't kill stuff<br>3-i'm going to back pack a lawn when i can granular it in about at least half the time?<br>4-less user friendly<br>5-more potential of drifting<p>so my idea is to go for granular this year and spot spray in the fall...<br>i'll let you know if your right and fer sure if your wrong...<br>thanks for all the input..NOW back to my original ? trimec and team pro..what's your thoughts of these products liquid or granular wise?<br>

    Elite refers to the granule size of Lesco's products. Let us know your results. I would probably stick with liquid, though. I'll talk to a rep and see what they say, though. I have to agree granular would be more convenient all the way around even if the results were slightly less stunning. This is my first year applying pesticides and don't want to take a risk of losing half of my customers because they are unhappy with the results.<p>While we are on the topic, though, do you usually use selective herbicides for spraying? Under what circumstances would you choose to use a non-selective? What are your favorites, and why?<p>John<br>
