    Use a ester formulation on c.charlie and other hard to control b.leaves.

    Trimec, Three way, Triplet , Mec amine D, Strikeforce are the same stuff. Trimec has several formulations now that have differing percentages of Active Ingredient, some have additives like MSMA but they are all the same otherwise.

    Many people are having good success by using Trimec or similar products at a low rate and adding Quicksilver, a new, fast acting and very successful broadleaf weed control. It is working very well on clover, ground ivy and violets.

    Be careful with Quicksilver , though, 1 to 2 oz. per acre with triplet!

    You use an eyedropper for hand sprayers!

    Very true! You have to be very careful with Quicksilver. I make my own Speedzone though. I put 3.3 oz Quicksiver in with any 2.5 gallon jug of Trimec and BAMM!....Dy-no-mite in a bottle on those hard to control broadleaf weeds. Speedzone has .62% Carfentrazone-ethly...3.3oz.

    I don't see the point in buying quicksilver. I can buy speedzone for about the same price as quicksilver. Speedzone: $135 for 2.5 gallons, covers 320k at 1 oz per k. Quicksilver: $125 for 8 ounces, covers 270k at lowest rate of 1.3 oz acre plus you must add the cost of the herbicide you mix it with. Other than to get away from dicamba why would you buy quicksilver? Maybe there is something I am overlooking.
