    I can not find Turflon any help would be great. I have call Lesco and the local farm store any other ideas. I would like to mix it with Fusilade II to control bermudagrass in zoysiagrass.

    There are some online chem suppliers that sell it. It is pretty expensive, as it comes in a 2.5 gal jug from Dow. Usually about $350

    You may have some luck finding a generic version in a smaller bottle, if you don't need that much. (Triclopyr ester)

    Southern States Co-Ops around here have the Hi-Yield brand which you can get in a pint size that isn't too pricey (especially relative to the Fusillade).

    Amazon has a pint for $50.

    What is the name of the Hi-Yield and is it the same %?

    Ortho has 8 percent triclopyr as Ortho Chickweed, Clover, Oxalis Killer. Their Poison ivy Killer is about the same. As is Ortho Brush B Gone.

    I buy the Turflon Ester in he Hi-Yield brand as well. Pint for about $35 I think... From a local nursery/garden center. I'd have to shuffle out to the shop to see what the % of ai. it is.

    I mix mine with Acclaim, and providing I get the rate just right, it works awesome on bermuda in fescue. I found that the high rate is the way to go, and dosn't seem to damage the cool season turf.

    I just found a product also named turflon ester. It is from a California company called Monterey. It has the same exact ingredients as the turflon ester of dowagrosciences. Way cheaper though. You can get it off amazon, a pint for like 35 bucks!
