    Looking for a powerful weed killer that doesn't take a week to kill a weed.

    roundup quicpro. Legally you need a license for it, unreal.

    Are you talking non-selective control (killing everything you spray), or are you trying to selectively kill, for example, only the nutsedge growing in your turf? Roundup Quikpro has diquat, is non selective, and kills everything. Manage herbicide, added to sticker, could slowly take out nutsedge. However, if the weeds that you are spraying are struggling for survival along with the grasses (like here in Ohio right now), the metabolism within those weeds could be so slowed down that even Roundup products would not be very effective. What are the conditions that you are having?

    Mr. Hurry, with all due respect, if you slow down and explain exactly what you're trying to do and where you're trying to do it, I know us folks can scrape our remaining few brain cells together for an answer. If you're killing everything in turf for a complete renovation, for example, D & J's suggestion of 'Razor Burn' is ideal. If you're perpetually battling weeds in landscape beds and you need a pre / post combination tank mix, you might mix the Razor Burn with water soluable packets of Ronstar. This will help keep you from respraying the beds so often.
