    Need juuuuuuuuust a little more info here, buddy. Are you looking for a non-selective "RoundUp", or are you looking for a selective like Atrazine, 2,4-D, or what?

    For RoundUp, go to your local farm/ranch supply store. Buy a 2.5 gallon jug of Glyphosate 41, it costs $60.

    STOP TYPING WITH ALL CAPS, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE ANGRY!!!

    Get Spectracide. Just get a 3 gal sprayer and mix your own mixture. best vegetation killer on the market. if you just want to kill weeds in a yard use a dial sprayer.

    use roundup powermax brand.

    you can use the other brands but they don't have as much salt in them so you have to mix about 1/2 an ounce more of it per gallon than you do the roundup brand.

    the other brands have 41% but roundup has 48.7%.

    you can use about 1 1/2 ounces per gallon of roundup brand but you have to use about 2oz per gallon of the other brands to get the same effect. you aren't really saving much money since you have to use more.

    also in my experience the roundup brand seems to go longer between sprayings than the other brands.

    Find the cheapest 2.5 gallon concentrate with 41% or higher glyphosate. Right now I can find it for around $60. Mix 3 ounces per gallon of water. Put in a little surfactant and within 2-3 weeks things should die. Spray the weeds thoroughly.
