    Sorry, no answer here. I have used Round-Up only because it gets the job done - always. To save money, buy the largest quantity of CONCENTRATE available and mix according to label. :usflag:

    i use remuda made by monterey 41% glyphosate the same as (round up pro) I get a gallon for $68 the round up purple cap is actually 51% glyphosate. Glyphosate is also known as Isoproplamine salt.

    anything is cheaper than Roundup. The active ingredient is Glyphosphate and is sold under many brandnames. Buy the largest amount you can afford. Lesco sells their brand Prosecutor in 2.5 gal for about $75. If you can afford to buy a 50 gallon drum and the per ounce price goes way down.

    get a bag or halite rock salt and put it in a 5gal bucket of water to disolve. Salt water will kill anything no liscense needed
