    Will Speedzone work very well at the 50 - 60 degree temperatures?

    Have personally not used it much but remember last year guys were using it in cold temps and it was working well. It is an Ester formulation so it should work better than amines in the cold. Amines work well over 60, so I'm thinking 50-60 should be ok for speedzone.

    Absolutely, and even colder if you have morning temps in the 40's and afternoon in the 50's. Other than the odor and being a bit pricey, Speedzone is an awesome product.

    Odor? There sure isn't much odor compared to the Millennium Ultra I used to spray. Go to the CDMS site and read the label for app info. As stated it is an ester so it is a cool season killer. Caution signal word and rainfast in 3 hours. A little pricey but that is made up by ZERO callbacks.

    As I said it is an awesome product. I wasn't comparing it to milinium ultra when I referenced the odor, and I can tell you from experence it is rainfast in less than 3 hours.

    Sure - we've been having good success with three way + quicksilver + surfactant, 50's & 60's - weeds are curling up and dying in 2-3 days. QS AI is carfentrazone as well.

    Works great in the 50's. Remember, however, that the soil temp also needs to be atleast that high. Just b/c the weather is warm enough doesn't mean the soil has activated yet. (But I'm sure you already know that. :D )

    Well if it is cheap then it must be organic so my guess is vinegar.
