    I am newer to this, but I used Momentum on a yard with some clover and it did a WONDERFUL job!!! Owner and myself were VERY pleased.

    If its a problem, be sure to use the high rate of whatever you use and be sure you are calibrated to put on the correct amount--it won't work if you are not applying the full amount. Be sure to include a good wetting agent. Spot spray if there are only a few clumps.

    If you are not taking out clover with what you are using your rate is to low. I have no problem taking clover out with just Three-Way. I usually spray mid-rate. Add a surfactant. Clover goes a little slower than dandelions but within a week it should show signs of wilting. If its spots maybe they are misses. Just go over them again.

    I am not sure when in the season is the best to kill clover.

    Also, be sure it is actually clover. Could be oxalis, difficult to kill, or black medic--both closely resemble clover. Also there are several clover species: hop clover, sweet clover, red clover.

    For all the tough to kill above I agree with 3-way tankmixed with a Mecoprop.

    Excellent point, are you sure you are dealing with clover. Can you post a pic?

    What about a granular product. Would momentum work? Or apply momentum and then something else?
    Oxalis or black medic doesn't have the little white flower does it?
