    For the guys doing only a small amount of grub control I guess the china generics are ok but I'll continue to pay the premium for bayers backing, What happens if you get burned on like 30-40 acres of dylox and reno? who's paying for it? whos backing it? will someone from the rice patties climb out for a weekend and come over here and give a damn about your properties.

    Still VERY HAPPY with the Mach II.

    My big pests are the Grubs it targets as well as the Sod Webworm.

    Love this product.

    Will Rotate Allectus next year for the 3 year rotation. Mach/Mach/Allectus


    Chinch Bugs and Billbugs are not an issue for my area, OR I would use Merit/Allectus on a 2 year rotation :rolleyes:

    I'm glad mach 2 works for you and I hope it continues to work, but I wouldn't even use it again if it was free, just my opinion.

    I'll get together some university studies over the past five years and get them to you, on some charts the control is so low it isn't even visible to the naked eye, thats also one of the reasons Dow agri is thinking about an eventual stop sale on mach and the other reason is Merit is so much cheaper than Mach2 and Bayer makes a product to back it up if needed does Dow?? NO, it's a no brainer

    Thanks Prof.

    I must be a lucky guy with the Granular 1.33% Andersons Product.

    My results at the 2Lb ai. Acre have been outstanding!


    Sometimes those "Case Studies" can be Biased, by how much $$$$ is given to the Universities too.


    But I do appreciate your feedback and hope the Mach is available for many years to come. Best 1x season app. ever made for Sod Webworm IMO.
