    Hey all,
    I think thats what you call it, sticker prevents drift?

    I picked up a bottle of Bonide Turbo Spreader Sticker on my last visit to Southern States as thats the only thing they had. I used it last week and notices a big difference when I sprayed; could actually see the ground was wet where I sprayed and never could before.

    Upon closer examination on the side of the bottle (No Label) I see it mentions better distribution to the foliage better and briefly talks about "reduce leaching and product waste" which I assume is drift?

    Is this what I need to control drift and is there anything better you all recommend?

    The stuff is like a strong detergent. It wets the weeds better--thereby reducing runoff. Helpful if you have weeds that are waxy or hairy or otherwise hard to wet--like clover. There are many other similar products.

    Or weeds like nutsedge which I know I'm going to have :cry:

    Pre-ems won't take care of the nutsedge so I know I'm going to have to spray for that.

    Thanks guys, I'll look into this

    sticker-and a drift product a seperate- spreader sticker gives you better coverage on the weeds- a drift product will tighten up the pattern to reduce drift from target-tried a few drift products this spring and had problems with it binding to the pre-emergent, broadleaf mix,so I say no to the drift product and would use a larger spray tip, if a little windy;

    we have a lot of nutsedge here and crop oil is good when temps are a little warmer and the cost per k is half compared to sticker
