    Just wanting to see what everyone cost per acre is on product for Round 1

    Sprayable: I am at about 40.00 dollars per acre .25 N and .50lbs of Pre-M

    Granular: Much more costly 16-4-8 MESA .38AI about 65.00 per Acre

    Anyone using Barricade as a combination product and getting in the 50.00 dollar range per acre on Granular?

    Are you saying that you apply .5 lbs AI of pendimethalin per acre for Rd.1?

    Last year my round 1 was about $30 bucks. pendimethalin (later changed to prodiamine) and 2,4-d ester plus dicamba where needed.

    i hope you mean 1.5 pounds active ingredient of pendimethalin per acre. Two pounds would be better: Sun light degrades the pendi, especially when it dries on the leaf blade.
    Also we use a lot more nitrogen. Then again we do not mow our grass--maybe you want to reduce your mowing costs.
    Our costs for Team 16-0-8 after sales tax for product is something like 53 per acre. .
