    Thanks

    My understanding is Aquamaster is Monsant's version and Rodeo is Dow's version.

    Due to the recomendation of our wetlands consultant we are required to use "Rodeo" we have already tried to sway her to utilize similar products (same active) and have been denied. Has to be "Rodeo"

    God Love the unwashed Bureaucracy, Because no one else will.

    About 5 years ago or so, Monsanto sold the name Rodeo and started using Aquamaster as their brand name. I am not sure why the Bureaucracy would not accept Monsanto's (the Original Makers of Rodeo) Aquamaster. But it sounds like you are dealing with a Alpha female dog.

    Call Dow and find out who handles their products in your area.

    BTW Do you happen to have some Empty Rodeo jugs????:cool2:

    I would also say Fisher and Son.

    You'll be hard pressed to find better service elsewhere.

    read page 10 of 16 pages where it says Aquatic and other noncrop sites.

    use your common sense if you don't want to read a label, the product is called AQUAstar.
