    The local tractor supply co. informed me that they will no longer carry the liquid concentrate in 1 gallon jugs just 2.5 and 5 gallon jugs now and I was wondering what the shelf life is? I only use around a gallon of the concentrate a year at the most and I do not want to buy a large jug and have it be no good next season

    It lasts a long time (years?). Make sure that you store it in a cool place out of direct sun and you should have no problems.
    I have used 2-4-D that was frozen as well, and it still worked.

    FROZEN? don't go there man, try to buy enough to use in a season and don't use stuf that has been frozen. at 38-30 bucks for a 2.5 gallon, how can you not buy enough to get you through the year. Step up and get some tri-mec anyway, not just plain old 2-4-d. Dave g

    Come on Dave, I am not reccomending that you go out and freeze your 2-4-D!!!! What I said was that it could still be used, if you happened to have left it somewhere that it could have been frozen, instead of moving it into a heated storage area like you (me!) should have.
    Plow Kid is not worried about not having enough for the season, he is worried about having TOO much for the season.
