    There are about four things you need to know,

    1. Are you spraying? WG or Flowable?
    2. Spreading on Fert?
    3. Single or split application?
    4. How much AI per acre are you wanting to appy?

    You might consider Barricade 4FL. Being the fact your spraying out of a 25 gallon boom with minimal jet agitation keeping the 4FL in suspension would be more efficient. The Barricade 4FL is also an agency priced item your cost would run $142.00 a gallon. Considering your location I would assume your applying .75lb ai/acre your cost per acre would be $26.64.

    Not sure exactly what your questions about all the different kinds is. Prodiamine is the active the difference would be the formulation or the carrier.

    i have used it in the past out of my jr and it has worked great. i used the 4l also.. i called today to get a price on it and thats what they told me 142.00 per gallon.. i will pay more and get the 4l instead of the wdg. was looking at dimension but might stick with what has worked for me in the past and that was the barricade 4fl..

    might look into tower and see what info i can find on it..
