    Help pls, I need to spray herbicide for weed control on a fairly large commercial property up in the mountains where the tempature for the week is going to be in the 60s as a high for the day. What ester product or other product would I have best control with. Not worried about crab grass but site has clover, spurge ,oxalis, and thistle. thanks.

    Any ester 2,4-D product will do fine.

    Turflon Ester is a good choice. Can be added to 3-way products for good-excellent control.

    PBI Gordon's Speedzone!!!!!!!!! This stuff is awesome!!!!!!! The only downside is that it is a little more costly than some of the other esters on the market.

    Salt of Dicamba is the active int. in like 992. You can get it in a more consternate form in Clarity (AG label is Ban val). We have gone back to using 2-4D and using it at like a 8oz per acre rate. It is actually cheaper and alot better results.
