    Whats the best herbicide to kill clover when using 1/4 gallon per 1000 sq ft?

    Speedzone, Momentum, Chaser??? Ester, amine? Spike it with extra 2,4D? Is a 100% kill possible with just one app?

    Warm days -- cool days? Surfactant? Go slow in weedy areas?

    In the past, we would spread & spray using a ride-on....then go over the weedy areas again.

    rscvp, thanks

    Check the label on drive 75. We have attained great clover control with it!

    Ya but we're cheap.:laugh: Anything cheaper? Been using Chaser ester with great results except when using it in ride-ons at 1/4 gallon per 1000 (yes, we use the correct amount -- 1.1 oz per 1000).

    Doesn't matter what you use if you don't get the liquid on all of the Clover! I slow down when I come up on large Clover patch to make sure they all get hit. If it's a large infestation I'll spray em good hith the hose on the Z-Spray as I go by. That usually does them all in. (Mec Amine-d + LI700)

    What Liberty said. Here's what I've tried this season.

    I using 2,4D LV-4 Ester (generic from Tractor Supply), max. label strength with Lesco spreader/sticker.

    Six weeks later I'm seeing other small patches that weren't there when I treated originally. But, the original patches of clover are gone.

    Good luck in finding your solution. - Ed
