    I have a large are that I will be spraying with round up. My thing is that I have always used quick pro. I think I'm paying 85 a jug. Is there anything out there that Is the same % without looking at a million labels that would be cheaper. My price is not great I'm sure but Im a smaller company this will be a job that will take 3 jugs. I have calls to reps but the holiday is getting me I need to get it done ASAP.

    The are is just shy of 2 acres. I have tried the TS cheap crap and had to mix it way strong to get a good kill.

    I have been using Drexel Imitator plus from Rural King. $35.00 for 2.5 gallons. It has 15% surfactant already added along with the 41% gly. Works very well.
