    Hey guys, I had an idea that may help all of us Perma-green owners (especially me). I am a new owner, of a PG ultra and I am currently searching for products that are designed to be used in low volume sprayers. So............ I wondered if you guys could suggest liquid products that you have used successfully in a PG, weed control, fertilizers, fungicides, PGR's etc. If possible only suggest products that are labeled for use with low volume sprayers and have dilution rates that are still on label. This could serve as a cheat sheet for all of us. There are so many products out there it has been overwhelming, but educational, researching it. I have done searches by the way. Hopefully everyone can get something out of this thread.

    I am not being lazy, just trying to be efficient.

    Thanks, from FLC Dave

    Most any broadleaf weed product is designed and labeled for low volume applications. Fert. and fungicides are not for the most part.

    Specialty, thanks! See I have already learned somthing. Come to think of it most of the low volume discussion has been around plant growth regulators lately. Well, lets see what comes of this thread, maybe no one will participate. Thanks for your reply though.

    Nope, you forgot FLC Dave that I'm also trying some Chelated - Iron product from Lesco, 12-0-0. Trying to see if you can spray iron out of the PG. Tomorrow I will be looking over results from stuff I sprayed on Monday.

    As for Momentum, a broadleaf herbicide, personally I've gotten great results with 1 oz / 1000 and some spreader-sticker, whereas MrBareFoot did not get good results.

    I have been using SpeedZone as my primary weed control product this year. It is labeled for the low volume rates, and the control is satisfactory.

    We are considering mixing in some Ferromec with our spray, even though the label states that the minimum spray volume must be .5gal/1kft^2. Results will be posted when they become available.

    And LwnmwrMan22 is correct when he says that I was not satisfied with the control I was getting with Momentum.
