    Why would you get any diffrent results with a ride on sprayer than a back pack or truck mounted tank? Follow the label. 1.5 ounces per 1000 works well for me. This number must be adjusted depending on exact conditions though.

    "Follow the label. 1.5oz per 1000 works well for me."

    LOL - the label specifies between 1.1-1.3 oz per 1000. You are in violation of federal law by applying at 1.5oz. (Yeah, we do it, too)

    Having said that, I apply at 1.5oz/1000 w/ the PermaGreen spray with excellent results.

    I have been using a lower rate, around 3/4 oz per 1k due to the high temps, and that has been doing ok.
    However, being the extreemly smart person that I am, I mixed some Iron with the Momentum, and guess what??? It has cloged up the entire system. Has anyone got any suggestions on what can be used to clean up this Iron mess??
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
  5. Check out this thread I found using the search funnction.

    Had to do it,but realy. If you go by lable rate should not have any problems. But yes I had to make a little stronger in the spring to kill the clover and ground ivy. My sprayer I made and it's on a Lazer. Some times you might have to reaply as spot spraying to get the best results. As with any chemical.

    Have any of you ever tried MCPP. This chemical is cheap and very. very effective on all the clover/ground ivy type weeds. It will knock down any of them in 1 day no repeat application. Cost is about 16 cents (yes cents) per 1000 treated. I use quart to the acre and it is about 25 dollars a gallon. It will not work for dandys.....but great for the clover, woodsorel, creeping charlie, creeping jenny. Try it, what have you got to lose. You can mix it with millenium and get even better results......hope this helps.
