3 acres, hunh? . . . grass . . . hmmmm. Well, I'd use the stuff designed for 3 acres . . . of grass. Maybe the stuff for 3 1/2 acres in case you run short.

(sigh)

Wanna rethink and rewrite the question? I think you'll have two ache-ers after the responses you're gonna get . . .

quiet, great response LOL!
What are we trying to kill? Is this 3 acres of lawn or park or pasture or what? Drive is a great product but your looking at $250 or so for 3 acres.

Depends......what are you trying to eradicate? Broadleaf? Grassy? Both? 3 acres? For 3 acres, I'd suggest something cheap. Why not straight 2,4D mixed with straight MSMA, with a non-ionic surfactant? and maybe mix some liquid N in there with it? Go back and re-apply in 10 to 14 days. Just a suggestion, dont critique....there are many types of products on the market, but when it comes right down to the basics, they (most) are made up of the same chemicals or equivalent.

Only thing about 2,4 D product is that it smells bad. Thats why I use momentum or millenium ultra. But will use 2,4 D product if it is cooler weather.

rob1325 - Momentum and Millenium both contain healthy amounts of 2,4D. If your customers don't like the smell, try adding Klok to the spray tank. Several ounces/100 gallons will make your spray smell like mint.

My supplier gave me a quart of 'something' from Helena, I believe, that is supposed to make the herbicide smell like bubblegum! Don't know, haven't tried it yet...:)

DaleL - Lesco carried a product at one time that was supposed to smell like bubblegum. I got a free sample to try, but it didn't seem to work as good as Klok. I had some finicky people that really liked the mint smell from Klok. The things you have to do to please some people.....

I know 2,4, D is in momentum, ment to say like using momuntum because it don't smell as bad as a Trimec with 2,4, D, but when cool out I will use Trimec or Lesco 3 way. Also please tell more about Klok.

Klok (pronounced "cloak") is made by Agrinomics, Inc. You may want to try a search on the web. I purchased it from Turfgrass, Inc. They are out of South Lyon, MI. but have sites in Ohio. They UPS and take credit cards. 1-800-521-TURF.
