    Round up Pro has surfacant already added.

    Pro might have a higher concentrate of chemical.

    getmo is right, Pro has a sufacant. The leaner concetrate is RoundUp T/O. If you have some regular RoundUp and you need a sufacant, just add a few drops of dish washing liquid to your back-pack (assumption) and mix in, does the job.

    I have just about a gallon left of RoundupPro and I am switching to RoundupPro Dry. The "Dry" big jug is cheaper than the 2.5 gallon liquid jug.

    The Pro line is more concentrate than the retail stuff from Wal-mart and such places. It has been a while since I used the retail stuff, but, I recall it was like 6 oz per gallon as where the same final solution in the Pro line is like 2 oz.

    I still use a speader sticker with all chemicals. Its real cheap. Something like $17 for a gallon. The rate is ( I believe) 1 tablespoon for every 3 gallons.

    I switched to the Roundup Dry last year & it's great. The measuring cup is in the cap, no more rinsing measuring cups.

    Speaking for the dry, they are identical except for the label. The RoundupDry mixes recommended 1 oz per gallon, ProDry mixes 1.5 oz per gallon. Mix the regular at 1 1/2times what you normally do, and you now have pro.

    Another nice thing about dry is it doesn't freeze, and should over winter better in concentrated form. I think it costs a bit more for the same rate, and you now need to add surfactant. Dave

    I thought that Round Up Pro Dry didn't need surfacant.
