    Where do you professionals buy roundup or other weed killers in bulk and how much do you spend per gallon? I know the HD price here for the 2 gallon Pro is $168.00. Is there a cheaper supplier that you use?

    B & T Growers Supply sells Honcho (41% Glyphosate and made by Monsanto, same as Roundup) 2 1/2 gallons for $102.50. With shipping, it came to $120.

    If you want more than 2 1/2 gallon size they have it in 15 gallon and 30 gallon containers.

    The price will run about mid 60.00 per gallon. This for Roundup Weather Max. This stuff really works fast and is guaranteed even if it gets rained on after 30 minutes.

    Gordon's also sells Glyphosate @ 41%. We get this from the farm & fleet, Big R, or ranch supply store. You don't get a discount but it sells for $55/gallon. Sure beats having to buy 55 gals. to get this price.

    Hope this helps.

    Just bought 2.5 gal. of Roungup Weathermax for 139.95 at Southern States farm store in Kentucky. I believe the active ingredients is about 49%.
    Note: Most of the time I believe the larger the size..the stronger the mix.
