    I have been using Surflan pre-emergent but over the past few years the price has skyrocketed. I am looking for something to replace it, an off name Surfllan or a place to buy it on the internet (that is cheaper). Same thing with Round-up. I will check with my chemical supplier this week and get some prices to compare.

    I have found a couple of places locally here in New Orleans. What size and price have you been purchasing?

    If you have a tractor supply around they have a product called Clearout that is Glyphosate and surfactant for about $55/2.5 gallon.

    I don't know what to tell you about Surflan. I always use Snapshot or Gallery with some Barricade if I feel like it. None are resembling cheap though, but would likely cover more weeds.

    monsanto makes its own knockoff of its own roundup. I think its hondo or something. Supposed to be in the 50 dollar range but i havent tried it only heard the railroads switched to it and say it works well.

    Monanto's knock off is Honcho. Works great.

    Generic Surflan's price has dropped like a rock as any off-patent item usually does. Shop reputable ag-chemical suppliers & you should find this to be the case.
