    I need to keeep brushy/ woody growth knocked down in a yard that is mostly woods, very little grass. From what I understand a combo of glypho & triclopyr would be a good mix. I've never used triclopyr before so I would appreciate any suggestions. I will be spot spraying with a wand from my extra tank on the Z Spray and or backpack. Oz per gal and etc. BTW it is 95+ here.

    Triclopyr has been around for a while, about 20 years. It is a part of Horsepower, lesco Eliminate, Lesco Momentum,and Confront. Turflon is triclopyr. Works very well. No odor.

    Turflon is for turf areas. Garlon, Tahoe, and Pathfinder II are for non-turf areas. 3A (amine) has aquatic uses. 4E is the ester.

    AR,
    I use gly and Remedy together.
    .5 oz of gly per gallon and .5 oz of remedy.
    I obtain adequate control since the remedy(Triclopyr Ester) penetrates very well.
    As far as odor..........you be the judge........it does have a plastic like odor.
