with all the dandelions out there, i think the cost is low..
In March/early April I use straight 2-4-d ester lv4 It works better at low temps and cleans up dandilions real fast, once other weeds start popping up and daytime temps rise I switch to 3-way.
i think this yr. i am giving it a shot..
MMM, what is considered a low temp?
Duekster, any ester based herbicide has a very high volatility rate above about 78*-80*F.
So right now is a good time to apply and I have successfully applied 2,4-D at 34*F several times. I didn't like to spray at those lower temps but circumstances at the course dictated the time of the application.
I actually got reasonable control as well but I froze my butt on that freaking Cushman sprayer though.
That brings back memories.
With all the COLD weather we are having now I think I'm going to skip on into the TSC or Orchelns and pick up a gallon of 24D Ester 4L myself... I can't even use the 3 way or Momentum I have in the garage due to the cold, and the weeds need to be taken care of now, not in a few weeks.
I stopped using the expensive 3 way mixes years ago. I use a low volatility 2, 4-D year round. I would look at getting it in the 6lb formulation rather than the 4lb. The cost difference is negligible but you can use 30% less with the 6lb so it is a whole lot cheaper. Most of the cost is in shipping.
i mix mine with water
sorry guys: you know what i ment..lol
