Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ilovemywillow Great product. Great Price
I have a 2500 square-foot garden so I needed a lot of Roundup to kill the grass between the rows of my vegetables Round up was so expensive it was prohibitive I was doubtful about this brand at first and even more so when I saw that the mixing ratio was so much less but I went with it and couldn't be more pleased. The product works as well as round up for a fraction of the cost. Also bought their systemic insecticide for my crape Myrtle trees that have Bark scale and it cured it

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doctorhugo Excellent Systemic Vegetation Killer
Given individual circumstances differ, this product will work as advertised. For tall grasses and other stubborn vegetation I apply a second application ONLY after the first treatment yellowing-down (about 2-3 days) has started and always when I'm reasonably certain of dry weather for about 3 hours.
One must also realize that adjacent machine cutting/tilling, birds and winds can disburse NEW grass/weed seed into the area you've treated and so you may have to walk it and spot-treat to maintain what I call a 'matted -down dead-zone'. I use a 50% increase in recommended mixture strength as I want to kill material when it's tall and will result in a densely-matted mix of lengthy browned-out dead grasses/weed. Another reason I increase the mix ratio is that I apply starting at false-dawn to beat the summer heat as I'm well into my late 70s. When you start early the vegetation is full-wet with DEW. It dilutes your mix upon contact and you should realize and allow for that. Not so later on in the morning. This systemic product leaves the top growth and roots intact, a decided advantage to a deeply-matted and stabile area being held for future use (gravel access road/path, veggie/floral plantings, whatever).
One key word - PATIENCE. This is NOT a poisonous contact herbicide. It's a systemic that requires uptake by the plant top-growth down through to the roots. I treat large areas by creating staked sections and treating them TWICE. Then 2-3 days later I moved two of my four stakes and have marked the adjacent section I'll work. Then I hand-pump spray that one with a first coat application. Easy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doctorhugo WORKS AS ADVERTISED IF YOU INCREASE MIX RATIO BY 50% (and apply twice as insurance)
Live in Middle TN area and have all manner of tough weeds plus tall fescue, etc. I use a small 3gal. hand-pump spray unit. I select isolated sections to treat one at a time and on a day when no rain is expected for at least 3 hours after spraying. I'm older (79) and so start in the very early morning allowing myself 1 1/2hrs.application time to beat the heat. Misting the product on when the dew is still on the vegetation is NOT a detriment. I skip 1 day and repeat this application again.
Every time, as I start the second application, I can already see the vegetation starting to 'yellow-out', meaning dieback has already commenced.
By two days after the second application the turf is browned-out and starting to fall over and mat-down. That is, FOR ME, a decided advantage and one reason I apply carefully, slowly and thoroughly with overlapping figure-eights, ESPECIALLY on the first application. The matting down stops new windblown weed/grass seed from taking root easily and growing.
In the period of June through to mid-September I'll inspect areas for any signs of new green growth and spot-spray these. That shoud be the extent of maintenance. My intent is to maintain this matted down barrier and just parallel to it spread some clean topsoil about 2' wide and scatter a mix of wildflower seed that can be bought in lb.bulk. I'll do that in the third week of August and again in the very early AM hours to beat the heat AND before the winds come up here in the hollows. Without the vegetation competition on one side the wildflowers (annual/perennial mix) should dense up in the first fall growth season and increase in later years with the perennials taking over more and more.
You MUST realize that this is NOT a CONTACT-TO-KILL weed/grass killer (which is more dangerous to use). It's a SYSTEMIC killer and works by being absorbed by the plant growth and clogging-up the internal pathways of plant nutrition/absorption so the plants dies down to the root. IT WORKS! And is of minimal risk after 24 hours, safe after 48 hours and is great for animal pasture fence base ground control and weed/grass control alongside long gravel driveways too..

This is the best weed killer on the market. I use it every year and get great results every time. I would not waste my money or time using anything else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IMHO As good as Roundup
Been using this for 3 years. Works great on everything from normal weeds to light brush.1.5 oz/gal kills most weeds in 5-7 days. Stronger = faster.

I have 3,000 acres where I manage weeds. This is my number one tool for that purpose. It is effective on most weeds. It works well with drill and inject, cut stump or spray. Don't expect to see wilting or other signs right away. The mode of action doesn't produce immediate effects. But ten days to two weeks later all the weeds are dead. The trade-off is that this is the safest herbicide I have found when used as directed. The LD50 of 5,000 is midway between NaCl (3,000) and H2O (7,000). The short residual allows for planting or recruitment of other plants right away. No motility means it stays put and will not travel through the soil to desirable plants. Of coarse, always follow label directions and use PPE.
