    Good Product

    By Jan on 02/10/2023

    This is the best product to control Texas grass stickers. It was more expensive than other places, but is offset by free shipping. I had to get enough to do 10 acres twice, so a major outlay - but I was told I was not eligible for a price reduction. That quantity is a curb drop with shipping, so be sure you are ready to receive it.

    Pre Emergent Balan

    By Darrell on 05/10/2024

    Used for grass burrs and goat heads. Put on lawn, but so far it is too early to tell. Have not seen any of either so far. Will really know in another month or so. Should work just fine though. Balan seems to be about the best for either.
