We do not see anything listed on the product label for Kochia Plants. However, according to the web, we do see that the results indicate that amine and am- monium salts of 2,4-D and dicamba are more toxic to kochia than sodium or calcium salts. Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide has been discontinued, therefore we cannot advise on any detailed information
You should wait to mow 2 days after an application of Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide or mow 2 days prior to application.
There is a very clear and real reason as to why these chemicals are given at rates per 1000 sq/ft and not per gallon. Per gallon rates ONLY apply to spot treatments, and even then it still takes into consideration the broadcast rate instructions. If you are spraying an entire surface of a lawn for weeds, it is imperative that you get the correct amount of chemical/active ingredient dispersed evenly over the correct amount of surface area. Herbicides work on weeds by being distributed at a certain rate per area to yield the results you are looking for. If a product states to use for example 1 oz per 1000 sq/ft, the water volume you use can vary from person to person, yard to yard, and equipment used to apply it. If you apply 1 oz of chemical over 500 sq/ft for instance, you would kill your weeds but you also would harm your lawn because the concentration of chemical to area is too dense. If you use 1 oz of chemical over 1,500 sq/ft, you have spread the active ingredient too thin to work effectively and wont kill the weeds or the grass. The water volume is based on your individual situation which is why it is recommended to calibrate your sprayer to know how much water volume you personally use to get sufficient coverage in your yard. If I mow my lawn at a 2 inch height and have barely any weeds to spray, I will use less water to disperse 1 oz of chemical over 1000 sq/ft than you would if you mow your grass at a 4 inch height, and have large established weeds that will take more water volume to cover them, but still the same amount of chemical. If you know it takes you 2 gallons of water to cover 1000 sq/ft, then THAT is what you mix the rate of chemical to per label instructions for your grass type. You can see a video on how to measure and calibrate your sprayer before adding chemicals to it HERE.
According to the Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide Product Label:
For cool season grasses such as Fescue, Rye, and Bluegrass: Use 1.1 to 1.5 oz per 1000 sq/ft in your calibrated volume of water for your yards needs
For warm season grasses such as Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, etc: Use 0.5 to 0.9 oz per 1000 sq/ft in your calibrated volume of water for your yards needs.
Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide has a shelf life of 3 to 5 years from the manufacturer's date, if stored in a temperature stable environment and away from any direct sunlight.
We generally do not recommend mixing products such as Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide with a quinclorac herbicide such as Drive XLR8. This is partly because the Mec Amine already has multiple active ingredients. Moreover, Drive XLR8 requires the addition of a methylated seed oil (MSO) surfactant such as Prime Source Duo Stick; however adding this kind of surfactant with the 3-Way broadleaf herbicide can greatly increase the risk of damaging desirable turfgrass.
Keep in mind, as well, that you need to be sure any products you are tank mixing are both labeled for the area(s) where you want to apply them.
Please let us know if would like another recommendation for products fit for your needs. You may consider Q4 Plus Herbicide in the meantime since this product contains quincloracl and broadleaf herbicides already formulated in one product.
Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide should not leave a stain on pavement or pavers since it is a pale colored liquid. However, since this product has oils in it, we still recommend exercising caution when using this or other herbicides near porous surfaces such as stone or concrete. This product was discontinued by the manufacturer, so please let us know if you do not already have this and need a recommendation for a different product.
The label for Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide states that it is not for use on “Floratam” St Augustine grass. You can apply to warm-season St. Augustine at a rate of 2 to 2.5 pints per acre (0.75 to 0.9 oz per 1000 sq ft). It also states to use the lower rate if your grass is stressed from heat or drought and to exercise caution when applying during growth seasons.
No, Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide is not labeled for purple losestrife or lythrum salicaria.
Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide is not labeled for wild violet.
If you over-apply Mec Amine D 3-Way Broadleaf Herbicide or any similar post-emergent herbicide, then you risk damaging your desirable turf. You may need to fertilize to help turf recover, or if there is irreparable damage, then you may need to reseed those areas the next season. We encourage you always to read and follow the product label instructions for any herbicides.
