The Monterey Herbicide Helper (Oil Concentrate) is an oil based surfactant that helps your herbicides spread and penetrate into the infested area. This surfactant is made of a combination of crop oil and non-ionic material, which wets the target foliage and provides for better and faster results on controlling and eliminating the weed population on your property. The product can also be used with non-selective herbicides that contain glyphosate, like Monterey Weed Impede, and selective herbicide such as Grass Getter. The product should not be used with selective herbicides that depend on not wetting the target pest.
Add Monterey Herbicide Helper to mixed spray solution and agitate thoroughly.
Recommend frequent shaking of sprayer while spraying.
Avoid use with selective herbicides when selectivity depends on not wetting the primary target.
Note: Not for aquatic use in Washington.

Will Monterey Herbicide Helper work with Trimec 992 Herbicide?
If so, do you sell it in larger quantity?
Using Monterey Herbicide Helper or any other surfactant with Trimec 992 can damage turfgrass, reducing selectively. We would not recommend using a surfactant with Trimec 992 unless turf damage can be tolerated, or unless a small area is tested first. Monterey Herbicide is available in 8 oz and 16 oz bottles.
