    Q
    Two questions. I need a good broad-spectrum herbicide to spot spray 15 acres with a 25 ga. sprayer.
    My field is mostly tall fescue. Lots of various weeds - tall and short. 'Was looking at Trimec 992, but wasn't sure. Also could not figure out mix ratio, product per 25 ga. water. Have alot to do, so economy is an issue, too. And would a surfactant help what ever product you recommend? Alot of info, I know, but thanks....
    A
    Trimec 992 would be a good general use broadleaf weed herbicide. You will need to use up to 4.0 pints per acre. When dealing with herbicides the amount of water you use isn't very important as water just acts the carrier. You just need to make sure you are getting the correct amount of product over the recommended amount of space. We would recommend using 1.5 fl oz of Trimec in 1 gallon of water over 1,000 sq ft to help make the application a little easier to figure out. Trimec 992 does not require you to add a surfactant.

    Q
    Do the weeds need to be wet to apply Trimec 992?
    Creeping charlie
    A

    It is best to apply Trimec 992 when the weeds are no too wet from any rain or dew so that the product can be applied to the leaves and not drip off easily from being wet already.  You should apply when rain is not expected within 24 hours after application as well.

    Q
    Creeping Charlie Resistant or old product?
    I applied 992 at the maximum application rate of 1.5oz per 1,000 sqft and it is barely knocking down my creeping charlie (but took out most other weeds. My bottle of Trimec is about 6 years old, but has been sealed tightly and stored out of light. Do you think the creeping charlie is resistant to Trimec 992 and I need to use a different product or do you think my Trimec is just old and I need to order a new bottle from you? Thanks
    A
    Trimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide has a long shelf life should still be viable if you are still seeing results on other troublesome weeds. Creeping Charlie, also known as ground ivy is best treated in the fall. Fall applications can provide improved control of winter emerged annual and perrenial weeds such as Creeping Charlie.

    Q
    I wanted to know if I could mix 4 pints of Trimec in 15 gallons of water and distribute it evenly across my 1-acre lawn?
    You have recommended using 1.5 fl oz of Trimec in 1 gallon of water over 1,000 sq ft. That works out to about You have recommended using 1.5 fl oz of Trimec in 1 gallon of water over 1,000 sq ft. That works out to about 42 gallons per acre. I have a 15-gallon sprayer, so I wanted to know if I could mix 4 pints of Trimec in 15 gallons of water and distribute it evenly across my 1-acre lawn? Would that be fine? Is that too little water?
    A

    Trimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide is mixed at 1.5 fl oz per gallon of water. It will take 4 pints to treat an acre. Herbicides do not give a water amount.  They only tell you how much of the product to apply over 1000 square feet.  The amount of water is dependent on how ever much water it takes for you to walk 1000 square feet.  Whether you place the amount of product per 1000 square feet in a gallon of water or 10 gallons of water, it does not matter, just as long as that amount of product is distributed over the 1000 square feet.

    Q
    What is the mechanism that actually kills the weeds?
    I am using a Fertilome product that contains Trimec. I notice that it beads up on the plant leaves. I'm afraid that it needs something to break through the leaf surface (surfactant) and is not doing it. Does Trimec kill similar to Roundup?
    A
    Trimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide has three different active ingredients that work differently but work exceptionally well together. 2,4-D and MCPP-p are an auxin- type herbicide which is a class  of plant growth regulators. It is absorbed through the leaves and is translocates to the growing points of the plants, causing weed stems to curl and twist, withering, and eventual death. Lastly, the Dicamba is absorbed through the leaves and roots and has multiple modes of actions for hard to kill broadleaf weeds.
