Chemicals that are available to the public.....pfffft.

whats wrong with Roundup or 2,4D or 2,4,5T.....pffft lawnmower jockeys :lol:

Pretty sure agent orange is not available to the public o2m.
To answer your question though. The **** they sell in stores for home use is dialed way back. Diluted. It's more expensive too and doesn't work half as good.

so your saying roundup is good or bad?
in the midwest almost anyone can walk into farm surplus store and get "real" roundup.
agent orange is a mixture of 2,4d and 2,4,5t. i make my own when needed, but round up is still the clear winner.even in the big box stores they sell round up in concentrate. same exact **** as what you can get your hands on. i just spent all day spraying around buildings. probably killed a cat or two also :cry:

I'm not talking non selective herbicides. Im talking about stuff I can spray on my yard not touch the grass and roast all the weeds.[/quote]
2,4D[/quote]
it doesn't quite get everything. I can spray crab grass out of Bermuda and only kill the crab. 2,4d don't kill clover either. Spotted spurge. Lots of things.

Need to see if you can get your hands on some diquat to mix in with the roundup.You won't be disappointed

Yeah it's aquatic but if you mix it in with some roundup it will burn **** down in a matter of hours.

I think he's telling us he trims first by making the sound of his string trimmer.

We used straight sulfuric Acid for the top kill on ours up until last year. Nasty ****. ruined a lot of my good pants spraying potatoes :lol: This year we switched to a new one called Nfuric, I didn't spray though so don't know much about that one.
