Weed Killer

Postby reeper0697 » Thu Feb 12, 2009 2:26 pm

Has anyone ever tried Gordon's brand weed killers? I was at tractor supply today and it is pretty cheap compared to others. I have used Round Up and Eliminator before but I was just wondering if anyone had any info on this stuff. Something I noticed about this stuff is that it says you need to wait 3 weeks after you spray before you plant when I know Round Up you can plant like 24 hours after you spray.
 
Any info would be great. Thanks

The Gordons brand has been around for a while.
 
Here's a few questions:
 
1. Is there weed killer a systemic type herbicide like Round Up? Or does it take it up through the roots?
 
2. Does it contain a surfactant, like the concentrated forms of Round Up do, like Round Up Pro?

There were several different kinds. I was looking at them for a bit but I had the g/f with me so I couldnt look for too long. I grabbed a brochure but it didnt say much. I read it contained glyphosate which is used in roundup which is a surfactant it said.
For the price difference I was curious if anyone has ever used it and their experiences with it or if I should just shell out more $ for the roundup (it is nice not having to wait 3 weeks after spraying)

Do you know how much off hand Erase usually costs? (for the sq ft it does)

Generic roundup has many different names. If it is 41% gly. and yellow or brown in color the surfactant is already in it. Last year I payed $65.00 for 2 1/2 gal, the year before $39.00. Just shop around for the best deal. 1 1/2 to 2 qts. per ac. will give you a good kill.
