Trillion, par-3, premium 3way and I believe target are all basically the same thing. Estaprop, dicamba and a phenoxy (don't recall which one). They all work great with high water volumes for "crop safety". I use trillion because it's the cheapest but I also use rinsate from my sprayer if I spray a broadleaf only and rinse at home. I have a 6 acre patch of "lawn" out back and will spray the rinsate out there. I also have a jug of Grazon that I use but not near my trees.

I asked my mom if she wanted me to spray the dandelions in her lawn this year. "No they are pretty." I think she was drinking.

Enforcer D or M with a little refine works great. Anything with flouroxipur will do a good job.

Did Lontrel because we had dandelions and thistles. Worked really well. The problem is I'm left with $450 worth of Lontrel now

Probably wine, as a kid I got a nickle to pick a gallon of flowers for mom for her wine. I've made it myself, very medicinal.

That sh*ts expensive but it works. Bought a 10 litre jug to spray 4 acres of rented land that the owner had brushed. He brushed trees then I stumped them Rototilled then seeded canola. The thistles and dandelions were crazy thick. Canola germ was good and waited until the thistle and dandelion leaves were large then hit it with Lontrel. Rate was who knows as I used a quad sprayer and did the glug glug rate. Not a broadleaf 3 years later so far.
