Andrew, Before you buy an ornamental herbicide and there are many. Keep in mind that most ornamental herbicides and other pesticides in general have an agricultural equivalent that almost always sells for half the price. A good example is metolachlor. PENNANT @ $250 a gallon for ornamentals and DUAL-MAGNUM @ $120 a gallon agricultural. Both are exactly the same formulation with different stickers on the bottle. Many growers buy the ag version and keep an ornamental lable on file for the EPA.... Bob
