Andrew,

You are correct that the 'Pro-Dry' only contains glyphosate and not diquat. I was looking at what Gempler's (www.gemplers.com) listed, which was the QuickPro 1.5 oz. I did not find a 'Pro-Dry' listed there. Sorry for the confusion.

    For anyone wanting to get some of this, just be aware that it is not just Glyphosate (73.3%), but also contains 2.9% Diquat, which is considerably more toxic than Glyphosate. Also note that cows are particularly sensitive to the toxic effects of this material.

  Are you sure of this information?  Diquat is not listed on the label.  The glyphosate percentage is also incorrect (listed as 71.4%):
