What is a good percentage for 2,4 D? The most I could find at Lowes was 8%. Will local farming co-ops have better stuff?

Is this how I get rid of clover and other weeds in the grass?


Yep--effective on broad leaf shite in your grass but will not kill the narrow shite (in simple terms)

Yeah--if you want to kill everything, use Roundup or more potent non-brand glyphospate.

Don't recall the specifics though.


Banned use from May 1 - Sept. 1. 2,4-D becomes volatile (gaseous) somewhere in the 90 degree+ range. This is where drift comes into play.

That's why it is so good on the lillies during the summer.

What you get at Lowes is more than fine for residential use.

What else do you guys use on your lawns?

Just bought a house at the tail end of Summer last year. Haven't had much experience dealing with lawn care (besides mowing, trimming, etc.) Poor lemon and orange trees are infected with sooty mold that I need to take care of as well.

They may but you might need an applicator license to buy it. The stuff at garden centers is fine.

Here's what I do to treat clovers on my centipede lawn.

Buy this...


and this...


Put some of the concentrated weed free zone in the sprayer. Set dial on sprayer to "2". Attach to hose and you can spot treat or spray your whole yard with this set up. You buy this stuff at Louisiana Nursery or Cleggs. Works great for clovers, buttonweed, and dollarweed.

spray when its cool/ cloudy like others said. liquid can turn into a gas and drift to neighbors yard and cause problems if its sunny and hot. roundup will kill everything. 2,4-D will kill broadleaf and not so much grasses

I just bought this 2,4 D off of Amazon. Is it good enough? From what I have seen on here it's a healthy percentage.

2,4 D on Amazon
