Anyone ever use this. Only needs 4-6 ounces per acre so a quart would do 5-6 acres. Don't have to spray 2 products though for a clover or alfalfa plot to kill grass and broadleaf. You do have to mix with a Nitrogen and Surfactant mix as well but it is pretty cheap. I am thinking about getting this next year for my plots in Ohio. Be nicer when spraying by hand.

Here is the nitro surf

Haven't but interested. It covers 5 1/3-8 acres. That's a pretty reasonable price. Also safe on Chicory, if that's in your plots. Some clover/seed mixes come with it in included.

I bought some but haven't had a chance to spray it yet,maybe this weekend.

Did you buy local or did you order it?

Hurry up and try it so the rest of us know whether to spend our money. >:)

Ordering some too. Won't have a chance to spray for 2 or so weeks. Have you all noticed that the Imox label has hardly any info? The Raptor label has much better detail. (Keystone puts it right in the specs for Imox)

Is the Imox a new generic or something? Last time I checked on it (and it's been a while), Raptor was crazy expensive. We were looking to save some chicory in our plots.

Anyone spray yet? Guessing the weather has been a challenge for those who just ordered.
I bushhogged the plot a couple of days ago. Plan on spraying the beginning of next week.

Curious on what everyone's math is. A quick check of the numbers says in our 25 gallon sprayer, I need 4 oz of Imox and 2.5 quarts of Nitro Surf to cover 33,000 sq ft.(3/4 acre) Sound right?

It has been a long day, but I think you only need 3 pints of nitro surf. The rest of it sounds right. Like I said don't go by me as I have had a long day and my brain is fried. When I start reading labels, I tend to get more confused. LOL.

DOing some google searches it seems like alot of people are mixing 4-5 oz per 25 gallon of water and doing an acre, so for 3/4 you could probably go down to 20 gallon and use 2.5 pints of nitrosurf. I would probably use 4 oz of imox.

Well I sprayed my clover plot tonight. FIrst I put down some fertilizer and then I sprayed. I had got some dye to put in so I could see where I sprayed. It worked well. The downside is I ended up getting some on the sprayer and my back was blue and not to mention my hands because the bottle cap was leaking. LOL. Only good thing is dawn dishwashing soap eventually takes it off.

If I read the Raptor label, it calls for the following:

"Nitrogen Fertilizer
Recommended nitrogen-based fertilizers include liquid fertilizers [such as liquid ammonium sulfate (AMS), 28% N, 32% N, or 10-34-0] at 2.5 gallons/100 gallons of spray solution. Instead of liquid fertilizer, spray-grade ammonium sulfate may be used at 12 to 15 pounds/100 gallons of spray solution"

Nitro-surf is 28%. So if I divide 100 gallons by 4, that gets me to 25. 2.5 gallons/4 is 0.625 gallons, which is 2.5 QUARTS, or 5 pints. The nitrosurf label calls 3 pints per 25 gallons. Hmmm. Anyone out there ever spray Raptor?

I just put in what the nitro-surf recommeded. I think the imox label says to use what is recommended by the nitro surf.

Anyway I realized this morning that I had a brain fart in my rush last night to hurry up and get it done. I ended up putting in 2x as much of the imox. The nitro-surf was correct. Oh well. Good thing it was only a half-acre so I didn't waste too much money. LOL.

I just read through the label on Keystone's site, and it doesn't mention anything about Nitro-surf or a Nitrogen based adjuvant. The specs tab on the Keystone page say the following, pasted below. My guess is following the Raptor label is probably smartest, although not entirely required. Imox seems to be labelled mostly for aquatic use.

Imox Herbicide
Approximate use rate for Hay (Clover, Alfalfa, and Chicory, but not Grass Hay): 4-6 ounces per acre plus approximately 2-3 pints per acre Nitro-Surf (see label for exact use rate, varies by gallons per acre of application).
