One more question from me. Since products like Rodeo require a surfactant, why don't they just put it in there in the first place? Is it different applications require different surfactants or quantities of surfactant?


Bump....anybody know the answer to this question?


There are at least three possible reasons. 1) Different uses require different surfactants. 2) The formulation is not stable long term with the surfactant, but is OK when mixed short term in the tank. 3) The best surfactant is patented by someone other than the herbicide manufacturer.

Bill - now my previous reply to your question is one thread-screen back, but RAH made several good points.

Any willow advocates in the crowd?
I ask because I have one area near the lower ponds I'd like to screen about a forty foot section. The only sign of the outside world visible from these ponds is the roof of my neighbors pole barn. I was thinking of using a pussy willow hedge to fill this in. They would be about fifteen feet from the pond edge and the area between them and the pond will be mowed preventing them from taking over the pond edge. I have a place to get cuttings from so the price is right and I figure a six or eight foot swath of pussy willow would make a nice screen.

I would suggest corkscrew willows over the wild type due to reduced invasiveness. It is similarly short-lived though, but is easily started from cuttings.

Weeping willow is another possibility, and is longer lived but even more messy.
