Co-op wants to use Warrior @ about $4 acre.

Hefty's says to use Silencer at $1.25 acre.

Co-op says Silencer is nasty and applicator won't use it,spray plane.

If you compare the labels, Silencer is Warrior in a generic version. That is what I spray. Coop gets $200+ gallon for Warrior and Silencer is less than $90/gal and is applied at the same rate.

Haybaler, I sprayed this morning while a very light dew was on as per your recommendation of 2.5 oz/acre...I even re-calibrated my sprayer with some new nozzles and at the pressure and speed I like to operate at it came out to 14 gal./acre....appreciate the information on the leafhoppers. Now, if I could just figure out how NOT to loose so much alfalfa color here in this part of the country I would be happier.

Regards, Mike
