Anyone know of a cheap place for clethodim on the southwest side of Nashville? At this point it looks like I have to run all the way up to Clarksville (Rural King) to get anything reasonable and the Dickson Farmer's Coop is pretty proud of their stuff. Thanks.

I usually order mine online and typically have it in a just a few days (if you aren't pressed for time). It ends up being less expensive especially when considering fuel/time if you have to travel to a distant co-op.

Boll Weevil, What's a good online source for it?

As for what it does, it is to kill grasses in a clover field.

I get mine from ruralking.com with the price/gallon being waaaaaaay less than you could ever buy from local feed or farm supply stores.

Does clet require surfactant? If so, what's the typical price and where do you guys order it from?

It certainly helps when it comes to assisting the chemical in adhering to the plant surface. On the cheap, I get the biggest bottles of Ajax dish soap I can find at Dollar General or WalMart...probably like 64oz jugs. Squirt it in your tank AFTER adding your chemical and water or else all the bubbles won't let you fill up completely.

By the time you reach your spraying destination everything will have mixed up nicely and the droplets will stick/spread on whatever they hit versus beading up and running off.

Clethodim kills grasses in clover.

This would work but so would spraying Round-Up or any of the generic glyphosphates and they are a lot cheaper than clethodime. Once the glyphosphate kills the grass, weeds will fill in anyway.

I get my clethodime from Ruralking.com also. I get the 2 1/2 gallon jug for $145 and it lasts several seasons.

Taking a motorcycle ride up to the Rural King in Clarksville this afternoon after work to get a gallon or two. Should be a nice 100 mile round trip. Cheaper than UPS Ground delivery and a lot more fun!

Clethodim is not more expensive than glyphosate PER ACRE. Max legal rate for clethodim is 16 oz/acre. That 2.5 gall jug will do 20 acres at $7.25/acre. Glyphosate will cost ~$50/2.5 gallons. at a 2qt/acre rate, you are spending $10/acre in chemical. Clethodim will need nonionic surfactant, but that adds very little to the cost per acre($0.25 or less). Surfactant comes premixed into most glyphosate products.
