Weeds Were Taking Over
By Natalie in Kingsland, TX on March 2, 2013
Drought conditions continue in Central Texas, which has taken a toll on my once beautiful St. Augustine grass. Each year more and more weeds have popped up to the point that I was afraid that the St. Augustine had been choked completely out. The types of weeds were also of a variety ranging from the usual dandelions with and without thorns to all kinds of creeping ones like chickweed and hen pen. I had to find something that actually worked so I relied upon some advise from our local county extension agent. He highly recommended a post-emergient called Trimec. With some hesitation, I ordered Trimec. It's been two weeks since I applied it to my entire yard and it is very evident that Trimec works!

Absolutely knocked the weeds down..!! This product lived up to my expectations and more. Weeds that EndRun had little affect on, felt the power of 992 within hours after application. *** If you have tough weeds in your yard, Trimec 992 will solve your problem in one application.

I'm in Southern California and have Bermuda grass with that devil oxalis weed since buying the house in '94. Had not been able to kill it off with anything until now with Trimec 992. Husband and I applied it with the hose end sprayer also ordered from here. Immediate results! It did not harm the lawn. Will be putting down a second application this weekend and spot treating thereafter - if necessary, but doubt it will be needed. You can do a second application in 3 weeks. We are SO thrilled with this stuff - it is well worth the money. You will not be disappointed. Be advised it is a very strong pro formula. Would suggest wearing a mask to cover nose and mouth so you're not getting the fumes during application.

Works on cool season grass
By Ross in Iowa on May 28, 2014
I bought this product a year ago and used in in the fall to spot spray some thistles. It worked great and killed them off completely in about 10 days. I just used it this spring for dandelion, plantain, clover and other lawn weeds. The dandelions began to curl in about a day and a half. I sprayed when it was a bit windy and I believe it affected the overall performance. I resprayed on a calmer day 3 weeks later and now everything that was left from the first application is starting to wilt. I mixed it at the 1.5oz/1000 sq. ft. rate. I will definitely be buying this product again but for my ditches that get mowed only a few times a season I may need something stronger as the weeds are much more established.

Works well but not a silver bullet
By Lew in North Carolina on April 6, 2014
Kills all the weeds it says it will. Also seems to kill wild onion. But weeds being weeds, expect to use this product twice a year for best result and know that it kills some weeds faster than others. Does not kill crabgrass unfortuately.

2,4-D alone would not kill my white clover. I used Trimec 992 in my 15-gal ATV sprayer and it worked great - no more clover. It is my go-to herbicide from now on...

I notice that some weeds take longer to die than other but eventually they all die (broad-leaf only). I used tow behind sprayer to apply. I suggest using a mask while applying though

I have just sprayed once and things are dying that I wanted! I may have to hit it again when the wind is a slight breeze as I was very cautious the first time what with the wind blowing a bit.

Kills broadleaf weeds and even some others that surprised
By Lew in Hickory, NC on November 11, 2014
Product arrives quickly. Works fast and, even killed the wild onion for the summer, at least in my lawn anyway (2.5 acres of fescue and you name it). Broadleafs die in 1-2 days. Bam! I apply with a 25 gal., tow behind JD boom sprayer.
Quick acting yet durable
By Samuel in Funk, Ohio on March 31, 2015
Knocks them down, keeps them down, down and out. The extra 24D boosts the speedy epinasty of dandelion which is a keep spring nuisance. Once correctly applied its a by gone issue of broadleaf weeds. More will show up from neighbors yards yet Trimec 992 does the job.
By Dee in birmingham on April 7, 2015
Excellent product! Results seen in hours. Kills nearly every weed except some bluegrass. Combine with quicksilver for even better results.

Bob from Eminence, Mo. asked:
QTwo questions. I need a good broad-spectrum herbicide to spot spray 15 acres with a 25 ga. sprayer.
My field is mostly tall fescue. Lots of various weeds - tall and short. 'Was looking at Trimec 992, but wasn't sure. Also could not figure out mix ratio, product per 25 ga. water. Have alot to do, so economy is an issue, too. And would a surfactant help what ever product you recommend? Alot of info, I know, but thanks....
ATrimec 992 would be a good general use broadleaf weed herbicide. You will need to use up to 4.0 pints per acre. When dealing with herbicides the amount of water you use isn't very important as water just acts the carrier. You just need to make sure you are getting the correct amount of product over the recommended amount of space. We would recommend using 1.5 fl oz of Trimec in 1 gallon of water over 1,000 sq ft to help make the application a little easier to figure out. Trimec 992 does not require you to add a surfactant.

Ashish from Flemington, Nj asked:
QYou have recommended using 1.5 fl oz of Trimec in 1 gallon of water over 1,000 sq ft. That works out to about You have recommended using 1.5 fl oz of Trimec in 1 gallon of water over 1,000 sq ft. That works out to about 42 gallons per acre. I have a 15 gallon sprayer, so I wanted to know if I could mix 4 pints of Trimec in 15 gallons of water and distribute it evenly across my 1 acre lawn? Would that be fine? Is that too little water?
ATrimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide is mixed at 1.5 fl oz per gallon of water. It will take 4 pints to treat an acre. Herbicides do not give a water amount. They only tell you how much of the product to apply over 1000 square feet. The amount of water is dependent on how ever much water it takes for you to walk 1000 square feet. Whether you place the amount of product per 1000 square feet in a gallon of water or 10 gallons of water, it does not matter, just as long as that amount of product is distributed over the 1000 square feet.

Robert from Elberfeld Indiana asked:
QIs it safe to use a high nitrogen fertilizer with Trimec 992 on corn?
A While Trimec 992 may be compatible with a variety of liquid fertilizers, you should not use Trimec 992 on corn or any other edible crops. Be sure to perform a compatability test before spraying multiple products together. You can view more details about this application on the product label.

Amber from Harvey Nd asked:
QI need to spray dandelions that are around junipers, is it okay to use Trimec 992 as long as I do not directly spray the junipers?
Trimec 992 product label does not clarify that it will be completely safe to apply around junipers so we would not recommend this application. For broadleaf weed applications over junipers, we would suggest you apply Lontrel Turf and Ornamental. It is a selective post-emergent herbicide that controls certain broad-leaf weeds in turf and certain ornamental plantings, such as conifers and non-leguminous woody species, in landscapes and nurseries. It states on the product label that an over spray on junipers is tolerable.

Sherrie from Belton, Tx asked:
QHow soon can grass seed be sown after application of Trimec 992 herbicide?
I have a yard completely overgrown by nutsedge and bur clover. After it all dies, all that will be left is sparse ryegrass. I would like to plant buffalograss because this is a home for sale and I don't want a lot of care needed this summer. How soon can I sow seed after applying?
A Areas treated with Trimec 992 may be reseeded after 3 weeks. After you have put down new seed, you should wait until after the second mowing to new seedlings to use Trimec 992.
March 31, 2015
Ron from Berea, Ky asked:
QShould I hold off treating with Trimec 992 Herbicide if there is rain in the forecast?
A Yes, if there's rainfall in the forecast then you should wait to apply Trimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide at least 24 hours. The label states that it is rainfast in 8 hours but to not apply it immediately before rainfall.

Rob from Milwaukee, Wi asked:
QWhat is the best product to get rid of yellow clover -- Trimec 992 or Fertilome Weed Out?
Trimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide would be the best depending on what type of turf you have. please check the Product label to ensure this product will not harm your type of turf.
August 15, 2014
Bill from Willow Spring, Nc asked:
QWhat is the mechanism that actually kills the weeds?
I am using a Fertilome product that contains Trimec. I notice that it beads up on the plant leaves. I'm afraid that it needs something to break through the leaf surface (surfactant) and is not doing it. Does Trimec kill similar to Roundup?
A Trimec 992 Broadleaf Herbicide has three different active ingredients that work differently but work exceptionally well together. 2,4-D and MCPP-p are an auxin- type herbicide which is a class of plant growth regulators. It is absorbed through the leaves and is translocates to the growing points of the plants, causing weed stems to curl and twist, withering, and eventual death. Lastly, the Dicamba is absorbed through the leaves and roots and has multiple modes of actions for hard to kill broadleaf weeds.

Rick from Merton Wi asked:
QI have a Stihl 450 blower/mister and was wondering if I could spray the Trimec 992 with it?
I would use the 1.5 oz to 1 gal per 1000sq feet
A We do not recommend applying Trimec 992 in a mist blower. It should be applied using a hand held sprayer or backpack sprayer so that you have a uniform coverage on the turfgrass.
