    Default Cheaper Generic Roundup

    I know that a lot of places have been selling generic Roundup-Pro under numerous names for a couple of years now, but for some it was a long drive to a place that had it. The chemical name to look for (as most of you already know) is Glyphosate 41% with surficant. I noticed a 2 1/2 gal. container of it at Lowes recently for $69.

    You can buy generics just about everywhere. Most farm stores push the generic because it is cheaper to have on hand. Personally, I use Drexel Imitator Plus. Drexel - Product Detail

    I just bought 2 1/2 gallons of Honcho Plus fromcooperseeds.com - Seeds, Gifts, Bird Feeders & Supplies, Do-It-Yourself Pest Control for $49.95. It is 41% and made by the same company that makes Roundup. They had very fast delivery.

    Shipping was $15.28 to Louisiana. Out west will probably be more.

    I have bought numerous things from this man, all good.
    Here is his ebay store eBay Store - Pest Control: Insecticides, Flying Insect Baits, Rat Mouse
    I am using RAZOR PRO WEED KILLER HERBICIDE 41% Glyphosate 5 gal. from him, seems identical to Round up. Below is what it cost me, with shipping to OH. He is in PA.



    Shipping cost for 2.5 gallons would be $17.20 and shipping for 5 gallons would be $23.53 The 2.5 gallon would be $50.95 + $17.20 = $68.15
    5 gallons would be $91.90 + $23.53 = $115.43

    I have also bought Bifen IT, a wonderful long lasting insecticide.

    I don't know what's up with our local feed/seed/tack store. They're still trying to stock only the Roundup. There was no competition for about 35 miles, so I guess they were sticking to the cash cow. With Lowes now carrying the generic, maybe the feed & seed will too.

    Thanks tallyho8 & LMTC for the tips!

    Go to an actual fertilizer/chemical dealer and you will find lots of options. Here they stock the name brand and the off brands but push the off brand.

    The small feed/tack stores do not carry a big inventory of products so I wouldn't expect them to have a large selection of anything. TSC carries a couple generics but I have never paid much attention to them. I think they have Touchdown which is a good generic.
