    I get mine at Rural king, under the Drexel brand. Its been a while since I bought any but their website will tell you the prices. I want to say maybe $15 per gallon of glypho concentrate.

    2-4-d is $30 for 2.5 gallons at dickey bub. I think farm and home was similar for gly.
    I need to get a jug too..

    Lowe's has Roundup super for $109 a gallon, it makes 50 gallons= $2.18 a gallon
    the regular 32oz concentrate is around $20 and makes 5 gallons= $4 a gallon

    This should be right in Rats wheelhouse so he can correct me if I’m wrong. But I think this “super” roundup just has 50% glyphosate as it’s active ingredient as opposed to 41% in most other glyphosate products.

    You’re not getting 50 gallons of roundup from the 1 gallon of super concentrate. Your spending A LOT more per gallon of concentrate that has slightly higher percent of the active ingredient. 1.5 gallons of other generic gly products will do the same as one gallon of the super concentrate in 50 gallons of water. But it’ll cost you less than 1/2 the money.

    Again, someone can correct me if I’m wrong. I’m no herbicide expert, but that’s what I thought the roundup super was

    I think regular roundup is only about 16% gly.
    You are correct about the generic being exponentially cheaper per mixed gallon than whatever version of Roundup you're talking about.

    per the directions on Monsanto's website
    the super @ 50.2% gly says 1.5 oz per gallon
    "One 35.2 oz. bottle makes up to 23 gallons of spray at the 1.5 fl oz./gallon rate."
    the regular @18% says 3oz per gallon
    "One quart makes up to 10 gallons of spray at the 3 oz./gal. rate"
