Alligare Imox application rate is 4-6 ounces per acre so a quart would do 5-6 acres.
With this at hand, you don’t need to use another product for a clover or a alfalfa plot to kill broadleaf and grass.
However, to maximize the effectiveness of this product, you would need to mix it with a Nitrogen and Surfactant mix as well but it is quite cheap.
Here is the nitro surf:
After my order came in from Amazon. I sprayed my clover plot at home today (at night). First, I put down some fertilizer and then I sprayed.
I was playful with it so I added dye in so I could mark the area I sprayed and it produced excellent result.
However, the down side is that I ended up getting some on the sprayer and my back and palm was blue (haha) because the bottle cap was leaking.
My dishwashing soap took off the stains though in less than 5 minutes.
My Verdict: It is extremely effective at killing grasses and weeds when they’re young. As the weeds mature, the kill rate will be low. So, we recommend using it early in the season.
IMOX is eco-friendly and is safe for algae, fish, birds and aquatic invertebrates. It seems to be the only herbicide on the market that has been granted a tolerance exemption by the EPA, which means there are no food residue limits for Imox in shellfish, fish, irrigated crops or crustaceans.

Alligare Imox Herbicide Review
Alligare Imox herbicide for clover works great. But that’s not all.
This herbicide is used to control vegetation in and around aquatic and non-cropland sites including areas that may be cut for hay or grazed.
Note: This is not safe to use on grass hay.
Imox herbicide is effective at controlling grass, labeled broadleaf weeds, and boasts of a limited residual effect as well.
Imox is one thing serious home and commercial food plot growers need to have. It is safe to use on Clover, Alfalfa, and on Chicory too.
How to Use on Chicory
You should apply early post-emergence when the weeds are actively growing and when chicory has at least 2, and no more than 4, fully expanded true leaves present.
Note: Never apply it on chicory prone to stress conditions such as flooding, hail damage, drought, injury from other herbicides, or widely fluctuating temperatures, or crop injury may result.
From experience, I have found Nitrogen fertilizer (Nitro-Surf) to be really effective and improve weed control but also increases the chances of causing injury to chicory.
To understand more weeds that this herbicide will control, check the Raptor label. Also, please note that the recommended weed size for spraying is 3-4 inches. As the weeds get larger, effectiveness can diminish.
Imox is formulated to be a selective herbicide that control floating, emerged and shoreline weed species while allowing the plants of your choice multiply and grow well.
Ideal for fishing and aquatic areas, this has been used in recreational activities such as golf courses to get the best results.
I use it in my friend’s irrigation ditches and canals and too.

How It Works
Once sprayed on the weeds, Imox is absorbed via the stems, leaves, and roots. Once in, it begins to bind with an enzyme found only in plants, and not in humans, insects, mammals, birds, or insects.
Within 24 hours, sensitive plants quit growing, and then slowly break down dying as energy and food resources are finished.
How many ounces of imox per gallon of water for applying via a sprayer?
There is no one right answer. You should ready and study the label to knoe that. Yesterday I mixed one oz of 12.1% concentrate IMOX in about 150 oz of water and covered about 0.15 acres.
Does Imox kill both Broadleaf and Grasses?
Yes, but only when they are young.
Imox vs 24DB vs Clethodim
After spraying the Imox and 24DB half and half in field. The Imox has proven to be the clear winner.
In fact, the half I sprayed with Imox looks so much better and cleaner than the 24DB sides. Here are some pictures for you to judge the results.
Not the most pretty picture out there but I bet you can tell the difference. The whole field had broadleaf weeds and grasses that needed to go in the cover field.
The Imox on the right hand side did great on the weeds, the left side and 24DB not so much. The part I like most is that Imox did so well on the grass as well, no more needing to spray 24DB and then some gly.
I did use NitoSurf as the surfactant for the mix. We ran out of that though and then used AMS on the other plot we had left.
I do like the fact that Cledthodium and 24DB costs cheaper and are econlomically preffered since you can afford to purchase and use them over and over again since they are way cheaper.
