For complete details see your retailer or visit

*The Roundup Transorb® HC, Roundup Ultra2®, HEAT and DISTINCT offer off-invoice discount acres will be calculated using the following label rates: One case of HEAT = 640 acres (one jug of HEAT = 80 acres), one case of DISTINCT = 80 acres (one jug of DISTINCT = 40 acres), Roundup Transorb HC 0.67L = 1 acre (10L = 15acres, 115 L = 172 acres, 450L = 675 acres, 800L = 1,200 acres), Roundup Ultra2 0.67L = 1 acre (10L = 15acres, 115 L = 172 acres, 450L = 675 acres, 800L = 1,200 acres).
