Has anyone sprayed Trimec Plus with a PG?

How did it work?

Did you get even coverage?

Did the pump handle it?

Did you get control of crab grass?

Did you get control of nut sedge?

Did your lawns show some yellowing?

Thanks in advance.

Dan, have you tried it in the Perma Green? I was wondering too because the label states to use it in a gallon of water or more. Tim

the 'plus' in trimec plus is MSMA and I'd be concerned with the low water volume.

Lush states the label recommends a gallon or more (thats per 1000 sf i assume) Soooo, that rules out the PG, right?

why would it rule out the perma green, you would mix in a larger tank and use the nurse tank set up. Then your in business.

I am not crazy about MSMA for crab control, or for nutsedge control for that matter. I would not spray MSMA out of my z-spray, unless I was ready for the burn you will most likely see.

The label states for use under 80 degrees . I am waiting to use it, probably this week.

if the product label states 1 gal per 1000sf (i dont use the product so i dont know the label, i'm just going by what another member stated was on the label) And the PG treats about 4000 sf with one gallon.......then you'd be breaking the law, right?

The label on Plus says that you should not use the product if you can not live with stress. It will yellow up the lawn. If you can stand it the lawn will come back.

I have not tried it, and I don't think I will.

The label does say that you need one gallon per 1000, but I was curious to see if anyone was using it anyway.

We made do by using hand cans of Drive and Manage to treat the crab and sedge. Since our air temps have been so high for the last few weeks, Trimec Plus wasn't really an option anyway.

I am tempted to try it on a lawn that is covered with crabgrass but I just don't think I will. Might try it on a part of my lawn but that might be it. It is getting cooler here anyways so the results might be ok. My PG ultra treats 3k/gal

I have sprayed my own mix of trimec and msma in our pg and got yellowing in the tire tracks only.I use more msma in mine than tr plus.Smooth turf tires might stop that but i doubt it.If the pg sprayed off the back instead of the front it would probably be ok

I have put MSMA in my PG. It worked perfect for me but I think its a bit risky for High end yards. I used 16 oz MSMA in a full tank on an 85 degree day and used the nozzles for High Gear but rode in low gear. This gives you much more water that you need for this. It fried the grassy weeds without hardly yellowing the grass. The trick is to fertilize simultaneously. The will think your magic. You can use a little liquid ferromec to help with the greenup also.
