I trying to figure out witch herbicide should I use simazine or barricade this time of the year or just one of them? Will it hurt to use both?

Can I get a reply please?

Which witch are you inquiring about. The good witch or the bad witch. I think Dorothy killed the bad witch, so you must be inquiring about the good witch. The one that gave her the magic slippers.

we use both at this time of year ( in the same mix )

Thanks willis007 I was thinking we could use both, just making sure.

One is a pre/post and the other is a pre so they are both good.

You could also use atrizine v. simizine if you needed to.

Thanks tamadrummer how's it going down there in the sunshine state?

Its flipping hot still. I am looking forward to some real fall weather. I hate the cold but I need some cooler weather.

I am sure it is colder than heck up there.

Which have you had better results with simazine or atrazine? I have used simazine for the past couple years but have heard some good things about atrazine. Also what do you think about mixing three way in with it?

We'll this is how it works, if you can catch the lawn before anything starts to germinate you can just use simazine, but if don't catch it then you might need to put out a little 3-way. Atrazine and simazine is almost the same, you need to be a little bit more careful with atrazine because it will damage trees. Atrazine is also restricted and simazine is not. Simazine will damage small plants but not as fast. They both have their advantages. Atrazine does a better job on dichondra but, simazine does a better job on henbit.

This time of year I only run simazine and three way.

11-04-2009, 09:32 PM
Ok whatever works for you kes.

Three-Way on Centipede or St. Augustine will kill them quickly! Always mention your turf when posting as every grass reacts differently to specific herbicides. Atrazine is safe on Centipede or St. Augustine but will kill fescue or cool season grass.

This is a very important point that I am shocked that no one else asked before asking!!
Just FYI - the Atrazine will burn the hell out of a yard if your temps are too high. I know you are north of me I just do not recall how far north. So check label for directions to ensure you are within the suggested temp range. Also with th the atrazine - to ensure it is it's most effective, try to ensure that you can get three days with little moisture, rain will dilute how well it will perform. I have not used the other you stated or others suggested is similar.
Barricade is a good product but as tammadrummer stated it is PreM. vs Atrazine is a post.

Good luck
