View Full Version : Sandspurs are coming up- HELP

06-04-2011, 11:23 PM
I am seeing a ton of juvenile san spurs coming up on a few properties. What to you guys recommend to spray/eradicate them. I feel like I am spreading them unless I clean my tires after each place. What about Celsius with a sticker as a spot spray. Nobody likes a sandspur.
What do y'all think?

Sandspurs require an integrated approach including good fertilization, irrigation management, then the right herbicides. Get the first two in order, then Image or Celsius will work on emerged sandspur, Surflan or Pendulum for the stuff coming up from seed.

Depending on the Turf there are many Herbicides that control Sand spurs. St Augustine Weed & Feed with Atrazine works well as both a Post and Pre Emerge.

Bahia or Bermuda are tolerant of 0.25 Oz of Glyphosate per thousand that will in fact kill sand spurs and not turf.

Nothing works better to control weeds than a health Turf. Sand Spurs control is a on going process of managing a healthy turf.
