Has anyone use the crabgrass killer Acclaim. If so, does it work good? And how much does it cost? I'm hearing that its expensive.

I not possitive but i think io remember it being like 110 bucks a quart! Why spend all that money..... i use trimec plus for crabgrass and nutsedge and it yellows in about a week to 10 days. its $45 bucks a gallon.

Trimec Plus (MSMA) works poorly on crabgrass and requires repeated applications. It turns crabgrass yellow, makes it more noticeable, discolors turf if not precisely applied or too dry and will require 2 follow-up applications this time of the year.

Cost should be based on cost per 1000 sq, not the amount of water you purchase with your product.

bob, your best choice for crabgrass is Drive 75. It costs $2.00/1000, turns crabgrass purple/brown and gives complete control in 1 application with no turfgrass discoloration.

btw: You're required to have your name/phone number on your vehicle when transporting pesticides for commercial use.

I stopped at Lesco today and they showed me the Drive product. I'm told it works good in the beginning and full grown stages of crabgrass. The price was $85 for a bottle about the size of a 20 oz soda.. 1/3 ounce for a gallon.
