Tempatures are in the 80's is it to hot to apply Momentum with a low volume sprayer? A Perma Green Ultra to be exact. Don't want to burn lawns. Or would 3 way be better to use?
Thanks

80S is probably ok for either but go to the lighter rates and make sure you don't overlap too much. Momentum will work better on the weeds as they harden off for summer.

Momentum is an Amine herbicide & stable from volatility at higher temperatures. Your limiting factor is stress on the turf which is most dependant on grass type. Tall Fesce, Ryegrass & Bluegrass don't mind warm weather herbicide sprays. But watch the fine Fescues & Bents.

Momentum is a ester formulation.

we have just switched to Momentum for our second round of treatments here in southern KY. our temps have been 85+ for two weeks now and have had no problem. we were using Threeway Esther 2 for our first round.

85 in May with soil moisture is better than 85 in August with dry soil.
