When I first got into the business, the only broadleaf weed controls available were the Trimec products, Banvel or 2,4-D. I once applied Trimec Southern at the centipede grass rate. That application was a total failure. Not only did it yellow and damage the centipede, it also failed to kill the weeds. Celsius, or even the 0.25-0.5 oz rate of Manor is now my go to for centipede weed control. The only place I would consider Trimec is on zoysia or bermuda as a cheap application. Those are the only grasses that tolerate rates that provide acceptable weed control.
