Tenacity, good idea, would you apply pre plant or after seed germinates?

So a triazine such as metsulfuron would not affect new seedlings? I read the label and it mentions new landscape plantings but not grass seed. Just wondering since I tend to use metsulfuron a lot.
No bermuda. It is faster growing than the centipede and if it does not die out or get choked out, what an expensive mess to kill off. I would use the Tenacity as the preemergent over the seeded area, with the ability to apply two more 4 oz application if needed. Metsulfuron should be saved for when the centipede has been growing for at least a year. I would consider milder products like Quicksilver for broadleaf weed control during grow in.
