Poa control

I'm thinking of spraying simazine on bermuda grass in GA for Poa. I sprayed this past Oct but I think because of the rain we had here there was some Poa break thru. I don't normally spray simazine now. But just wondering if I did, Would this delay spring green-up in my bermuda grass this year? I just need to spot spray some areas that had some break thru. Really not many yards. Any opinions..

Glyphosate would be a much easier, more effective alternative as long as it is Only Dormant Bermuda and nothing else as far as grass types.

I have never had much luck with Atrazine or Simazine as a post control for Poa Annua. Atrazine used on Bermuda in transition scares me a helluva lot more than Glyphosate. If there is damage, it is much longer lasting. Certainty is labeled for post control of Poa(but is extremely slow in cooler temps) and of course, Revolver is labeled for it as well. Celsius and MSM are useless against Poa... Poa is not listed on the label for either and speaking from past experience, they do not work.

I've always had very good results spraying atrazine. We use it in feburary up here for round 1.

Here is the UGA recommendations. It's an iPhone app I have and it's great for weeds, disease and other turf issues.

Attached is why I am not a fan of the Roundup Treatment even on Bermuda. It was 6 degrees for 2 days straight and has been under freezing everynight for 3 weeks. And still, Bermuda is green underneath. This is not next to the house or driveway or sidewalk. It is out in the middle of the lawn.
With all of that being said, I usually still take the chance with roundup.

Not saying it will kill it, but it will damage it. Just saying you better check your bermudas before you spray them to make sure.
