Dismiss for clover

I did a search but didn't come up with anything. Anyone know how well Dismiss works on clover? I'm looking to consolidate my material list and it would be nice to just have one material for spot spraying post-broadleaf control and sedges.

I have been using Momentum with a splash of octane for clover and seems to work good.

Dang, Momentum whacks just about any braodleaf. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it's registered for St. Augustine but it is for Centipede which is the majority of my work. Not real crazy about using a danger label product. I looked at Octane last year but never tried it. I think I'll pick some up this time and give it a try. I glanced over the label and didn't see a temperature restriction which if I remember right is why I was looking at it last year.

PHS,
Here's my lineup for spot spraying. It's good for bermuda,zoysia St. Aug and Centipede. All of which I spray here. I use Manor for all broadleafs. It works great on all of them including Virginia Buttonweed. I don't know if you have a problem wiith that one but we do here. It is the only weed I have ever sprayed with R-UP that everything around it dies except for it...no joke. I use the sedgehammer for purple,yellow nutsedge Kyllinga and any other sedge out there. Both of these products are safe for all 4 grass types. I do not tank mix them due to the extreme expense. I only use them in back pack or hand sprayer. Manor also has the added benefit of knocking out Foxtail and Bahiagrass...So for the most part I am taking care of 98% of my weeds with 2 sprayers. It's a little more expensive on the front end but it saves time which as we all know= $$$$. Maybe this will help you.

Octane is labeled for St Augustine and clover is on the label.

momentum and octane won't get sedges, I think that was the original question, if you want to get sedges and broadleaf the most cost effective for me is Q4 and it gets mature crabgrass, I usually go about a gallon an acre it works out to be 115-120/acre that combo is pretty hard to beat once you do the math and look at buying the products seperate.

Ted: Don't intended to Hi-Jack. What do you use for "Creeping Charlie" in Centipede and St. Augustine? Tried Sedgehammer, Vantage, Dismiss, Atrazine, Image--Nothing Works. I have Southern Ag's "Weed Killer with Trimec". but afraid to use it, eventhough the label states "Safe for St. Augustine and Centipede"

Ted, The mix rates for manor are super low, if mixing into a backpack sprayer are you using a small graduated cylinder or something like that to measure the amount?

VBtnweed can be a big problem here too. White clover, spurges, and doveweed are very common. Dollarweed and dog fennel can be problematic. Purple nutsedge and green kylinga are everywhere. Dallisgrass, junglerice, bahia, foxtail, and sometimes signalgrass are my narrowleaf headaches along with bermuda and St. Augustine intrusion from yard to yard.

Q4 would be a great material to have but it looks like Bermuda is the only warm season grass it's registered for. I only have a few bermuda lawns.

PHS: Dismiss is great on Sedges--Did a lot of test last year.
