looking for a good chemical manual

Looking for something that not only helps with what chemicals kill different weeds but also temp and turf tolerance. The last few years the hot summers have played havoc on my programs. Would like to find some things for bermuda, centipede, and fescue when temps are above 90.

Heard university of georgia had a good manual.

The problem with such a book is; the Chemicals are constantly changing and the book would be out of date before it could be printed. The only way is to stay current, is by subscribing to every Green Industry Magazine and checking with every major chemical manufacture on a regular bases. Then making your own chart.

Thanks Chase for posting link, you beat me to it. To the OP, the printed version of that manual is free so you may place a call to an extension office in GA and have them send you one. My local office gave me 2 of them, one to keep in truck and one to keep in the bathroom. This book is updated every year with new chemicals and contains more information than you could learn in a year. The book even listed suggested rates for some chemicals. Fungicides are also listed in the book.

The answer to high temps and the grasses you listed is Celcius Herbicide. It won't take out most grassy weeds, but its useful nonetheless.

Your welcome Chris. I read in that book everyday since I got a copy of it. Your right there's too much info to learn in a year. Kudos to anyone who can memorize it or remember half of the info the book provides.
