grassy weeds in bermuda

any suggestions on what to spray for grassy weeds in actively growing bermuda? Not worried about setting the bermuda back a bit, just don't want to kill it. Thanks.

Avoid acclaim extra, it suppresses growth of Bermuda.
Quinclorac ( drive ) ok.
Are you targeting summer annuals?

Celcius is good for winter annuals (poa, rye, fescue)

if your worried about cost your not concerned about giving your customer the best and you are not charging enough. blindside is not for a blanket treatment. backpack it. i have one customer 130k yes 130,000 sq feet yard that after i back packed it he asked me how mush for a blanket treatment. i tried to talk him out of it but he insisted. chemical cost for his yard was $340.00 he has contracted for once each year. I charge him the extra actual chemical cost as i am already doing the application.

its just like aloft... those that want a nice yard pay for it even when it runs 4.00 per k more than the other chemicals. i treat just over 2million sq feet each cycle and just a very few of my customers have a problem if something costs more

Celsius. New customers get 2 apps in 21 days if crabgrass is a problem.

Not sure of the price for Blindside. It may be cheaper to just mix Dismiss/Mansion yourself. It's the same thing. I don't use Dismiss for sedge control. I do use Metsulfuron for broadleaf weeds, foxtail and bahiagrass though. Most of the weed controls I use for summer weeds are too expensive to broadcast so spot treatment is my typical way of applying for these weeds.

If it breaks the bank to treat for these difficult weeds then you have to charge more...
