Dichondra in cool season and warm season turf

I have a client that has dichondra coming up in their yard and I was wondering what you guys would recommend for controlling it in cool season grass.

I also have some coming up in a bermuda lawn as well if you could help with that.

I am licensed.

i spot sprayed, with celsius, a 2x3 ft. area of dichondra growing in st. augustine last tuesday.went by to pick up my check today and it looked as healthy as it did before i sprayed. dollarweed was starting to yellow. i will hit it in a month with trimec southern if nothing happens. it was mixed at the high rate, 3.2 grams to the gallon. i had some left from spot spraying chamber bitter and doveweed from different account. good luck.

jds,

Thx for the info. I noticed on the label it says it will take two applications, so hopefully it will knock it out then for you! let me know how it goes.

Celsius does not control dichondra but it is on label. We mainly use atrazine to control it in warm season grasses. Make sure you read label and follow all procedures with atrazine!

Celcius works great on about anything its labeled for. the key to celcius is using surfactant and being patient. Keep in mind this time of year temps are dropping and celcius works off of heat.

I assure you If Celsius is mixed the proper way according to label it won't even remotely control dichondra. Dichondra is on the label. Not arguing with you but I have use Celsius for 2 years now with 3 different techs including myself and it is a good herbicide for warm season grasses in heat but doesn't control everything that is on label. Very slow product!

If your tank mix sat for more than 2-3 days forget Celcius working on just about anything.
