Postemergent Herbacide on Floratam

Posted this in the herbacide forum but got no answers. Since I'm in Florida thought I would try here.

Question on postemergent herbacide with floratam. Yard has a variety of broadleaf (and some mushrooms), currently 10%-15% of yard on sod installed 3 months ago.

I've seen Celsius and Blindside listed as safe for the floratam. Do you have any preference of one over the other and any tips on application? I've read to use non-ionic surfactant in some places and others said not to.

Tampa, FL area - current temp approx. 50-60 degrees at night and 70-80 degrees during the day.

Thanks for your help

Well Atrazine would likely be the safest to use. Have you considered it?

The mushrooms. Kick them. Best results. Atrizine full rate at your temp. Do not mow. Spray the weeds, leave it alone for about 2 weeks, third week you will see results. DO NOT MOW UNTIL YOU SEE HAVE RESULTS. It's getting colder soon, certain weeds, different result time frame. Be patient.

Don't forget your follow-up application should be safe at 3 week's. THIS APPLICATION MOST IMPORTANT!
