Dismiss out of a PG Mag

Wondering if running a tank of Dismiss will be effective out of a PG Magnum?
I have a new customer that has a lawn pretty infested with nutsedge. Rather than just tell him 'we'll hit it next year', I would like to kill most of this stuff down to the nutlets now, then watch his amazement at his lawn next year

I can also backpack spot spray but if calibration of amount is key, like Certainty, etc, a backpack will not be a very good way to go IMO.

Thanks

Should work fine. It will be cool this week though. Nutsedge disappears when the night temps fall below 50. Either way it will be gone.
And return next year when the temp hits about 85.
Be ready next year.

I sprayed it out my T 3000 and it worked fine just remember it will turn a lot of cool season grass yellow for couple weeks. The label said it might and it did

A couple weeks ago I pulled up to a house. Lady across the street was screaming at the top of her lungs at the spray tech because her grass was yellow and looked like he sprayed roundup. As I finished he was on the phone. By the time we closed the door to the enclosed he was off. Asked what that was about. I chuckled a bit when he told me. I asked if he shown her the label. He was waiting for one from another tech. Exchanged a few words and on the way we went. I had a voice mail from the lady and explained it will happen even though I'm newly certified (I didn't tell her that). She calmed down some. Then said can I call you back in amin. I need to call the police and cancel the call. I was shocked and said OK. She called and said she gave them a try for this season. I said that's fine and if she's not happy to just call. Gave her my email and web.

I wouldn't take on any customer who chooses to berate their lawn guy without knowing all the facts first. Don't go near this lady, trust me.

Another question as I am set to apply Dismiss to a lawn tomorrow, for Yellow Nutsedge.
I calculated out, for my PG machine, that I can mix 1/4 to 1/2 oz of this product per gallon (low rate/high rate) to apply the correct amount of AI per K. For Yellow Nutsedge, should I plan on using the low rate, or the high rate? I am doing one app only, so I would assume I would use the high rate?

Also, plan to tank mix this with 3way amine. Label says should be ok. Any issues?

When we used Dismiss we sprayed 3 way with it and it worked fine but if I remember right the label said not to use a surfactant with it
