Quick question

What preemerge can I use to control spotted spurge? I have tried pre-m and gallery. Gallery did a better job.

This older thread is a good discussion of spurge control. I was checking facts on the response I planned to write whenI found this, which is more complete.

Re. the Spotted Spurge... is there a real solution? An economically feasible solution? Is Gallery the key? Banvel was listed in the linked thread? Can this be used on ornamental turf/lawns?

To me, Q4 is too pricey. Same with a product like Chaser. Speedzone looks to be essentially the same as Surge, which we use, with limited success. Trimec/2,4-D won't touch it. We tried adding Quicksilver (Carfentrazone) or Octane (Pyraflufen Ethyl) and even with these "kickers" I did not see satisfactory results.

I recently re-treated some gravel with Glyphosate and Pendulum and had what appeared to be a complete kill. Checked back on it yesterday and guess what I saw, hundreds of little baby Spurge plants popping back up to laugh at me.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Gallery is the only pre that is likely to prevent spurge. If you didn't like the cost of the selective post products, you won't like the cost of gallery(100+/acre). For a post on bermuda, I like metsulfuron with li700 as the surfactant.
