Celsius in the fall?

Wil Celsius be effective on weeds that have popped up in the last few weeks with the cooling temps here in the south?

When it is cool, more MSO is not a bad idea. Last year, 1% MSO was the only way I got anything controlled. 60s at night and mid 70's in the day all year long. Grass stunted, but the weeds grew like h-l.

Why use Celsius with day temperatures in to 70's? It's expensive to use, save it for warm temperature applications and use another formulation for cool weather applications; a Quicksilver & Blade combo comes to mind (both available generic).

I'm not an applicator. I have celsius for my personal use. I am not going to buy another $100 plus bottle of something when what I have works.
