    I use MSMA and certainty mixed together for Johnson Grass but I dont know what it would do to centpede. We are all bermuda here.

    Vantage (sethoxydim) would be my first choice in centipede. If he has other turf types, it will probably take it out. Be careful in hot weather.

    Post some photos. I'd be willing to bet that it is NOT Johnson Grass but Dallis Grass. Shoot the photo as close as you can for details.
