    When used together are there any issues? I don't think I would notice any now since everything is dormant but just curious.

    Need the manor on some properties for Bahia.

    Manor will sure smoke Bahia but then maybe that is what he wants to do.

    I actually do. But it's to get rid of it. I mean to say bremuda. I'm trying to get rid of some Bahia on some of our bremuda properties. Just wondering if there are any issues mixing the two when needed.

    I have used Manor and Celsius in the same application for control of broadleaf/grassy weeds. The effect of the two is multiplicative. 2+2 might equal 5 on both weeds and desirable grasses. In dormant grass, that is less of an issue.

    Just wondering what you are trying to eliminate besides the bahia that requires both? I might want to use this combo. At what rates do you use when both are applied together?

    GD, care to chime in?

    I use a Celsius+Manor mix when there are both grassy and broadleaf weeds to remove. Celsius is not particularly strong on spurges and certain leguminous weeds. 1/2 oz Manor and 3 oz Celsius are the rates I use.

    Can we assume that is your acre rate since you didn't list the area????

    Manor is one Oz on an acre of St Augustine and Celsius is 4.9 Oz per acre. 1/2 oz of Manor and 3 Oz Celsius is half rate on each which together should be very strong.

    I have used both on a regular bases but never together.

    Yes it is by acre, not by gallon. :eek: Celsius by itself is rather damaging to paspalum spp, used with Manor, the effect should be magnified. I have never used a full ounce of Manor. My proximity to desirable trees and shrubs makes me hesitant to do so.
