    Spot spray fescue clumps with Gly before green up starts. Celsius will not get the Poa. I have had great results with Certainty for Poa and is my pick for Sedges. I have a lot of pressure from Sedges all summer and the Certainty does great.

    Green up has already started here. What's the price on certainty?

    Nevermind, it looks pretty comparable to celcius. Also labeled for Poa control. I may go run by JDL in a little bit and see if they have some.

    If all you want to do is kill poa in Bermuda and money is no problem I would say Revolver would be best followed by certainty.
    If you are spraying for several weeds and money is a issue then I go with Celsius or Manor. It may not give you a quick kill but they will help it burn up faster and really clean a lawn up for tha money.

    What are the temps you see on Round 1? I was under the impression Celsius didn't work well at low temps.

    This is actually my first time to use Manor. I think it will help it transition faster because the lawns I sprayed a few weeks ago the Poa is lighter colored than the non sprayed lawns with a little browning on top of some. I mixed at .75 rate so I am somewhere between .75 and 1 oz per acre.

    I personally think it works fine it is just much slower than when it is hot.

    I just use Celsius for the first time today on a bermuda yard. I will post my the resolates i get on Monday. We are suppose to have 70 deg temps throughout the weekend. I sprayed 0.113/oz per 1,000. The yard had spring weeds, crabgrass, and fescue clumps, so I should get a good test on how it does on the different types of weeds. I does have a different smell to it than 3way, I was kind of wondering at first if it mixed good in my sprayer because it really doesn't change the color on the water. Then I started to smell it when I was spraying, I knew then to had mixed good.
