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

    I used it two weeks ago and it worked great. High 50,s/60s@night and mid 70s during the day.

    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.
