    In your experience does Celsius yellow zoysia very bad. I know it does bermuda more so than st aug. Was thinking about a max rate app on a nice zoysia lawn but we are going to have cooler temps which I know will slow the grass down and didn't want to end up with a sick looking lawn for an extended period of time.

    Ar,
    What is it up there that requires Celcius??
    I haven't used it yet, because what I am having problems with requires Certainty!

    I hit preemerge two weeks ago with vessel and coron for uptake........slightly yellowed out both types of grasses. Thank goodness for the Issac rains and the other rain last week.
    All week the lawns have grown 45% more than before the storms. Dang!! This week we busted our butts after the holiday!!

    I have a high end nice zoysia lawn with an area of virginia buttonweed. I have hit with metsulfuron and certainty. Thought I would give it a shot of max rate Celsius but didn't want to yellow it bad and with the upcoming cool weather not being able to outgrow the yellow.

    Apply some feet with iron or iron only when applied.

    No Thanks, I will use the Z Spray. Too lazy to use feet.

    Why not use a 3way or straight 2-4-D?

    From what I know they are not that effective on buttonweed.
