    Anybody have a better cure for Fla. betony than the atrazine/2,4-D mix that has been the old standby? I get some control with this mix but it never seems to be enough. I think the best cure may be to just move away!!

    I find proper culitural and chemical pratices to keep a health lawn is the best control. You may want to add a Pre emerge to your weed control mix.

    Check a Metsulfuron label. I think it is there.

    OK! Thanks for the info and I will try the metsulfuron route. I failed to mention that I do put pendimethalin in with my atrazine and 2,4-D mix. This booger is just a real PITA!
