    Any one have problems with this stuff? I have several accounts with a lot of goosegrass, and I can't seem to get rid of it. They are in bermuda lawns, and also have smooth crabgrass in them as well. I have done 2 consecutive apps. of msma (in 90deg temps) and nothing. I know drive 75 works well on crabgrass, but will get the "goose"???

    Might want to try PBI Gordon's Trimec Plus??? I know it's labeled for goosegrass and crabgrass. It can be used on Bermuda according to the label. Drive 75 is not labeled for goosegrass control.

    It looks like the chem in this is msma, for control of the grassy weeds. The other chems are for broadleaf.

    MSMA hardly phases goosegrass. Metribuzin or Illoxin are needed for control. Sencor(metribuzin) can be tank mixed with MSMA. I am not sure it Illoxin tank mixes.

    Acclaim Extra works well on Goosegrass

    Illoxan is not for residential.

    These have been shown effective, but sometimes take more than one application:

    Sencor (Metribuzin) + MSMA

    Revolver + MSMA

    Certainty + MSMA

    All of those can be used on residential.
