    I used vessel 3 way this year.. It burned my bermuda lawns, and even stressed some fescue lawns slightly. Appied at 1.1 oz per 1,000 (labeling calls for 1.1-1.5) this is during EXTREMELY wet weather.

    Then to add injury to insult.... the Kill sucks.

    Vessel certainly was inexpensive... but I'm not going to be able to use it next year. any idea's? or suggestions?

    What were the temps during that time? Was it tank mixed with another product? How much NIS did you use?

    I've used it extensively the last 2 years with no problems.

    I 1st noticed it when temps were around 70-75... the last time I sprayed it was in 80 degree weather.. borderline I know.. but the ground temp is a lot lower than that anyhow... nothing else in the mix... just vessel @ 1.1 oz per 1,000 as the lableing calls for. the only odd variable is that 9 times outta 10 the ground is saturated with water, as it has rained the day before..

    Seems to be a LOT worse on bermuda

    Those conditions should not be a problem at all on the Bermuda.

    You might consider calibrating your sprayer again to make sure you are not over applying.
