    I want to kick myself for not starting my Bermuda Grass control a little sooner this year and taking advantage of the Freeze.

    No Problem, you certainly have taken care of me in the past. Couple weeks ago I had planned to mix some up 12/15/10 as a matter of fact. But the weather turned bad and now we will have to wait until Bermuda is actively growing.

    BTW is you Bermuda back in the same area or a different area???? I am hoping you say a different area. If I remember correctly you told me you didn't spray all your Bermuda last year.

    Hi Gregory, I was given the Celsius WG. I believe it is the same product you are talking about. On the label it states not to use more that 0.113 OZ per K, and you mentioned you used 3OZ? Is this the same product, and at that dilution it worked? Thanks for your time,

    That is right 3 oz of Glyphosate per gallon applied at 2 gallons a thousand will brown out Bermuda Grass is a little less than 2 weeks.

    Hi Ric,
    Thanks for your reply. The problem is that I have the Bermuda grass(wild Bermuda) mixed in into the St augustine grass, and it is slowly taking over, If I Apply Glyphosate, I believe I will kill all of the St Augustine. For this reason I was recommended The celsius WG. What do you think?
