    Yes, I am a licensed applicator. Would like input from the more experienced applicators as to the best post emergent for grassy weeds in Bermuda and centipede lawns.Any constructive input would be greatly appreciated.

    Speed Zone or Super Tri-mec

    Whatever is legal in your area

    The old faithfuls are 3 way or bentgrass select. Not had much luck with Bentgrass select

    Revolver works excellent to clean up poa or perennial rye in bermuda.(Lesco carries it) It gives post control and some pre-emerge control. DO NOT USE SPEEDZONE or any 24d ester on bermuda for grass control. They are great for broadleafs, but will set your bermuda back at least a month if applied any time after Feb. 1st here in southeast. NO ESTERS ON BERMUDA DURING TRANSITION OR ANY TIME IN MY OPINION. Also, roundup applied at 40ozs/acre in January cleans up most grasses and broadleaf(except onions). It does not matter if it is cold, it will kick in when it warms up!!!It will not damage the bermuda as long as you do it while bermuda has no green stolons and before feb 15th in southeast. Dicamba does a good job on broadleaf with little setback of bermuda. Good rule of thumb is apply no pesticides to bermuda right befroe and during greenup. Spray it when its cold or growing bold! Hope this helps. Have no clue on centipede. None here in Nashville, TN. HOPE THIS HELPS!!

    Been using a three-way/quicksilver/spreader-sticker combo for bermuda and centipede. Just don't do it on St. Augustine.
