    I have recently aquired my herbicide license and have been studying and practicing on my own lawn for over a year. I am about to start a program with my mowing customers for weed control. See what you think and suggest.
    I am located in South Arkansas and am dealing with Bermuda, Zoysia, St Augustine & Centipede.

    Sept 1-PreEmergent Simazine, Clean up spray if needed

    Nov-Dec 2nd Round of Simazine

    Late Feb-Pre Pendimethalin, Post cleanup if needed

    April-May Post broadleaf as needed

    Late May-June 2nd round of Pendimethalin

    June-Post as needed

    Ar,
    Pick you up some Prodiamine too. It has a longer life than Pendimethalin but not as long of a label.
    Buy you some products to control Nutsedge, globe sedge!
    Throw in there a regimine for either sulfur or Lime. Gypsom if too salty! Check the pH and macronutrients.

    Is there a pre that controls sedges? I plan on using Certainty for post sedge. When do you usually hit the sedge? I know you are about 2 weeks behind me timing wise. Do you use 1 app of Prodiamine in the spring or split it into 2 for the summer? Thanks for the response.
