    Has anyone heard if sulfentrazone and trimec is available on a fertilizer prill?Currently I'm using Lesco's 21-0-11E with momentum but it has its limitations, obviously I have to put it down when its wet and then its not rain-fast for 48 hours. Don't get me wrong it works great but it's hard to time and if the rain washes it off I'm not getting much systemic control. I heard from a buddy of mine in Georgia that this combo product was available and would give me the systemic control I'm looking for but I haven't been able to find it as of yet. Anyone else heard of this or is he just pulling my leg? Also, if anyone has any suggestions other then spraying let me know, haven't got enough saved for the Permagreen yet.

    So far I believe that sulfentrazone is still only available for Agriculture uses. Check the label for Spartan by FMC. http://www.cdms.net/manuf/products.asp?product=Spartan

    Lesco has always had a problem getting their hands on a decent granular post emergent "Weed&Feed". If better cool season efficacy is desired you might look into these:

    Lebanon's 19-0-6 plus Confront 3 (2,4-D, Triclopyr & Fluroxypryr) might be the best non-clopyralid post-emergent right now.

    But there are other good Weed & Feeds out there.

    For non-residential there is still Clopyralid:

    Your buddy in GA might be dealing with a warm season grasses so he has some choices that us cool season growers do not.

    I know that you didn't want to hear any liquid suggestions, but why not a backpack or tank sprayer? You will save money and reduce chemical use. You can buy the sulfentrazone as Dismiss and mix it with 3 way or buy Q4 which has sulfentrazone as one of the 4 parts.

    Call you Turfgrass, Inc. rep in Grand Rapids. We carry Andersons products. With any w&f you have your limitations, so don't think this product is going to solve all of your problems. The post that mentioned liquid is the answer. I have sold roughly 3-400 gallons of Surge this year and have had great results. Great on Ground Ivy, Nut Sedge and commons. The label states Nut Sedge suppression, I beg to differ. 1 week it is smoked. Surge has an Ester sister called Speedzone for cooler weather.
