    I prefer Celcius with MSO sprayed with a fan tip for Crabgrass in Bermuda.

    There is a whole other thread on this too that is just a few weeks old. Pretty much the same conclusion

    Properly applied Celsius is a big improvement over the old way unless the missile test site is a desirable look for a bermuda lawn.

    Are you at medium rate or high rate?

    I am having very good results with Celcius. I am at day 9 after application and most everything I sprayed is dying. I am noticing a little bit of yellowing in the grass where I sparyed but I am not really too concerned with it yet. I am going to have to make another pass sometime next week with it to get the stuff I missed/was to conservative on spraying.

    I prefer the medium rate for almost eveeything. That way I can blanket spray twice and be at yearly level. Every now and then if I get one that is eat up with tough stuff I will hit it with the high rate and then low a couple of weeks later. Medium rate with MSO seems to handle a lot of stuff.
