    I currently use Blindside. I'm wanting to learn 3-4 different post products. Which ones do you all suggest having for all around warm season grasses? I'm seeing a lot of: Orchard grass, Clover, Sedge, Annual Bluegrass, Florida Pulsey, Dollarweed, Asparagus Fern. A few products that comes to mind:
    #1. MSM Turf
    #2. Celcius
    #3. Speedzone
    #4. Ornanmec

    Thanks,

    Can't use Ornanmec on southern grasses can you? MSM and Speedzone are my go herbicides. Celcius later in year.

    I used Dismiss on my 1st round this year, first time I've used it on this round worked great.

    My other staples are MSM, Certainty for all warm season.

    Grass specific; Sethoxydim, Quinclorac, Triclopyr

    I was given the suggestion to use msm at a lower rate as a "kicker" along with my round 2 pre ems yo knock out a lot of little stuff that can't really be seen too well under somewhat dormant grass. Used it for the first time last year and I was impressed. I'd have to look up the rate from my sheets but it seems by round 3 my yards were clean for the most part. Never used it as a stand alone though.

    Ornanmec (Fluazifop) is safe on Zoysia. Can be used to control Bermuda in Zoysia

    For that I was broadcast app on warm turf Bermuda and zoysia only. Again it was a very low rate but tank mixed. I'd have to look it up from last year.
