    Question on postemergent herbacide with floratam. Yard has a variety of broadleaf (and some mushrooms), currently 10%-15% of yard on sod installed 3 months ago.

    I've seen Celsius and Blindside listed as safe for the floratam. Do you have any preference of one over the other and any tips on application? I've read to use non-ionic surfactant in some places and others said not to.

    Tampa, FL area - current temp approx. 50-60 degrees at night and 70-80 degrees during the day.

    Thanks for your help.

    if you use celsuis you need to add some type of surfactant.. i use MSO it seems to work better..celsuis has a limit of how much you can use per yr.. i tired blindside and really didnt care for it some others seem to love the stuff..

    first thing you need to do is find out what weed your trying to kill.. UF makes a great weed id book you might be able to get it on amazon or go to the local ext office...
