    Should I Put Down Pendulum (aqua) , Vessel (triamec) And Surfking Plus (sticker) For A Good Pre Emergent On Bermuda?

    Tips On Fescue What To Use For Preemergent? This Same App?

    When Bermuda is coming out of dormancy, it is very sensitive to broadleaf herbicides. If Vessel is required, use a low rate (0.75 oz/M)

    If you can, delay your broadleaf application until the turf has completed the greenup process.

    That mix will work just fine on Fescue, but remember it needs a good shot of N this time of year as well.

    Hey i tried that combination the pendulum is fine but vessel isnt worth a crap use bucanner 4 Qts per 100 gallons and amine 24d 4 Qts per 100 gallons forget the prem your wasting your money as crabbgrass is already out mix at this rate and so long weeds. Note will set bermuda back for 1 month at this rate but it will not kill it bermuda is tough you can pour full strength gasoline on it and it will come back after about a few days and gasoline actually sterlizes the soil pretty cool. You learn somethin new everyday lol.

    You can't be suggesting that customers would actually tolerate that type of result.

    BTW, Vessel is working just fine for me.
