    Have a customer that may be seeding with Bermuda/Centipede. That is typically done in this area as the Bermuda establishes quicker and holds the soil. In time the Centipede will become dominant due to practices and maybe herbicide applications.

    My question is while I could use Tenacity as a pre during seeding germination it would inhibit/stop the Bermuda. Is there a product I that would allow germination of both and somewhat control weeds?

    Only one I know of that doesn't prune roots is Ronstar, which you probably cant use here.

    I think youre just going to have to figure out what to spray and spray often until the centipede squelches everything. Maybe something that lingers a bit more like MSM or Certainty?

    Maybe gallery? Ronstar is good but not residential use.

    You could probably get away with atrazine/simazine as well
