Granular application for pre-emergent for Dallisgrass
I'm up in N. Alabama with a Bermuda hybrid grass (Tifway with some # on it). My back yard is not serviced by my chemical guy (cost prohibitive) so I keep up with it. It's got a lot of Dallisgrass in the back...so I'm looking for a granular pre-emergent to put down..What's best and when should I put it down?

Thanks.

Hit it with glyphosate when Bermuda is dormant. January or February

This publication might help you with control options. LINK. Being a perennial weed, pre-emergents would not be effective, and I assume you mow it before it produces a seed head. But don’t let that deter you from using a pre-emergent for other winter lawn weeds.

Prodiamine + Celcius + Sedgehammer (if needed) = Happy bermuda.

my guess is Tifway 419?

Why not? I have the same problem and was planning on doing the same thing around November.

Tribute total or combo of Celsius plus Revolver...

If you spray it with gly after dormant, make sure you blanket spray because it will take longer to come out of dormancy and will be spotted to start spring if you spot spray.

Celcius by label. I can't recall off hand but it may not be advised in high Temps.

Prodiamine 2x a year. Coming soon (early October) and Feb.

Sedgehammer is for Nutsedge. it's a nasty grass like weed.

Worked at JSC from 97-02. Moved to Huntsville/MSFC after Lockheed Martin Management wanted to do the job hard and not smart.

ive used Sethoxydim but that will kill Bermuda. after a heavy first application you could see it was hurting.

I thought MSMA was the end all be all for bermuda and will easily kill dallisgrass.

How else are you supposed to get rid of Dallisgrass in bermuda without spending $350? I tried pulling it out but it just grows back.

You can get a paint brush and paint gly on it. It will work, but it could be pretty time consuming if you have a ton of it.

It is. Technically, it is illegal now.
