    100% bahia free now

    By David on 08/09/2014

    Verified Purchase

    Bought this after a little resesrch on bahia removal and it worked great. Sprayed in May before seed heads came and 2 weeks later the bahia was completely dead. The yard looked terrible because of the high percentage of bahia but after heavy fertilizer and water I now have a thick bermuda lawn that is filling in nicely. This stuff is strong. Do your research before use because it is known to kill oaks.

    Kills 100% of weeds, including mature red clover and multi-flora rose, in pastures, lawns and hay fields. It also controls brush in wooded areas. Easy to use, no chemical odor and very cost effective.

Q
How long does it take to see the results of AmTide MSM 60 DF?

I sprayed yesterday and was wondering how long it should take to see results. I'm treating St Augustine Grass for dollar weed and it says I may need to repeat but I don't want to kill the grass. Today I don't see any difference but then it has only been 24hrs.

A
When applied to actively growing young weeds, susceptible plants appear chlorotic from 1 to 3 weeks after application and the growing point subsequently dies.

Q
I have a 25 gal sprayer. I am Killing kudzu and weeds in a pine tree plantation. How many oz. to 25 gal?

How many oz. to 5 gal. For normal weeds in St. Augustine grass in my yard?

A
According to the product label: Use on St. Augustinegrass, Bermudagrass and Zoysiagrass (Meyers and Emerald)
Apply 0.25 to 1.0 oz. AmTide MSM 60 DF HERBICIDE per acre for weed control. Some chlorosis or stunting of the turfgrass may occur following application.
RELEASE—HARDWOOD CONTROL AND SUPPRESSION
AmTide MSM 60 DF HERBICIDE is recommended for application over the top of established slash and loblolly pine to control the species listed in “Weeds Controlled” and “Brush Species Controlled” section of this label. Apply 1 to 4 ounces per acre to control the species indicated, including kudzu.
Keep in mind when dealing with herbicides, the amount of water is not the key in application. As long as you are following the label and dispersing the correct amount of product over the correct amount of area, the amount of water you use doesn't matter. On average you want to use at least 1-2 gallons of water per 1000 sq/ft you are treating. If it takes you 25 gallons of water to cover an acre, then you would mix up to 1 ounce of Amtide to the 25 gallons. If it takes you 50 gallons to cover an acre, you would split what you plan to use in half and treat half an acre at a time. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
