    Great for eliminating Poa Annua, and other annual grasses

    By Geoff on 02/17/2015

    Verified Purchase

    Great pre-emergent herbicide product when used at the proper time (October/November) to prevent spring/summer seed germination of Poa Annua and other listed grasses. Can be used in spring too before grass appears. Safe for use on Dichondra lawns, too. Be sure to follow all label instructions... Including watering for several minutes to move herbicide into soil and create a layer that prevents weed seed germination. Lasts 3-6 months per application. Great product!

Q
When is the best time to apply on grass areas?

Dandelions and clover take over our grass areas by mid july every year. This is the first year I applied amine 400 so right now there are no signs of either popping up again.

Q
What post-emergent herbicide is safe on dichondra?

Recently seeded a new dichondra lawn last fall. Problem is I have much poa annua (bluegrass); little bitter cress; and creeping charlie invading my dichondra. Can you recommend any post-emergent herbicides that can be used now while weeds are active? Also, are there any pee-emergent products that are safe on a dichondra lawn? If so, what time of year is best to apply? Your thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A

Since Dichondra grass is a very sensitive grass and you do not ever want to use a herbicide containing 2-4D on it, it can be difficult to find the right products to recommend. For best results as a post emergent, it is recommended that you pull weeds by hand. Bensumec 4LF Herbicide is labeled to treat poa annua and has been proven very effective. Please read page 2 of the Bensumec 4LF label for detailed application instructions. Hope this helps and please let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist you.
