Dismiss South Herbicide will effectively treat actively growing nutsedge and crabgrass when temperatures are between 60-70 degrees, but is not labeled to treat for Virginia Buttonweed. Blindside would be a better option to treat for all three weeds.
Yes, Dismiss South Herbicide can safely be used on Bermuda grass lawns.
Dismiss South Herbicide is not labeled for dallisgrass. We do carry products that will work. Please tell us the desired turfgrass that you wish not to harm so that we can offer a recommendation.
Dismiss South cannot be used on or around anything edible. You can find our selection of edible garden products here. We would recommend carefully spot-treating the nutsedge with a product like Avenger.
Per the product label for Dismiss South Herbicide: Reseeding, overseeding or sprigging of treated areas within one (1) month after application of this product could inhibit the establishment of desirable turfgrasses. Overseeding of bermudagrass with perennial ryegrass at two (2) to four (4) weeks after an application can be done if slight injury to perennial ryegrass can be tolerated.

Dismiss South Herbicide is labeled to treat lespedeza and is safe for use on centipede turf. You may need multiple applications over time to control this weed completely. You can also use Dimension 2EW as a pre-emergent to prevent further growth of this weed.
One product that is labeled for this application is Bonide Grass Beater:
This will work best on young torpedograss. Be sure that the centipede is not under other stress from heat, drought, etc. We do not recommend applying if temperatures are over 90 degrees; you can apply in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler, if needed.
Your other option is to spot treat carefully using a non-selective herbicide like RoundUp QuikPro:
You will need to wait at least 4 weeks to reseed after applying Dismiss South.
Dismiss South Herbicide is a very specific herbicide and the label states when using it on the tolerant species of turf for weed control, you use 9.5-14 ounces per acre, which breaks down to roughly 0.220-0.331 per 1000 sq/ft. When using herbicides the amount of water you use is not what is key, only that you get the correct amount of product over the correct amount of area so as to not harm your lawn by using to much, or not see results by not using enough. The best way to measure out amount per a set gallon of water is to mark off 1000 sq/ft, walk it with just water and see how many gallons of water it takes you to cover that area. Whether its 1 or 5 gallons of water both are correct and you will mix whatever you come up with for coverage with either of the above stated rates.
Dismiss South Herbicide is labeled to control goosegrass and is safe for bermudagrass athletic fields.
Dismiss South Herbicide is not labelled for field sandbur or cocklebur. Sandburs are easier to prevent than to try to get rid of once they have invaded your yard. To prevent sandburs you should apply a pre-emergent such as Dimension 2EW or Pendulum 2G Herbicide in the late fall. For post-emergent applications, we would suggest EndRun Herbicide.
