    Q
    How do you use the dispenser system that came with Dismiss Turf Herbicide?
    This has a white long tube and a cup that fits at the top of the container but we can't squeeze and get material up the tube. What are we doing wrong?
    A

    To use the measuring device on Dismiss Turf Herbicideyou would need to unscrew the lid from the product, and insert the measuring tube down into the bottle and screw it securely to the top of the bottle.  Once secure, you will gently squeeze the bottle and the product should flow out of the top and collect in the measuring reservoir.  Once you have the desired amount, pour into your pump sprayer and remove measuring tube, rinse thoroughly and replace lid.  If you are unable to get the product to dispense after following these instructions, please contact us at 1-866-581-7378.

    Q
    Does the Dismiss Turf Herbicide work on crabgrass?
    A

    Unfortunately, the Dismiss Turf Herbicide is not labeled to treat for crabgrass. Drive XLR8 is an excellent post-emergent herbicide to kill existing crabgrass. It is safe to use on most types of turf, but not all. Please refer to the product label for indications on what turf this may be applied to.

  • Asked by Terry from Mt. Carmel, Illinois
    09/03/2015
    Q
    If I read the bottle of Dismiss Turf Herbicide as 6.00 oz., then how many gallons of finished solution can I make using .025 ounce per gallon of water?
    Strictly looking at the decimal points this looks like 6oz would mix 240 gallon. That's a little over 27 cents per gallon. Many items cost $15.00 per gallon (Prosedge?).
    A

    Dismiss Turf Herbicide comes in a bottle that contains 6.0 ounces of concentrate, which will cover 0.5 to 1.25 acres, depending on the weeds you are treating and the turf. Many professional herbicides will come in a size that will cover an average of one Acre (43,560 sq ft). It is important to keep in mind that your water is just a carrier, and how much water is needed to get uniform coverage will vary with your equipment and the speed at which it is moving. Therefore, it is hard to estimate exactly how many gallons of water will be used when you are covering a large area. You can break down the rate of 4-12 ounces per Acre to 0.092 to 0.275 ounces per 1,000 square feet, using adequate water to get thorough coverage of the area using your equipment.

    Dismiss Herbicide will control more weed species than the Prosedge, however it may be easier to use a product like Prosedge if you only have a small area to cover.

  • Asked by Mike from Wailuku, Hi
    10/08/2014
    Q
    How many ounces of Dismiss Turf Herbicide per gallon of water?
    A
    The reason that herbicides do no list a specific amount per gallon of water is because the dilution rate is different for everybody.  It depends on what equipment you are using.  The more important thing is how much of the product is placed out over 1000 square feet. 

    When applying herbicides, we always recommend using calibrated equipment, rather than hose-end sprayers, to avoid uneven application or damage to desirable plants. Most herbicide labels will list how much active ingredient should be used per 1,000 square feet. To calibrate your equipment, for example, a 1 gallon sprayer, mark off an area of 1,000 square feet, and cover that area at your normal pace as evenly as possible. If you used the entire gallon, you would use the recommended amount in 1 gallon of water. If you only use ½ gallon to cover the 1000 square feet then you mix the recommended amount on the product label in a 1/2 gallon of water.  So if an acre is basically 44,000 square feet and the product label calls for 5 ounces per acre for fescue, and you used 1 gallon to cover 1000 square feet, then you would mix 5 ounces of Dismiss in 44 gallons of water.  Ultimately, correct timing and application rates are more important than how much water is used to apply your herbicides.

  • Asked by Chris from Milledgeville, Ga
    11/10/2015
    Q
    Can I use Dismiss Turf Herbicide on bahiagrass to treat for clover?
    A

    Dismiss Herbicide is a very good product that is labeled to kill clover in bahiagrass. The mixing ratio is 0.25-0.375 fl. oz. per 1000 square feet. This will generally mix in a gallon of water. This product is also labeled for various types of other broadleaf weeds, including nutsedge, ground ivy, etc.

    There is a disclaimer on the label regarding this product and bahiagrass. There may be a temporary discoloration to exposed leaf surfaces. Treated turf grass will recover with new growth. To reduce the potential for discoloration, do not apply Dismiss to turf grass that is already weak from weather, mechanical, chemical, disease or other related stress. Maintain proper culture practices such as adequate moisture and fertility levels to promote healthy turf growth.
