Dismiss Turf Herbicide is made to control nutsedge in turfgrass but it is not labeled for use on ornamentals. When treating for nutsedge around ornamentals, most of the time you will have to spot treat where the sedge is coming up with a glyphosate product such as Glyphosel Pro.
Dismiss Turf Herbicide is not labeled to be used in areas animals are grazed. You would need to wait at least 1 year from application before allowing animals to return to the treated area.
Yes, Dismiss Turf is safe for dogs after the treated area has dried. This may be anywhere from 1-4 hours depending on weather conditions like temperature and how much sunlight the treatment area receives. We recommend that you avoid areas where pets may spend the most time if you are concerned about contact or ingestion in those areas.
Most EPA-registered herbicides like Dismiss can safely be mixed together with other EPA-registered-herbicides. We recommend that you read and follow the label instructions to prepare a tank mix test to make sure the products are compatible.
Per the Dismiss Turf Herbicide product label: 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.
Yes. Dismiss Turf Herbicide is a great product to use for lespedeza in centipede grass.
As long as you keep any applications of the Dismiss Turf Herbicide from reaching the roots of the plants in the garden beds, and prevent any over spray on the foliage as you treat, they will be safe.
The Dismiss Turf Herbicide label only advises to keep pets out of the area until the application has dried. We would recommend contacting the manufacturer FMC directly at 800-321-1362 or your vet for advice.
It would be recommended to wait least 4 weeks or to have mowed at least twice to apply Dismiss Turf Herbicide to newly seeded areas (whichever is longer).

Dismiss Turf Herbicide is a great wide range post emergent herbicide that will control lespedeza as well as clover, nutsedge, spurge, and many more. Dismiss is safe to use on Centipede lawns and is used at a rate of 0.18 - 0.275 oz per 1000 sq/ft in 1-2 gallons of water. You can prevent lespedeza and other grassy and broadleaf weeds by applying a pre emergent like Dimension 2EW to your lawn fall and spring of each year before weeds germinate.
Once Dismiss has been mixed with water, it should be used or discarded within 24 hours.

Kyllinga is just a type of sedge. Dismiss Turf Herbicide would be a great option for either.
You could potentially apply Dismiss Turf Herbicide with a pre-emergent herbicide as long as neither label prohibits such use and both can be used in the same areas. However, you want to be sure that you are applying your products at the optimal time for the weeds you are targeting. Pre-emergents must be applied before weeds germinate, which is usually when soil temperatures are between 50-55 degrees. Post-emergent herbicides will be most effective when target weeds are young and actively growing; for most herbicides this is in the range of 60-85 degrees. Be sure to calibrate products properly, and if you are mixing two products that have not previously been verified to work together, it is best to do a small jar test for compatability first.
Dismiss Turf Herbicide is not labeled for use in pastures with grazing livestock. Consider using GrazonNext Herbicide for that type of application.
Once Dismiss Turf Herbicide has been mixed with water, it should be used or discarded within 24 hours. Unmixed Dismiss has a shelf life of 3-5 years if stored in a cool dry place.
The Dismiss Turf Herbicide product label states that it is compatible with most herbicides and fungicides commonly used in turf and ornamental plant management. That being said, we suggest you do a jar test first, to make sure the products are compatible, and be sure to follow the label instructions for each product.
