    Q
    I want kill Bermuda in el toro zoysia. Am I to apply more than once, and how long between applications?
    The directions look to be a mix of 2.5 oz to 3.0 oz per acre and add a surfactant, but not sure of amount. Also, it is suggested to apply about June 1st. I live in Bakersfield, CA. Am I to apply more than once, and how long between applications?
    A

    Fusilade II Herbicide can be used to remove Bermuda grass from zoysia grass when used at reduced rates. Applications should be made around June 1st per the product label.


    Apply 0.07-0.14 oz/1000 sq. ft. (3-6 oz./A) along with 0.25% v/v (1/2 pt./25 gals.) of a nonionic surfactant. Application should be made every 28 days when the grass weeds are actively growing.

    Keep in mind for herbicides the amount of water is not important. What is important is getting the correct amount of product, over the correct amount of area. Mark off 1000 sq/ft and fill your sprayer tank with only water. Spray as if you were covering the area with the herbicide. However many gallons it takes you to cover that area is how many gallons to mix the product with. Everyone's walking speed and how heavily they spray is different, which is why whether you use 2 gallons or 8 gallons of water to cover 1000 sq/ft, you are correct.

    Usage chart for spot treatments:

    1 gallon water  +   .75 fl oz of Fusilade  +   .5 oz surfactant

    10 gallons water   +   6.5 fl oz Fusilade   +   3 oz surfactant

    25 gallons water   +   1 pint Fusilade  +   .5 pint surfactant

    50 gallon water   +    1 qt Fusilade   +   1 pint surfactant

    Q
    When is the best time to apply Fusilade II to a fine fescue lawn to get rid of Bermuda grass?
    We have three or four spots of Bermuda grass in our lawn and we would like to eliminate them, or at least minimize them as much as possible. 1. When is the best time/times to apply Fusilade II? 2. What is the best concentration to apply for this purpose to minimize damage to the fescue, which we want? Thanks very much!
    A

    This is directly off of the product label:

    Apply 0.07-0.14 oz/1000 sq. ft. (3-6 oz./A) along with 0.25% v/v (1/2 pt./25 gals.) of a nonionic surfactant. Application should be made every 28 days when the grass weeds are actively growing. The higher rates may result in temporary discolorization of the desirable turf with recovery in 10-14 days. Do not apply to desirable turf which is under stress. For best results, make applications in spring and fall and avoid treatments during July and August.
    Complete control of undesirable grass may take 1-2 growing seasons.

    We also recommend calling your local county extension office as they usually know the optimum times for spraying lawns in your area.

    Q
    Is there a product to kill Bermuda grass in a Fescue lawn?
    I have strands of Bermuda throughout my Fescue lawn - too much to hand pull and destroy. I need chemical to kill just the Fescue
    A

    Bermuda would be considered a grassy weed, so you need a product that is geared towards grassy weeds and not broadleaf weeds.  We want to be clear that bermuda can be suppressed, but it is VERY difficult to kill completely.  It will take multiple treatments to finally kill it.  But Fusilade II is usually the go to product for this issue.

    Q
    What is the mixing ratio on Fusilade II Herbicide?
    I want to kill weeds in a liriopi bed. What mix ratio of Fusilade should I use ( i.e. how much fusilade to add per gallon of water)?
    A
    You will use 0.4 - 0.6 per 1,000 sq. ft. of Fusillade II Herbicide in at least a gallon of water. It is important to use the correct amount of product versus the amount of water. A gallon will generally treat 1000 square feet. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    Will Over The Top kill torpedo grass without killing shrubs?
    A
    Over the top is not labeled for torpedo grass.  Torpedo grass is an invasive grass species that is very difficult to get rid of.  However, we do sell a professional version of over the top called Fusilade II which is labeled for torpedo grass and is what we recommend.  It is meant for the same purpose and that is for killing grasses out of your landscaped beds.  Please read the product label to make sure it is labeled for use around the type of shrubs that you have.

    Q
    How do I get rid of Centipede and/or Soyia grass from my Jasmine and low lying Juniper?
    I am fighting a losing battle against my grass wanting to grow into my flower beds. I have pulled till my fingers bleed, but the grass keeps coming back. I am not real sure the exact species of grass I have, but I have narrowed it down to either Centipede or Soyia. I would like to know if their is an herbicide I can use to control this issue, and put my fingers on the mend.
    A
    Fusilade II is a selective herbicide for application over flowers, bushes and ornamentals that kills grass and grassy weeds in your flower bed and ornamental planting areas.  You should mix a surfactant with it.  It typically takes 2 weeks to see results after application.

    Q
    Can Fusilade II Herbicide be sprayed on asian jasmine to kill broad leaf and grasses?
    We do not have the jasmine all grown in after 15 months but growing with fertilizer now. We have lots of broad leaf plantain and some other grasses what do we do for a spray that won't kill jasmine.
    A
    Fusilade II Herbicide can be applied to established Asiatic Jasmine to eradicate grassy weeds. Snapshot 2.5 TG would be a good choice for a broad spectrum pre-emergent around Asiatic Jasmine for the broadleaf weeds.

    Q
    Is there a minimum temp requirement for application of Fusilade II Herbicide to be effective?
    A

    Any time you are using a post-emergent herbicide, including ones like Fusilade, the weeds or grasses you are targeting must be in an actively growing state and soil temps need to be above 65 degrees consistently for you to see maximum results. You will also want to make sure you are using a surfactant with this product like the Southern Ag Non Ionic Surfactant.
