Product Overview

Image 70 DG herbicide is a selective postemergent herbicide that overpowers stubborn weeds in warm-season turfgrasses that other herbicides just can't control. Absorbed through the root systems of targeted weeds, Image inhibits the enzymes needed for photosynthesis so food production stops and weeds waste away. Image will control crabgrass on St. Augustine Grass, as well as control nuisance summer weeds such as Field Sandbur, Prennial and Annual Ryegrass, Globe Sedge, Green Kyllinga, Rice Flatsedge, Purple Nutsedge and Yellow Nutsedge.

Image 70 DG DOES NOT come with a scooper or measuring device. This product is difficult to measure unless you have a scale or some way to measure .26 ounces to mix with a gallon of water.

Details

Image 70 DG should be applied at a rate of 0.2 ounces to 0.26 ounces per 1000 square feet (8.6 ounces to 11.4 ounces per acre). The high-use rate should be practiced where heavy weed infestation occurs.

For spot spraying with a handheld or backpack sprayer, mix 0.5 ounces of Image per 3 gallons of water and spray to wet. Approximately 1.5 gallons of spray solution will treat 1000 sq. ft.

Uniformly apply Image and avoid overlaps when spraying. Avoid drift onto vegetables, flowers, ornamental shrubs, and other desirable plants or injury may result. Irrigation or rainfall of 0.25 to 0.5 inches is suggested within 1 to 7 days of application to wash Image into the shoot/root zone where the greatest weed control activity occurs.

Image can also be applied without harm around and over a wide variety of ornamentals. For a complete list, consult the product label.

    Hard on St Augustine

    By Anonymous on 07/08/2013

    It's hard on St Augustine. It does kill crabgrass. I would not spray it on my St Augustine after April. If the outside temp is high and your lawn is St Augustine then it is going to kill your grass. It will grow back but you have seriously retarded that seasons growth.

    Image 70 DG

    By Don on 01/24/2013

    The only thing that kills all the dollar weed. My world class collection of dollar weed made up 75% of everything green in my yard and Image removed 90% of it. I did not follow up with another application until it started to come back in full force. I am reapplying now and it has started to wilt and die. This stuff really works. I live on a golf course and was able to try some of their stuff but it did not compare to Image.

    Read the Label

    By Drew on 03/27/2012

    Verified Purchase

    Yes, it's expensive, but one needs to read the label regarding what this product controls. Crabgrass is in the "help to control" category. The weeds listed in the "ninja like death" category, this stuff is great.

    Crab grass and Image

    By Everett on 10/23/2011

    Verified Purchase

    When I searched for crabgrass killer, one of the items which came up, recommended for St. Augustine, was Image 70 DG. After using it, it had absolutely no affect on the crabgrass. It was $147.00 wasted. The zero stars is accurate (except it won't accept zero).

Q
What is a good herbicide for eliminating Bahiagrass in Centipede lawn?
A

Image 70 DG herbicide is labeled for use on Centipede grass and does list that it can be used to aid in the control of and reduce competition from bahiagrass. Though we will say that all of our experts in our company and others that we reach out to for further advice in this field agree that removing Bahiagrass from Centipede, or vice versa, cannot be done. While some universities may have had success with certain products working in controlled environments for them, there are no products on the market that we are aware of that are labeled or proven to work for your needs. Anything that would kill the Bahiagrass would also kill the centipede as the overall DNA of the plants are too similar to selectively kill one and not the other. The best recommendation would be to spot treat the bahia with a Roundup type product and then reseed heavily with centipede to try and smother out the bahia and keep it from coming back. If you choose to use a product recommended on a university's site you are more than welcome to, and you can search by both product name and active ingredient to see what we carry that you can try. We apologize for not being able to give you the answer you were looking for, but please let us know if you have any other questions!

Q
What are the mixing recommendations for Image 70 DG?

I have a ortho dail N spary hose end sparyer that is 32oz how much should i mix in for a 1/8 of an acre with the sprayer dial at 1oz to a 2oz ratio

A
You will need .20-.26 oz per 1,000 sq ft. This product will not work well in a hose end sprayer because those sprayers are not accurate enough to apply the correct amount of product. You will need to use a hand pump sprayer and uniformly spray the product over the specified area. Also Image 70 DG does NOT come with a scooper or measuring device.  This product is difficult to measure unless you have a scale or some way to measure .26 ounces to mix with a gallon of water.

Q
Is there a herbicide that specifically targets grassburs?

I have warm season bermuda grass in Central Texas; however, grassburs (sharp stickers) are growing thicker each summer. Is there some chemical that can control the grassburs without hurting the bermuda grass? If so, when should it be applied?

A

Image 70 DG will treat sandbug (grassbur)  To prevent sandburs you should apply Barricade as a pre-emergent in the late fall. Sandburs are easier to prevent than to try to get rid of once they have invaded your yard.  Both products can be used as directed on the product labels on Bermudagrass.

Q
Other than 2,4-D, what other weed killer will kill spurweeds in my yard?
A
There are several products that can be used to either prevent or eliminate spurweeds such as Image 70DG, Surflan AS and Barricade. Without knowing what type of grass you have we do not have a way to make a product recommendation for you. We recommend that contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff to find out which product would work best for your needs.
