    Q
    Is MSMA Target 6.6 safe for use on tall fescue that is being infested with dallisgrass?
    A

    MSMA Target 6.6 is only labeled for commercial turf like golf courses and sod farms, and it is not safe for use on fescue. We would recommend a product like Dismiss Nxt instead which is safe for a fescue lawn, and labeled to treat for dallisgrass. It is labeled for supression only though. There is a possibility that after multiple uses for supression your fescue grass would fill in the spots and choke out the dallisgrass completely.

    Q
    Is the MSMA Target 6.6 effective for Dallisgrass, Johnson Grass, and Crabgrass on a golf course? Would a golf course have to reapply after 7 days for treatment to be effective?"
    A

    MSMA Target 6.6? is labeled for commercial turf like golf courses and sod farms, and it is not safe for use on bermuda. We would recommend a product like Certainy Turf Herbicide? instead which is safe for a bermuda lawn, and labeled to treat for dallisgrass. It is labeled for supression only though. There is a possibility that after multiple uses for supression your bermuda grass would fill in the spots and choke out the dallisgrass completely. Certainty will not kill crabgrass. Quinkill Max is a great product to kill actively growing crabgrass in Bermuda.

    Q
    Will MSMA kill cat claw vine in my pasture?
    A

    MSMA Target 6.6 is not labeled to be used on pasture or grazing areas, and it is not recommended to be used for cat claw. This is an invasive plant species for which you may want to contact your Cooperative Extension office. You would likely need to use a cut stem treatment with a glyphosate product like RoundUp QuikPro or a brush killer such as Crossbow Herbicide.

  • Asked by Pamela from Rockport, Tx
    01/22/2019
    Q
    Can I use a weed and feed at the same time as MSMA Target 6?
    Or can I use a fertilizer at the same time like 13-13?
    A

    Whether you can use a weed and feed product at the same time as MSMA Target will depend on the weed and feed and what herbicide active ingredient is in it. In general, it is fine to use herbicides and fertilizers at the same time as long as the labels do not restrict it and the timing is correct for both. Keep in mind that you should not be fertilizing your warm-season turf until after it transitions.

  • Asked by Daniel from Evansville Indiana
    07/29/2018
    Q
    How long after application of MSMA Target 6.6 until you can over seed?
    Treating dallisgrass and would like to over seed with KGB mix
    A

    MSMA Target 6.6 is only labeled for commercial turf like golf courses and sod farms, and it is not safe for use on home lawns.  The label does not give timing for seeding for this reason.  

    Dismiss Nxt would be the better option for home lawn use, and may be used on seeded, sodded or sprigged turgrasses that are well established. First application of Dismiss NXT Herbicide to newly seeded, sodded or sprigged turfgrass can be made following second mowing providing the grass has developed into a uniform stand with a good root system

    Reseeding, overseeding or sprigging of treated areas within one (1) month after application of this product could inhibit the establishment of desirable turfgrasses so you do need to wait.
