    Q
    Mixing RATIO of VANTAGE to Water
    In North Florida with a centipede grass lawn which has a small area of burmuda grass, using a 3 gallon hand sprayer, how many ounces of VANTAGE should I use per 3 gallons to kill the burmuda grass? And when should I apply it?
    A
    You would use 0.5 - 1.4 oz. of Southern Ag Vantage Grass Killer per 1,000 sq. ft (the amout of water is not as important as applying the proper amount of herbicide to the 1,000 sq foot section) for a broadcast application or 2 - 3 oz per gallon of water for spot treatments.

    Q
    is it safe to use VANTAGE on a centipede lawn during the lawns dorment perion to control bermuda and/or bahia
    i have a centipede lawn with localized bermuda and/or bahia infestitation. is it ok to use vantage in the fall/winter when the grasses(including centipede) is dorment ?
    A
    While it is safe to use it on your lawn when it is dormant, it will be a complete waste of money and product as it will not kill what is currently there. Post emergent products like Vantage will only kill the weeds you are targeting when they are in an actively growing state and are absorbing nutrients. If they are dormant already, it will not absorb the product at all and will not be affected by it.

  • Asked by Fred from North Myrtle Beach
    06/25/2013
    Q
    Will Vantage Grass Killer kill Liriope
    A
    Liriope is actually listed as a tolerant shrub to the Vantage Grass killer. 
    Unfortunately, once the liriope are up and thriving the only way to kill it is to carefully spot treat with a glyphosate product such as Agrisel Gly Pho-Sel Pro. Agrisel Gly Pho-Sel Pro is a non-selective herbicide which means it will kill most types of vegetation including desirable turfgrasses, so care must be used when applying this product to the turf areas.

    Q
    Can Vantage be used in centipede grass to kill poa annua?
    A

    No, Southern Ag Vantage Grass Killer was not labeled to control poa annua. We would recommend Atrazine or Certainty Herbicide to kill poa annua in centipede turgrass. You should also use a pre-emergent such as Prodiamine in late Summer or Fall to prevent this weed from germinating going forward.

    Q
    What product can I use to treat crabgrass that is safe for centipede grass?
    A
    As you probably know, Centipedegrass is a very sensitive species of turf so many products that eliminate the crabgrass and other weeds can also cause damage to your lawn. Hi Yield Atrazine is safe to be used on Centipede and it will suppress Crabgrass but may not completely eliminate it. It will also control a large variety of other broadleaf weeds. Tenacity is a great pre and post emergent herbicide that will control crabgrass along with many other types of weeds without harming your centipede lawn. Make sure to read the Tenacity label very carefully and mix exactly what is recommended as this is a strong product and mis-using it can cause temporary turf injury. When applying tenacity it is highly recommended to use a temporary turf colorant like Turf Mark Blue to allow you to see where you are spraying. Overlapping your application of Tenacity can cause temporary whitening of the lawn as well, but the color will return in 3-4 weeks at most. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
