Product Overview

Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide was made with susceptible southern grasses in mind, but is still extremely effective in controlling broadleaf weeds and is one of the best amine Trimec complexes for controlling clover. Using less 2,4-D to accommodate sensitive warm-season grasses, and higher in MCPP to maintain the quality of Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide and is specially formulated for southern grasses. This ratio is in fact the best ratio for killing clover making this perfect for anyone, anywhere that needs to control chickweed and clover. Use this Trimec Southern on southern grasses such as Zoysia grass, Bermuda grass, St. Augustine grass, and centipede grass and on cool season grasses like fescue, and bluegrass. This should not be applied to Floratam St. Augustine grass.

    Kills my worst lawn weeds (lot was former pasture land)

    By D.m. on 03/30/2015

    I've been using Trimec Southern for 4 years now and it knocks down my worst weeds consistently without affecting my Bermudagrass lawn in Central Alabama. My lot was formerly pasture land, so it's got some of the hardiest weeds I've ever faced and Trimec kills everything and leaves my lawn intact.

    By Lynn on 05/22/2016

    I have been please with the results that I have gotten do far. The only negative is it is a bit slow working. I am very happy that it did not kill my centipede grass. I would recommend this product to anyone with weed issues.

    Great stuff

    By Larry on 03/15/2016

    I have used this for 3 years now & is as advertised - kills allmost all broadleaf type weeds. Next year I will also go with a pre-emergent for the grassy type weeds. Waited too long this year, and am paying the price with my weed popper, which right after a rain orks pretty well.

    Killed my Centipede Grass

    By Bob on 07/16/2017

    1 oz per gal of water and the grass died deader than a kipper on a cracker. Used it for spot spraying weed thank heavens and not total coverage. You get measurements of .37 oz to 2 oz as recommended amounts per 1000 sq ft (which unless info if you are a farmer). i understand that 1 gal is 1000 sf. The Trimec I used before (not the one for souther lawns) worked great. Not sure what is going on with the southern lawn formula.

Q
Is it recommended to mow before or after applying Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide?
A

 The Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide does not specifically state if if mowing before or after is beneficial to the effectiveness of the application, but we generally recommend that you do not mow within 2 days of herbicide applications. Applications need to be made when there is no expected rainfall for 24hrs, and temperatures are not above 90 degrees. DO NOT apply to newly seeded turf until after the 2nd or 3rd mowing. Being a post emergent, this product will absorb better and more thoroughly if the weeds have some growth to them and are not cut short.

Q
How much trimec southern for a 5 gallon backpack sprayer to spray weeds in bermuda grass?
A
For broadleaf control, you would mix 0.75 oz per 1,000 square feet on Bermuda turf. The amount of water is not as important as making sure to apply the solution uniformily over the 1,000 square foot section. Most herbicide labels will list how much active ingredient should be used per 1,000 square feet. To calibrate your equipment, for example, mark off an area of 1,000 square feet, and cover that area at your normal pace as evenly as possible. If you used an entire gallon, you would use the recommended amount in 1 gallon of water. If you only use ½ gallon to cover the 1000 square feet then you mix the recommended amount on the product label in a 1/2 gallon of water.
