    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.

  • Asked by Cecilia from Muldrow, Oklahoma
    06/28/2017
    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
    When can livestock, in our case horses, be put back on to pasture treated with Trimec Southern?
    Need to eliminate white clover and chickweed in a 5 acre pasture we rely on for summer grazing. need to have horses on it by mid-may. Live in central Indiana.
    A

    We would not recommend using Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide in an area where animals will be grazing. If it has already been used, the animals should not be placed in the area for an entire grazing season.

     

    We would recommend using Martins Clear Pasture. There are no grazing restrictions except in lactating dairy animals.

    Q
    Do I use a hose end sprayer or a container sprayer?
    Do I use a hose end sprayer or a container where I add the product with water in order to apply Trimec Southern?
    A
    It is recommended to use a hand held or backpack pump sprayer to apply to herbicides like Trimec Broadleaf Herbicide. The problem with using the hose end sprayer for herbicide applications is that they are not very accurate and you can wind up dispensing more/less product than needed in a given area which can lead to less than desirable results.
