Trimec Southern is a concentrated product that must be diluted with water prior to use. We have linked the product label below so you can review the application instructions:
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.
Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide comes with a surfactant already mixed in the product so you do not have to purchase and mix a surfactant separately like you do with most of the other herbicides that we sell.
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.
One of our most popular general weed control product that is post emergent is the Trimec Southern Broadleaf Herbicide. Trimec Southern is labeled for just about any weed you could have and will not harm your grass. Best of all, it comes with a surfactant already mixed in the product so you do not have to purchase and mix a surfactant separately like you do with most of the other herbicides that we sell.
