Crabgrass

Post by bbbdkc79 » Wed Dec 04, 2019 6:34 pm

Folks, I'm fairly new (about a year now) to how the forum works, but I really need to know what I can do this winter to get rid of the established crabgrass I have in my yard. It's primarily in the parts of the yard that don't get the full sun my front does. It's too late for pictures to take and share, but trust me, it's there.

Quinclorac + Celsius is a great combination.

I have the Quinclorac, and have used it a few times, but I didn't get the results I expected. Do I need the Celsius to make the difference?

If it’s very mature maybe but every time I have sprayed quinclorac it knocks it down quick. Pictures of the crab grass would help. I see you’re down in Florida so you could still have some around, here in OK everything has been dormant for a couple months

I use Garden Weasel on post emergent crabgrass (and some others). Amazon has it. It is a little pricey but if you follow the directions (weeds must be wet) I almost guarantee the crabgrass will die! Oh, and it’s organic too! Save yourself some trouble and have a good pre-emergent plan going forward. :)

I've had success with Quinclorac and methylated seed oil. You could also use glypho just on the leaves of the crabgrass, applied with a by brush.

Do you get a frost? If so, that crabgrass is going to die. It's an annual. If it's not dying from a frost, it isn't' crabgrass.
