Blindside Herbicide Post Emergent, manufactured by FMC Professional Solutions, is a selective post-emergent herbicide that does an excellent job controlling up to 70 different broadleaf weeds and sedges on cool and warm-season turfgrasses.

This product contains the active ingredients Sulfentrazone 60% and Metsulfuron 6%, which combine into a dual-action formula that penetrates plant tissue and goes down to the root to kill an invasive weed completely. It is fast-acting, with results showing in as quickly as a week.

Tools Needed

You will need a handheld pump sprayer, backpack sprayer, or spray rig. For small lawn jobs, we recommend a handheld 1-gallon pump sprayer or a 4-gallon backpack sprayer.

How to Use

  • Step 1: Determine how much Blindside Herbicide to use by measuring the square footage of the treatment area. To do this, measure the length and width of the treatment area in feet and multiply them together (length X width = square footage). Blindside Herbicide should be used at a rate of .075 - 0.15 per 1,000 sq. ft. for cool-season grasses and 0.15 - 0.23 per 1,000 sq. ft. for warm-season grasses. For more specific application rates, refer to the label.
  • Step 2: Fill your selected spray tank halfway with water and then add the appropriate amount of Blindside Herbicide. Fill the sprayer the rest of the way with water and shake well, and you will be ready to spray.
  • Step 3: Spray target weeds until wet, but avoid spray solution runoff and over-application. An excellent technique to put into practice is to prevent side-to-side movement of the nozzle when spraying, as it is best to spray the nozzle directly with no movement close to the weeds or moss to ensure proper application.

Where to Use

Blindside Herbicide treatment on roadside

Blindside Herbicide can be used in and around commercial and residential turf, including golf courses, lawns, sports fields, cemeteries, parks, campgrounds, recreational areas, roadsides, school grounds, and sod farms.

When to Use

Blindside Herbicide WDG should be used when unwanted weeds, such as dollar weed, buttonweed, dove weed, dandelion, nutsedge, crabgrass, and more, grow on the property. Prime time for application is in the early spring season.

Safety Information

Blindside WDG Herbicide is safe to apply around pets and children when used according to the product label instructions. Always wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when mixing and applying this product.

Keep people and pets out of treated areas until the spray has dried. 

Special Considerations

Blindside Herbicide WDG can be used with a surfactant if needed, depending on the treatment area.

Some turf types may temporarily discolor due to the use of surfactants or adjuvants with Blindside Herbicide. High temperatures and high relative humidity may increase the risk of temporary discoloration.

We Highly Recommend!!!
Finally, a product that killed the Huge Variety of - some of the biggest problem weeds - we had quickly become overrun with all of a sudden, in our Bermuda lawn. My husband had spread a pre-emergent (from a local store) early on in the spring as usual but about 6wks later, for some reason our lawn was quickly being taken over by all these hard to kill weeds!! (like annual bluegrass) We tried all the name brand weed killers like "Weed Be Gone" & "Weed and Grass Killer" products but they just killed our grass!! After some research, I found & ordered the Blindside & 2 wks after my husband applied it, we finally had our beautiful Bermuda lawn back, 100%!! We definitely recommend it!! We have also already purchased "Blindside Pre-emergent granules" to spread this fall to keep any of the weeds (especially the annual bluegrass) from returning next spring!!

Blindside Really Blindsides Broadleaf Weeds!
Blindside can be readily mixed with other herbicides and does a great job of controlling most broadleaf weeds. It is the only herbicide I have found that eradicates spotted spurge. On my TIF 419 Bermuda.

    5/18/24
    A:No, Blindside Herbicide cannot be used near ponds or other aquatic areas. This pesticide is toxic to marine/estuarine invertebrates. Drift and runoff may be hazardous to terrestrial and aquatic plants in neighboring areas.

  7. Q:Why do you recommend Blindside for Doveweed over Celsius? I tried both. Celsuis took about 10 days to work but it completely destroyed the Doveweed. No repeat applications needed. Blindside took 3 aplications and the Doveweed came back. For one gallon spot spraying, I mixed one teaspoon of Celsius and a teaspoon and a half of Dismiss. Killed every weed I had with no damage to my Bermuda. Doveweed will destroy a lawn fast. You really need that Dicambia for a complete kill. From my experience anyway.
    6/30/22
  8. Q:Will it effect flowers?
    3/9/22
    A:Yes it will, the product label states to "not apply directly to landscape ornamentals or ornamental beds." It also says "Do not use clippings as mulch or compost around flowers, ornamentals, trees or in vegetable gardens."
