MSMA Target 6 Plus Herbicide 2.5 Gallon

Free Shipping on All Orders

MSMA Target 6 Plus Herbicide is for post-emergent control of crabgrass, dallisgrass, johnsongrass, nutsedge, pigweed, and chickweed. MSMA is one of the best selective post emergent herbicides but is also dangerous if improperly used. Please read all label instructions before use.

Target Pests

MSMA Herbicide will kill and control dallisgrass (dallasgrass) johnsongrass barnyardgrass chickweed cocklebur crabgrass goosegrass nutsedge pigweed puncture vine and sandburs.

For Use In

MSMA can be used on Cotton Golf courses Sod Farms and highway rights of way for weed control.

Application

Application varies based on application site but it is important to apply MSMA when the temperature is between 80 and 90 degrees. Chlorosis, which is a yellowing of the leaves, may occur for broadcast applications of MSMA. It is normal and the desireable turf grasses should regain their normal color in 7-14 days.

You will want to spray crabgrass, johnsongrass, and dallisgrass during the first or second stage of growth. This is usually done during the spring when grasses are beginning to germinate.

For general applications mix 2 oz of MSMA per gallon of water and apply as a coarse spray to weeds.

Applications may only be made twice per season. Wait a minimum of 10 days between treatments.

DO NOT WATER FOR 24 HOURS

DO NOT APPLY TO ST AUGUSTINE GRASS, CARPETGRASS, OR CENTIPEDE GRASS. MSMA will kills those grasses.

Recently MSMA was banned for use on golf courses which was the primary use for it. We primarily sell MSMA into the right of way vegetation management and range and pasture market. There are a few agricultural uses for MSMA during the cotton growing season. It is important to refer to the label from the manufacturer for the most up to date application sites for MSMA herbicide. We try to keep our site as up to date as possible but cannot guarantee the validity of the statements on MSMA.

Coverage Area

Each 2.5 Gallon of MSMA will treat up to 4 acres of turf for various weeds depending on application rate.

Time to Kill

MSMA Target 6 Plus will begin killing weeds immediately. You will notice chlorosis which is discoloration of the plant leaves but it may take up to 14 days until complete control is achieved.

Mix Rate

MSMA should be mixed at a rate of 2oz per gallon of water for general applications. Please refer to the label or give us a call for specific mix rates for particular weeds.

I didn't mix any water with my target 6. killed everything including Bermuda. Since my mistake i have been watering the heck out of my yard. Is there any chance it will grow back or should i start over w sod? Is what i did bad for the environment/water?
UncleMAtt on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should probably not be using herbicides, insecticides, or sharp implements.
What makes msma dangerous?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Try as I did [online], I could not get a definitive answer. My conclusion: It was pulled off the market because of adverse conditions surrounding ONE golf course in Florida and it was not even proved to my satisfaction that MSMA was the cause. Personally, I believe the competition with their inferior weed-killing products won the battle and got it pulled off the market to enhance their own profits.
Is it a good time to apply Target 6 right now, this fall?
Robert R on Sep 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on where you are and what you're treating. Here in Texas, we should treat every 6 weeks through September for sandspur.
(according to aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/archives/parsons/turf/grassbur.html)
What is the shelf life?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can store the MSMA for about 3 to 5 years before it starts loosing its effectiveness.
Dose msma kills sand burr ?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes; use two spraying s 21 days apart.
I've had the Bermuda already for about 8 months since June 2017 and it can be considered established The Bermuda is still brownish at this time of spring and I am waiting for it to get to green .Can I spray with MSMA to kill weeds before the bermuda becomes green again?
Robertolito on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn’t use mama until it is completely out of dormancy. Usually after the third required mowing.
Will it effect cattle in pasture?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2017

Will MSMA kill Mondo Grass. Want to keep the Mondo but have various weeds that have infiltrated. I also have Fusilade and know II is also designed to kill weeds/turf grasses and not kill Mondo.
Aubrey on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it will not kill Mondo grass, Monkey grass or Liriope grass. You instead need to use a commercial grade glyphosate (e.g. Roundup ProMax, Roundup Pro, Ranger Pro, or HomeDepot HDX) product that is somewhere around the range of 40% to 50% glyphosate. The standard Roundup has 18% glyphosate and in my experience will not kill it unless you mix it at least 5X the amount labeled per gal of water. This becomes very cost prohibitive because you'll go through the standard Roundup concentrate after mixing only 2.5 gallons of water. I've had Liriope almost completely take over my yard, and if I remember correctly, when I tested a glyphosate product with 41% concentrate, it took between 2 and 3 weeks before I started to see my Liriope start to brown and die, and then about 6 to 7 weeks later there were bare, circular dirt spots (with absolutely no sign of previous vegetation) where I did my test sprays. I recommend getting the Roundup Pro because of its 50% concentrate.
It rained a half hour after I finished spraying. It was a light rain, will the MSMA still work?
A shopper on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure as have never had that happen and unable though I tried to get an answer as how long it takes to get rain fast. I suspect it's application would be compromised and probably should be repeated but you could wait a week or so and if any result.
Can this be applied if the temperature is over 90 degrees?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've applied this MSMA at 95+/- degrees on Bermuda lawns.

The hotter the quicker the death of the weeds. Next day the weeds are brown and dead/dying. Bermuda may lighten a bit temporarily but dark green returns and Bermuda is all that remains on the lawn.

I've not tried it at 100+ degrees...don't want to start a Black Hole or something...
Will this kill the weeds in my monkey
grass and not the monkey grass?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will most likely kill the monkey grass as well as the weeds. It will not kill lawn grasses but will most likely kill the monkey grass.
Can this be used on zoysia
Skin on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can. Mix it at 75 mils per gallon of water. Will take 3 apps at this rate
will this product affect St Augustine grasses if sprayed to close?
gerald w on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can. Try your best to only spray the target weed and avoid spraying your desired grasses.
In your expert opinion, is there any chance of MSMA being re-instated back into the market for the state of Florida since they honestly don’t have anything legitimately to base there decision on. This was and still is from what I understand the most effective and cost efficient product on the market for turf in Florida. Thank you. The question is, is there any chance of this product getting back to Florida for use on golf courses of are they stuck using the more exspensive products that dont always work?
D B on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I would not be able to make any statements towards when this would be allowed into Florida.
I sprayed this on my pasture how long do I wait to let horses back on pasture? We got 1.5" of rain a day and a half after application.
pard on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This product should not be sprayed on grazing pastures, sorry. I did confirm, and I am attaching a label for you to take a look at for your knowledge.

Does target 6 kill plants?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It can. It killed some of my bermuda grass but it already recovered. You should avoid spraying plants or desired grasses. Spray only the weeds that it is intended to kill and control. Don’t overspray as a small amount should be good. As with any chemical always protective gloves and a protective respirator to avoid skin contact and inhaling.
I have about a acre yard. It is a
Fescue lawn but is being taken over by bermuda grass and clover. Will this product prevent these grasses especially bermuda from coming back in the spring?
.
A shopper on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The MSMA is target specific to grassy weeds. Regular and hybrid Bermuda tolerate the MSMA - it yellows upon application but generally does not die. I only apply at about 1 ounce per gallon ( 1 ounce per 1000 SF) to prevent crabgrass and other grassy weeds in turf grass. MSMA is not effective on broadleaf - use Triamic or Amine 400 at the same rate as above for the broadleaf weeds.

When sprayed on yard is it harmful to dogs?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The instructions say, keep pets off the treated area until it has been washed into the soil. To me this would mean allowing the treated area to dry for the 24 hour period [for it to take effect] then rinsing it off. Personally, I just don't let the dog out immediately afterward, allowing it to dry off first.
can i spray when temps are over 90 f ?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: MSMA seems to work best when the temperature is between 80 and 95 degrees F. This is typically when the grassy weeds are actively growing. The danger is damage to sensitive ornamental grass species. I have TIff 419 and don’t apply the Target 6 Plus above 85 degrees. On regular Bermuda it has worked well up to 95 degrees.

Doug - Fort Worth
I'm wondering if this product also kills the grass one wants to keep on a lawn? How late in the season can one apply this product? Is August too late for the season?
duane S on Aug 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends. You don't want to apply it if the temp is over 90 deg. Even if you apply it when the temp is ok then you have to abide by the mixing instructions. I spot treat the areas I want to kill weeds. I do not randomly spray the yard. I don't want to take the chance. I use about 1/2 ounce per gallon of water.
I have some MSMA Target 6 Plus I purchased about * years ago. At what mixing strength is it still effective?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: MSMA takes several years to loose it's effectiveness. As long as you have not had it longer than 5 years you should mix at the recommended rate of 2 ounces per gallon of water. Also make sure your temperatures are above 80 degrees and below 90 degrees during the day. It is also wise to watch your wind speeds when you spray (I live in Oklahoma so especially important here) :)
Does it kill grass burrs?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: MSMA will work great for Grass Spurs, you can also apply a pre-emergent this spring and get control of the infestation of Spurs and other unwanted weeds.

Great option.
Will this kill the sticker weeds? If so when is the best time to apply this product? I have these weeds coming up every where
Kathy on Sep 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you mean sand spur, which is a grass, yes. If you mean spurweed, no. Spurweed is just now germinating. Some will germinate in late winter and produce "stickers" late spring or early summer. Check an online weed identification to know. 2,4,D Amine will kill spurweed, especially if treated in the young stage. It becomes difficult to kill with age..
will mama kill sand burr?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will kill them dead in a couple days. Just make sure temperature is above 80 when you spray. It will also kill burrs so no regrowth
When can you spray newly planted Bermuda grass that's started growing?
Kenny R on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Target 6 is a very good lawn weed herbicide that can be used above 85 degrees and also is one of the best 'weed grass' herbicide you can use on your lawn grasses. I have never used anything better for crab grass as well as other weed grasses than Target 6, It also works in cool weather.
How long before rainfall?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will at least want to wait 24 hours before rainfall.
Does this work ok with tall fescue?
Larry A on Jun 29, 2018

Is this safe to use on grass?
Alok P on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is safe on Bermuda grass. My yard also has centepeed grass and I have not had any issues on it as well. Grass will turn partially yellow for a couple weeks but it bounces back green with watering.

Works great on killing crab grass and dalligrass.

Kyllinga Weed Eliminater
I have only sprayed a 1 gallon mix one time on the weeds outside my privacy fence. It seems to be working on the Kyllinga Weed.
The weather has turned to cold to do a second treatment. I will try again in the Spring.
I didn’t spray inside my fence because MSMA contains Arsenic and I didn’t want my dogs to get into it. I will work something out when the weather warms up again in the Spring. Be sure to read the label.

Worth every penny
The product was not cheap when you kick in freight (to Hawaii). But, it was worth it since there is no product like it in the retail stores here, and it totally knocked out my crabgrass problem without harming my zoya grass lawn. Delivery was on time and without any glitches. Highly recommended---both company and product.

Kills Sandburs and that makes me happy.
I have these little monsters growing all over my yard. I did my research and found this stuff does the trick killing them. Don't even try using the junk like weed and feed or weed killer. In about a day maybe two you can tell it is working. I mix it about 2 or 3 ounces per gallon and it doesn't kill my grass (Bermuda).

King Ranch Blue Stem eradicator
I have used MSMA to kill King Ranch Blue Stem that invaded my bermuda and st.augustine grass lawn with success. I used a mix developed by Texas A and M. My lawn is now invaded with KR blue stem and I plan to use Target 6 Plus to attack it again. Though it is not recommended for St Augustine, it has worked for me. The St Augustine took longer to recover than Bermuda , but recovered in about 3 weeks.

Works GREAT on grass burrs (sand burrs)
I had a YARD full of grass burrs and not even the products I had bought at the local nursery would kill them without killing my grass. This product worked GREAT! Applied at 1 1/2 oz for 2 gallons water. Didn’t hurt my lawn (fescue and Kentucky bluegrass) and the grassburrs were almost completely dead in a week. This was even after a small shower three hours after it was applied. I’m impressed !!!
