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.

UncleMAtt on May 8, 2017

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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...
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 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
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.
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 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..
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

Larry A on Jun 29, 2018

Alok P on May 19, 2018

Has anyone tried applying when it’s cooler? 60-75? We’re the results just less effective but still noticeable?
Dane L on Mar 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If applied during cooler temperatures the result time frame would only be extended. For optimal results apply the product when temperatures are ranging in the 80s.
Will this product kill grassburrs?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend thinking about using a pre-emergent this spring to control grass spurs.

How long should you wait to mow before and after each application of MSMA for dallisgrass control?
Genna P on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in Lubbock, TX and mow approx 3 days before applying MSMA and then depending on outside temps and how fast my bermuda grass grows, I mow 7-14 days after application. I keep the height of my bermuda at approx 2 inches during active growing season.
Will mama kill watermelon vines?

I am concerned about using this product around my pets. What is your recommendation?
Aline T on Jun 21, 2018

Read instructions carefully. You should be able to download the instructions before purchase.
Will msma kill clover and dandelions?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. My yard is Bermuda grass, and I've had any weed imaginable. It's kills everything I sprayed. Not quickly like round up, but over several days to a week, including the Bermuda where I sprayed it turned brown. I was rather peeved at first, but low and behold, a couple weeks later, the Bermuda came right back, free of weeds. It definitely works better if you use it after mowing. The instructions also say to cut grass and weeds down to 1 inch I believe.
Is it possible to use with a hose end dial type sprayer?
Jerry on Feb 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: What does the manufacturer recommend?

I don’t know why it couldn’t be sprayed by hose?

I use a 25 gallon sprayer with an electrical pump.

The product has been very successful ridding my yard of crab grass.

#1 on the market. Banned in the US!
Only after 4 tablespoons and 1 treatment my lawn looks like an entirely new lawn. I wouldnt have believed it but i knew the ingredients were what it takes to do the trick if you have a bermuda lawn. Cant getthe product in the US anymore. Stop trying hundreds of different products. This is all you need for a golf course type lawn!

good product.
I'm satisfied with the ease of application and follow-up. I would like a half-gallon size container and a measuring cap because this is a heavy product. Much heavier than water so it is a bit un-wieldy to pour.

Crabgrass war
Bought ajoining lot that had not been landscaped or seeded. When i tilled it up and seeded with Bermuda the dormant crabgrass exploded! I had 100% crabgrass. After two treatments with MSMA-6 the crabgrass is undercontrol and my Bermuda is growing. Hopfully Bermuda will establish itself that with pre-emergent treament in the spring I will win the crabgrass war!

An Old Friend
MSMA kills everything but your bermudagrass; perfect for pastures. spray twice a year only! Springtime when johnsongrass and all those nasty weed grasses get about 6" tall - you Bermuda should still be dormant. Spray after last fall when you fertilize and get your last cutting. bad weeds will arise quickly and nail them a few weeks after they sprout.

This product is great and powerful, it recommends 2oz per gallon but I would scale it back to 1.5oz per gallon. It does what it says. Took care of my crab and dallis weeds.

Great stuff
This stuff works great to kill crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Works better the hotter the weather is. I saw results in a few days. After the grassy weeds are gone I feed my Bermuda grass and it goes crazy. Best stuff out there to get grassy weeds under control.
