Celsius WG Herbicide - Warm SeasonTurf Types
Celsius WG Herbicide got it's name from "Celsius (°C) ", temperature degree. Unlike other herbicides, Celsius WG can be applied when the weather is unbearably hot, even when temperatures exceed 90 degrees (reducing risk of phytotoxicity).
As a post-emergent herbicide, it works very well on southern grasses such as St. Augustine, without fear of damaging turf.
Celsius WG is a selective herbicide providing a broad spectrum of weed control with it's three active ingredients.
How does Celsius WG work?
Weeds quit growing within a few hours, by a combination of active ingredients that not only stop the weed growth by inhibiting weed growth, but combines with an ingredient that reduces the probability of resistance. Look for a yellowing or reddening/purpling to necrosis that will control the weeds within 1-4 weeks.The speed of weed control will vary with temperature and will be faster at warmer temperatures, or the soil is adequately moist for weed growth.
Weed control may be reduced if application occurs during heavy dew, fog, and mist/rain or when weeds are under stress due to drought.
Top Celsius WG Herbicide Benefits
- Safe for use year round on many warm-season turf types.
- Celsius controls more than 150 weeds including many difficult-to-control broadleaf and grassy weeds.
- The soil activity of Celsius provides a barrier of control for up to 60 days after the application.

Celsius WG Herbicide Cautions:
Do not use Celsius WG on cool season grasses including fescue, bluegrass, ryegrass or bentgrass.
To help penetrate the natural waxy tissue barrier of plants, use a surfactant such as Alligare Surface Surfactant
Damage to sensitive non-targeted plants can occur as a result of spray drift. Use of a marking dye to see where you have applied Celsius WG Herbicide will help avoid injury to non-target plants.
