Acclaim Extra Selective Herbicide

Acclaim Extra is a selective post-emergence herbicide that controls annual and perennial grasses in turf. A systematic herbicide that works in a single treatment, Acclaim is one of the only post-emergence herbicides that can control crabgrass and goosegrass effectively with good tolerance on desirable turf. And it does so in a wide range of growth stages – from spikes to 5-tillers.

And it does so in a wide range of growth stages – from spikes to 5-tillers.

Acclaim Extra is absorbed primarily through foliage. It’s most effective during periods of active weed growth, and is rainfast about one hour after drying. Susceptible weeds stop growing, turn red or purple, then die within one week.

Please Note: Broadleaf herbicides such as 2,4-D or MCPP may reduce the effectiveness of Acclaim Extra Herbicide. Do not apply Acclaim Extra within 21 days following a 2,4-D or MCPP application, or 5 days before a 2,4-D or MCPP application.

    5 of 5 stars  Acclaim Extra works well to supress bermuda grass in fescue
    By Charles in Mooresville on 06/25/2011
    Verified Purchase

    This product works great to suppress Bermuda grass in my tall fescue lawn. I mix it with turflon ester, herbicide helper surfactant, and colorant. This is the third year of applications and I have seen quite a reduction in Bermuda grass, as well as immediate short term suppression after each application of which I make 3 or 4 during the growing season. DoMyOwnpestControl.com has the best price on this item I have found. I see a review that it did not work well in crabgrass and found the following information helpful for that issue. “For killing crabgrass well after it has germinated (e.g., Acclaim Extra), but they are effective only at killing young crabgrass plants. Because these young crabgrass plants are small, they are very difficult to detect in a lawn rendering post emergent herbicides far less useful than pre emergent herbicides for killing crabgrass (Beaulieu, 2011). Reference Beaulieu, D. (2011). How to Kill Crabgrass.

    5 of 5 stars  Only thing that got rid of Japanese Stiltgrass
    By Lowell in Asheville, NC on 07/28/2012
    Verified Purchase

    I tried other selective herbicides, adding surfactant, but only Acclaim got rid of most of the Japanese Stiltgrass invading my lawn. Only drawback is its price!! After doing some research, it seems this product is about all that really works for lawns to control this specific weed.

    By Richard in Baltimore, MD on 08/15/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I purchased this thinking it wojuld be better than products I can get at Home depot. However, the Bayer All in One with Crabgrass control works better on Crabgrass. I also tried this on bermudagrass and it was completely ineffective. I have been following the directions to the letter and it just does not seem to work.

    5 of 5 stars  Japanese Stiltgrass is now under control.
    By Rick in Bluemont VA on 08/27/2012
    Verified Purchase

    Thanks to Acclaim! Roundup, which kills everything, was the only solution to rid Stiltgrass from my lawn. Two applications of Acclaim Extra Selective from a tank sprayer mixed with Adept surfactant are all that was needed…takes about 2 weeks to see results. Seems expensive but depending on the dilution 1 pint can make 80gal. 1 bottle should last me 3+ years.

    5 of 5 stars  Great product! Kills Japanese Stilt grass.
    By Scott in Baltimore, MD on 08/07/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Acclaim killed all the Japanese Stilt grass that had invaded my lawn. Be patient though because it takes about 7-10 days to work. The leaves will begin to yellow after 5-7 days and then brown after 10-14 days. Definitely purchase the recommended Surfactant also. You will use less Acclaim and be able to treat your lawn much faster with better results. Acclaim also kills crab grass and seems to have thinned out some annual Bermuda grass that had invaded my lawn. Tip: I use a clear cough medicine measuring cup to measure out the recommended amount (.46oz=14ml) for my one gallon tank sprayer.

    5 of 5 stars  Effectively kills stiltgrass
    By Rs in Phila, pa on 07/07/2015

    Awesome. Surfactant and dye are highly recommend. This is expensive stuff so you want to SEE where you are laying it down as well as making sure it coats rather than bead off the leaves. the blue dye gives a nice but subtle contrast. As always, wear a mask that will handle the vapor and latex/rubber gloves. Kill this crap before it takes over the forest and woods of the US.

    4 of 5 stars  Acclaim Extra/ Phenoxyprop-ethyl formulations
    By Steve in Lodi on 10/15/2014

    I have used this product with somewhat mixed success. As mentioned on label, it suppresses, but does not control bermuda. Suppression lasts anywhere from 3 months to 2 years. As commercial applicator, I have just begun using it on crabgrass. It seems to work a bit more consistently than Quinchlorac (Drive) based formulations and has less frequent side effect to fescue. For those of you who are not getting results from this product, note that a non ionic surfactant is listed for sale along with Acclaim. Use it. You might also go over how carefully you measured and applied product to lawn area. I figure application of 2 gallons of spray to 1000 sq ft. area at labeled rates. If you don't apply product at labeled rates and 2 gal/1000, it is not likely to work.

    4 of 5 stars  Acclaim Extra Selective Herbicide
    By Mike in Maryville, TN on 07/09/2014
    Verified Purchase

    I cannot give Acclaim Extra Selective Herbicide 5 stars because I'm reserving that for when they invent a magic bullet that kills bermuda grass dead without hurting fescue. But since Acclaim Extra does provide a tool for controlling (not killing) bermuda grass without killing my fescue, it does receive a good rating of 4 stars. About one spraying a month during warm weather keeps the bermuda grass sickly enough so it doesn't take over. Then comes cool weather and fescue can once again defend itself (about late September in east Tennessee).

    5 of 5 stars  Works Great
    By in Northern NJ on 08/23/2013
    Verified Purchase

    Just as described, it has worked against my crabgrass and a TON of Japanese Stiltgrass in my lawn. Both were treated late in the season so they were well established (which I knew wasn't optimal) but still worked really well. I used a handheld tank sprayer to apply. It should be noted that I didn't see ANYTHING for a week - then the weeds started turning colors.

    5 of 5 stars  Expensive but it works!
    By in Asheville, NC on 08/12/2013
    Verified Purchase

    I've had a problem with Japanese Stilt Grass growing in my lawn and none of three popular lawn herbicides would touch it. After hearing about Acclaim and seeing on the label it's intended for this weed, I bought some to try. It does work, if applied properly (I also used a surfactant to make the solution "stick" better to the blades of the weed). Although the price is high compared to other products, it was worth it to me to get rid of most of this invasive weed species by using a backpack sprayer and targeting it in 4000 sq. ft. of lawn. Also, I was pleased with the speed of delivery of this and other products from "youdoit."

QHow much Acclaim Extra Selective herbicide do I need to use to make one gallon of finished solution?

AAccording to page 4 of the Acclaim Extra Selective Herbicide product label "Hand-Held Sprayer Application for Spot Treatments: For hand-held pump-type sprayers, add 0.30 to 0.46 fluid ounce of Acclaim Extra Herbicide per gallon of water. Apply 0.30 fluid ounce per gallon of water when the grass weed is in the 1- to 4-leaf stage of growth. Apply 0.46 fluid ounce per gallon of water when the grass weed has 1 to 2 tillers. Spray target weeds thoroughly to the point of spray deposit runoff. Optimum results occur when spray coverage is thorough. The addition of a surfactant will improve coverage. A dye or colorant may be added to avoid spray pattern overlap."

QWould Acclaim Extra work to control Japanese Stiltgrass in Bermuda turfgrass?
The majority of the turf is bermuda, not sure of the type. I do not want to kill the bermuda turf, but the stilt grass is the main target.

A

Unfortunately, Japanese stiltgrass is not only extremely difficult to control with most chemicals, but it is also similar in plant structure to bermudagrass. This means if a product controls the stiltgrass, then it has the potential to damage, suppress or kill the bermudagrass that its sprayed on as well. This is the case with Acclaim Extra Selective Herbicide. Most customers will spot treat the stiltgrass with RoundUp and reseed with the desireable turfgrass to help reduce the chances of it coming back.
