Re: Is Bullseye Gone?

The "current" Prime Time mix is

33.13% Hot Rod Tall Fescue
33.05% Firebird 2 Tall Fescue
32.90% Turbo RZ Tall Fescue

It used to be 1/3 Bullseye.

Re: Triclopyr 61% mixing rates

Ester or amine would be on the label. I would say you are good with 3 hours before the rain.

Here is a link comparing amine and ester formulations.

Re: Triclopyr 61% mixing rates

I use the high rate of 3/4 (0.75) oz of 61% to a gallon of water. My backpack sprayer is 4 gallons and I add 3 oz + NIS for a full fill.

Low rate is half of the high rate on my label.

Re: Need Seed Advice

I have seeded as late as 10/31 and had good germination. If you don't have seed and want to have a go at it, SLE over on Murfreesboro Rd (across from Publix between Antioch and Lavergne) has a decent TTTF blend called Prime Time for about $70/50 lbs. You can always go up to Springfield and see Bob H...

Re: Possible brown patch, clumping fescue, where did I go wrong???

High fertilization rates promote BP in my transition zone region. I did fertilize this year but that was on March 15th.

I would look into a strobin fungicide product such as azoxystrobin (Heritage, Strobe, one more "generic" that I can't recall the name) if you want a curative remedy.

If the stem feels triangular then it is probably sedge.

Re: Managing Fescue During HOT Summers - Philosophy?

I like Bullseye. I used to could get 50 lb bags but last year I overseeded with the Prime Time blend that I can pick up locally for a pretty good price. It always has Bullseye plus two or three other cultivars.
