Re: Help: Concentration units and dilutions - For Morph (or anyone who is knowledgeable about Chemistry)

One thing to note is that the CDC does not state that benzalkonium chloride reliably kills COVID-19 (quite the opposite, actually). May I recommend ethanol as well? That's interesting...but I'm targeting making an exact replica of the pre-made wipes that everyone has been using. It does list human ...

Re: Help: Concentration units and dilutions - For Morph (or anyone who is knowledgeable about Chemistry)

You're going to need to be a lot more specific. :-) Ok, I'm dealing with QUATs. (Making my own disinfecting wipes.) The Clorox brand wipes state 0.184% of both Benalkonium Chloride and Dimethyl Ethylbenzyl Ammonium Chloride. But I'm not sure if that's per volume...? I have stock solution that is 10...

Interesting. What state is this stuff from? And did your respective stores still have Millo alongside it? I'm not picky...just curious.

Help: Concentration units and dilutions - For Morph (or anyone who is knowledgeable about Chemistry)

I'm diluting a stock solution of a disinfecting product into distilled H20. I cannot figure out what the percentages listed on products actually mean... I assumed it was in terms of V/V. If so, I could use (C1)(V1) = (C2)(V2). And it would be straight forward. I checked some MSDS sheets, and they do...

Re: Is this the correct plan for killing bentgrass with tenacity?

Are you sure it's not Nimblewill, or that some could be? If so, you really need to be on it ASAP, before it goes dormant. I'm in the middle of that right now. Otherwise, the only thing I'll add is spray subsequent apps when it goes very white from the previous app, making sure to use your NIS.

Re: How many weeks when it's green again?

Quick question:
You state you did water somewhat. Was this just to prevent it from potentially dying in an extended period without rain?

Also, please continue posting updates as it recovers. Always nice to see the followups.

Re: Weed I.d.

Prostrate Knotweed...not Spurge, because the leaves are alternating. Best thing you can do is to apply several rounds of pre and post emergents that are labeled for it starting in late Winter or very early Spring as soon as the ground thaws. But some pre emergents are better than others. I controlle...

Good luck. I am seeding tomorrow on my reno area. I'm like a month late, considering the area gets shade (which is not ideal for KBG anyway). Not sure how it's going to work, but you're not the only one. Southern PA has more time left than Central CT anyway...an additional 2 weeks or so. You're not ...

Re: Source for Urea or AS in CT?

Yeah, Valley Green tends to be excellent. Never been to the Norwalk location, but they're all the same roughly. There is also SiteOne. And I've heard of a place near your area called TreeLand, that some members use.

Wally, I got the same stuff, with the intention of killing what I believe is a Paspalum of some type. I'm not going to overthink it...my plan is to mix up the amount that is supposed to be used in 1,000 square feet in water. Usually, things tend to default to one gallon, so it's probably not far off...

Re: Green: 2020 Soil Tests

Andy,

Many thanks.

Seven Springs Farm has Sul-Po-Mag, and I was about to order some Serenade from them, so it might make sense to add that into the order. What's my application rate and timing if I go that route?

Pway, good info. Most likely residential lawn approval, if it happens, is some time away. This is my first time following this sort of thing, so I don't know how others have played out. But when it comes, it'll probably be super expensive as well. But let's give it time and keep following the result...

Re: Slice seeding prep

If they have a good machine, it's viable. But most of the ones you rent are Blue, and are nothing more than vertical mowers...they are notorious for not dropping seed correctly, so the trick is to use a spreader to apply the seed after running the machine. There are some bigger, heavier machines by ...

I can confirm what I wrote last week. The seed I ordered to keep around for any potential repairs arrived. The sales slip states "discontinued" next to America. Seed usually lasts a few years when I store it. After that, no more repairs with America KBG seed, I guess...only transplanting plugs of th...
