Re: Post emergent crabgrass killer approved in NY

The real story is crazy and convoluted. Quinclorac is NOT prohibited in NY. To prove that that is true, look at any bottle of WBG + Crabgrass Killer in NY. Yup, Quinclorac is right on the label. Because of potential issues with Quinclorac reaching the water table, it is limited in the size of bottl...

Re: Can you apply both Prodiamine and Dimension during the same season?

Yes and common. Dithiopyr/Dimension in spring as it’s good against crabgrass. Prodiamine in mid to late August due to Long residual to get through winter. I don’t like year round prodiamine as if you need to reseed the Long residual can bite you and it is a root clipper so I like the dual approach

Re: Round Up Alternative

Here are a few articles detailing the 'genuine risk' of indiscriminate use of roundup and other common herbicides. One can easily destroy crops and plants of their own and neighbors. https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/protecting_tomatoes_from_herbicide_drift https://www.dtnpf.com/agriculture/web/ag/crop...

Re: Let it go dormant?

You have to either commit to the watering to keep it green or if not then dormancy it is. No magic potion with cool season grass and consistent 85+ weather.

Re: Irrigation after Serenade?

I think what I am seeing is rust. But I will keep an eye on it. Any opinion about whether rain will wash it off the grass blades? Rain will wash off the serenade. If you micro feed the lawn with something like liquid iron that has Low dose N you can try and push the growth slightly. I’m not concern...

Re: Round Up Alternative

I was also considering the Natria concentrate, Ive used the spray in garden beds with good success on grasses but just curious if anyone has done a blanket spray with it for a reno. If not I may just have to be the guinea pig. You could always try and burn the lawn with a massive dose of urea lol O...

Re: Irrigation after Serenade?

I sprayed serenade and we had a torrential downpour about 4-5 hours later. Did that likely wash the serenade off the grass blades? I sense disease pressure. Should I reapply? If you have active disease it’s likely too late. I went systemic and stopped mine. The the most expensive part of having a h...

Not against herbicides altogether just specifically RU/glyphosate.
If that’s the case I would just overseed and eliminate weeds.

Often time it’s just improving the soil and eliminating weeds which gets most people to “good enough”

Re: Round Up Alternative

If She is against RU is she also against herbicides? If you don’t burn down the existing lawn you have to learn to live with the mix stand. Solar burn down of 15k is not practical. Nothing wrong if you want 100% chem free but realistically there are limits to how far you can get by doing so. Mother ...

Like others, I have a dedicated sprayer for RU. Even still I flush it out after ever use and dump the rinsate in a safe area and not anywhere near the grass

Re: HOC for fungicide app

Not sure it it makes a difference with the HOC but be prepared for two or three apps to stop the dollar spot if you have a lot of it. Walking, mowing, etc can spread it around. Bagging is a good idea for now. I bailed on the low dose big box products and went with Propiconazole 14.3 and then rotated...

Re: Tenacity Expiration Date

Selfsame answer. I'm still working on my first bottle, vintage 2011 or so--ish. It still works like the day I bought it, and my storage is awful. In the garage, which oscillates between below freezing and above ninety. So far, I'm finding most of the standard herbicides, most of which I keep around...

Re: Tenacity on newly seeded lawn

I’m going to disagree about Tenacity not wiping out crabgrass on an existing lawn. Ive had Quinclorac fail to kill the mature stuff. Three apps of Tenacity and it wiped out my crabgrass and by late summer I had a weed free lawn. Spring seeding was my only option that year. I documented the whole thi...

Re: Fescue Lawn Care | Northern VA

Heat and humidity create the conditions for fungus. Serenade is a preventative for fungus. Too late for that Propiconizole is a fungicide. You can buy the bottle or granular form at Lowe’s but it’s not as good as the 14.3% I mentioned above. It won’t kill your lawn as Long as it’s not Pythiumor acth...
