Re: Chapin's new 20V Backpack Sprayer

I picked up a Chapin 20V sprayer this past weekend. I have it coupled to the TeeJet AIXR110025 purple air induction nozzle (for preventive fungicide application) but I think I will up-size to the blue or red next time I use it.

Re: Nitrogen, TTTF, and my first summer in TN.

Full disclosure: The grubs are not the problem, the raccoons like them for a midnight snack. That is why I put it down. First time for me.

And the Preds won!!! (3OTs and at 0103 hrs - not that I was conscious at the final whistle).

Re: Nitrogen, TTTF, and my first summer in TN.

First rule for lawn care is patience. I get the overdoing everything but it is good to slow down and take a walk through the lawn and observe once in a while rather than sling stuff with the spreader. I say that after I slung some grubex last week LOL. I have milorganite reserved for later (like in ...

Re: Nitrogen, TTTF, and my first summer in TN.

My TTTF gets N only in Sept - Oct, and winterizer in December or so (although I have started putting Milorganite down in mid to late August). Spring N applications can lead to summer problems with cool season turf in the mid-South. HOC: I am at 2.5" and want to keep the HOC at 3" or less. I have a l...

Re: Just sprayed Triclopyr and Tenacity

Side note, it rained about 4 hours after application, will that affect it at all? Most likely no. If you added an adjuvant, certainly not? I used Hi Yield Spreader Sticker but that isn't an adjuvant is it? I guess i need to do some reading on that Yes spreader sticker is an adjuvant. Helps the acti...

Grubex went down, hopefully will make the raccoons find another dining spot this fall.

Re: Just sprayed Triclopyr and Tenacity

Hi Zareth: I have sprayed Triclopyr at 0.75 oz/gal + Tenacity at 0.6 tsp (4 oz/acre) per gallon of water on TTTF a couple of times this spring. I think I read on the Tenacity label these were ok to tank mix together.

Agree with the member who said your front yard is looking good.
