If you exceed the yearly rates you can cause root pruning or clubbing. Here is a good video and article about per -emergent`s. The guy in the video is very informative.

Iíve had great results with weed beater ultra. Mainly used it in a spot application to clean up what the pre emergence didnít handle.

Hopefully, these freezing temperatures will kill all the weeds! I did put down some weed killer stuff last week. Maybe the cold will help it work.

So our golf course super said he will be doing pre this month. I figure itís the right time for my Bermuda too then. Taking a cue from the pro, Iím going liquid this time with a dye marker. Didnít have my backpack sprayer last year when I put down barricade granules.

Happy to see that a bunch of that winter clover I hit with glyphosate 2 weeks ago is now dead. Thinking it was more freeze than the spraying.

I am in Guadalupe County and the average date of last freeze for us is March 21. Neil Sperry says 2 weeks prior to last frost, then 90 days later, then on/around Labor Day So, for me, it is Mar 7th, June 7th and Labor day.

Gents I held off on putting my Barricade down. Can I do it and 15-5-10 at the same time? Also I want to get some trace minerals down. Where should that application fall in line or can I just do it all consecutively

So my neighbor has tested a 7.2 and since we are all cut out of the same pecan orchard, I'm thinking mine is the same (but will get a test). If so, would I need to add lime for common bermuda?
