Re: Zone 7a Maryland TTTF to Hybrid Bermuda Conversion

If you could post some pictures of the concerned area and at what time of day they were taken we could make an educated guess on if the grass will survive or not. Most bermuda needs 6-8 hours of sunlight to grow healthy otherwise it may become thin.

Re: Ferrous Ammonium Sulfate | Liquid Iron for Lawns

I know some people have replaced FAS with things like Feature/Main Event, to get chelated iron and to get a few micros, but has anyone ever tried to "roll your own" with micros by adding them individually to the DIY FAS? Boron, copper, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, zinc? Or is it not worth the ...

Re: Ferrous Ammonium Sulfate | Liquid Iron for Lawns

If the Ferrous Sulfate is left open in a humid southeast climate for a whole summer in the garage, could oxidizing reduce the efficacy of it? Or can it oxidize, if it is chelated? The impact of FAS on my lawn this fall seems less, and wondering if oxidization is at play here or if it is just in my ...

Re: Winter Glyphosate/Killing off Common Bermuda

If it's still a little green, I would go ahead and hit it with the Gly/Fusilade combo but wait for a warm day to do it as it will be more likely the grass will absorb more of the product. You can also add a little bit of Nitrogen to the mix to help it along if you have any water soluble stuff around...

Re: When to stop irrigating for winter

If it’s dormant there is no need to water. I would just shut it down for the year.

Re: Beater Reel?

I think if you can find a good deal and you have the space it’s not a bad idea. I have a “beater” bedknife that I use and install when doing things like scalping or mowing after sanding. With Baroness it seems like the befknife dulls before the reel does.

Re: Do you use liquid Silica?

I've been using it off and on the last 2 years and while I think it does do "something" I'm not quite sure if it's worth the money or not. You won't be able to physically see anything different after using it but my grass did seem like it was a little more firm as in the grass blades seemed stiffer ...

Re: Ammonium nitrate 34-0-0 question

With all of this being said you are just better off using Ammonium Sulfate(21-0-0) or Urea (46-0-0) both can be found relatively cheaply and easily. And Nitrogen is Nitrogen for the most part.

Re: Winter Glyphosate/Killing off Common Bermuda

If you are wanting to kill off bermuda, the best time is to spray it is in the Fall right before it goes to sleep as it will draw in the chemicals deeper as it is storing food for Winter. You would want to spray it with a Glyphosate/Fusilade combo at least twice before it goes dormant at least 2 wee...

Re: Any Product Suggestions for My Crazy Soil Test?

I just looked at some of my past soil tests and it looks like if you add 20 lbs of lime per 1,000 sq/ft you should be good. As long as you get some rain to wash it in and your soil isn't frozen all winter you should be good. You need to worry about the soil temperature and not the air temperature. I...

Re: Any Product Suggestions for My Crazy Soil Test?

You should be able to find lime at your local Home Depot or Lowe’s for pretty cheap. I want to say it’s something like 30-50 lbs of lime per 1,000 sq/ft but don’t quote me on that. I’ll have to look when I get home from work. As long as the soil isn’t frozen you can apply lime. This is almost the pe...

Re: Lawn fungus

I'm no scientist but I would think with the cold weather over the Winter the fungus isn't really going to survive very well and then when you scalp in the Spring you will be removing the majority of it. I think it all depends on what kind of fungus it was but me personally, I wouldn't worry about it...

Re: Would a spike aerator help at all?

I don't think it will hurt anything but it won't do anything close to what a verticutter will do. Depending on how deep you can get the spikes to go it will help with water and air infiltration into the soil.

Re: How long does P & K last

Phosphorus doesn't usually get depleted from the soil too fast and is pretty stable for the most part. Potassium on the other hand is the second most used nutrient behind Nitrogen and can get used up but I assume you are mulch mowing your clippings back into the lawn which helps supply Potassium bac...

Good call @Theycallmemrr I forgot my potassium nitrate also has a little nitrogen in it. I'll probably just hold off unless I can go find some 0-0-50 or 60. Also wasn't 100% sure if the potassium is foliar absorbed. I had been using my larger droplet spray nozzles and putting it in with my soil ame...

Re: Any Product Suggestions for My Crazy Soil Test?

Where did you get this soil test done at? Did it not recommend how much lime to apply? I think all you need is some Lime and Iron(Feature or Main Event) and go with a straight nitrogen source like Urea(46-0-0) and retest this time next year and see where you are at.

Re: Any Product Suggestions for My Crazy Soil Test?

Is this all the info you got from the soil test? There are no numbers or any other information? There is no way to give any kind of accurate recommendations without more information as we don't even know what "optimal" really is in accordance with this test.

Re: MQ's Lawn Journal

Try Pestrong/KORUSA. Pestrong

I think they are in your local area and should have a warehouse. I would think there prices would be cheaper since they aren’t shipping it. I’m not 100% sure though, just an idea.
