Re: Velocity and triv

Ok it’s been 4 weeks, looks really good. I’m feeling confident it’s a total kill. You checking to see if the roots are dead also? I've sprayed triv several times with glyphosate were all top and roots appear to be dead only to have a minor amount of root/stolon left that came to life again . Now I ...

Re: Please help with identifying

Poa triv or orchardgrass removal in a cool season grass is the same: dig it out with roots or spray glyphosate to kill down to the roots, then sod or re-seed. You might be able to send in digital samples to your state extension office so they can ID the plants. http://wyoming.cce.cornell.edu/agricul...

Re: Weed Grass help!

Hard to tell what area and plant you're concerned about. It kinda looks like fescue with some cut seed head stalks you're looking at.

Re: Get rid of Poa Trivialis

Doesn’t make sense to me unless pre-em can prevent stolons from coming above ground. I’ve not seen Triv seed. Here’s a poa triv with seed head. I’ve pulled others as well. https://i.postimg.cc/W3bpbsY1/D474-FF2-B-D993-46-B2-AD6-F-2148-DF3-D7-EE8.jpg How is your trivialis getting that tall in the la...

Re: Soil test sample cores

I guess it would depend on the lab and their procedures. If just a couple of weeks might be okay. A couple years ago I sent in a soil sample to Va Tech right when all the farms were sending in samples (bad timing on my part), the farms had processing priority and mine took 3 to 4 weeks to process.

Re: Powhatan's 2021 Lawn Journal

Sprayed N-Ext RGS @ 6oz/M rate, to help roots grow deeper before the summer stress. I've noticed in years past that latter half of May in my area when air temps and humidity are consistently higher is when fungal disease symptoms ( mycelium and/or dark areas ) begin to become noticeable. Last year d...
