Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

Had a few cold mornings and a frost last week. One morning got down to 32 degrees for a little while just before sunrise. Rough cut strip at 2.75" HOC between my yard and neighbors already showing tiger stripes. Looks like it will be warm a little longer now so we'll see how long the turf hangs on. ...

Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

Beautiful day for a mow yesterday. The turf is striping well at 9/16" hoc. Nice bright sunshine always helps make those stripes pop too! I went ahead and sprayed another round of 0-0-52, micronutrients, and kelp after mowing. I also included bifenthrin and imidacloprid in the mix for insects, mainly...

Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

Fall is almost here and the temperatures are actually feeling like it for now. Got in a nice mow yesterday afternoon, hoc is now at 9/16". I haven't applied any nitrogen since late August and have only been fertilizing with 0-0-52, micronutrients, and kelp extract since then. My total amount of nitr...

Re: Cbagz’s Lawn Journey Journal

The msma will be your cheapest selective herbicide option for the dallisgrass. The other selectives available are $$$(tribute total). If you have small areas glyphosate is easy to paint on or dab on with q-tips as @JRS 9572 mentioned.

Re: Switching to rotary from reel late season

But again, note the OP’s question was about switching to rotary at the end of the season - not whether or not he should raise his reel HOC by 0.100”. Are there any benefits or advantages of switching back to a rotary cut for a higher HOC (.75 to 1.5") as the season comes to an end? True. I should a...

Re: Switching to rotary from reel late season

Increase of hoc in the fall by 0.1" - 0.2" when growth begins to slow can help the turf with carbohydrate production and storage in the roots.

@voidsherpa put a CF valve right before each nozzle. This is how I have my boom setup. Very little, if any dripping from nozzles.

Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

ZeonJNix thanks. I've been having problems with it recurring in the same area. I got it to clear up, but like yours, it came back. I am planning to do another fungicide app in a week which will be 14 days since the last one. The Armada worked pretty good. I can do one more app of it then I'll have ...

Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

Mowed yesterday afternoon before the daily thunderstorm, 1/2" hoc. The dollar spot seems to be going away and the infected areas are beginning to recover. For my last T-Nex application I increased the rate to 0.25oz/M. I also added some soluble 0-0-52 in the mix. Tank mix consisted of liquid 30-0-0 ...

Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

I made a fungicide application this evening due to a dollar spot outbreak. The main issue is on the side yard mostly, but it is becoming present throughout. It's rained almost every afternoon/evening this week leaving the turf wet for extended periods. I applied Armada 50 wdg at 1.5oz/M since diseas...

How tight is your reel to bedknife? It looks like it could be rifling.

Re: Brodgers88's Latitude 36 Bermuda Lawn

An evening spray application is always an enjoyable activity :nod: Tonight I applied T-Nex, nitrogen, micronutrients, and kelp. I switched over to a liquid 30-0-0 nitrogen which is also 60% slow release. I like the ease of mixing and seems to be working pretty well on the turf. I've increased my T-N...
