I need something that is seeded. I cant afford to do plugs or sod (so St Augustine is out of the question since it doesnt come with seed).

Re: Soil Test Results/Please Help/Confirm My Thinking

Based on the soil savvy report, I wouldn't put down more than one dose of milo a year. Your P is perfect and Milo is heavy in P. Consider using a fert without any P. That is also their recommendation. Most here don't recommend soil savvy as they don't disclose their testing procedures and they only ...

Re: Calcium to Magnesium ratio

I was really impressed with the HyR Brix's 10-9-10.. HyR Brix fertilizer is the complete package of nutrients with N-P-K.. Carbon X 24-0-4 is going to be great fertilizer I don't think it's a complete package.. No -P- very little -K no calcium but it does have it's place in turf like AMS.. I do pla...

Re: Overseeding with the same cultivators

Most probably prefer the same overall look (leaf width, color, growth rate). I'm sure that's the same reason the warm season are almost all monocultures. Of course, if you get hit by disease, a monoculture is not the best choice....

Re: KBG Overseed

If use is low, it's worth a try. I guess, it really depends more on the budget for experimentation. Check out this.

Re: Thoughts On My Spring 2019 Plan of Attack

Poa annua tends to die in hot summers. Personally, I wouldn't be concerned about what is there now but focus on using tenacity, ethofumesate, and prodiamine as pre-emergents to stop new plants. After summer, all the poa annua will be gone but you'll have a large seed bank waiting until fall to start...

Maybe you could add diquat as a kicker to help speed up burndown. Not sure how that will affect the bermuda though.

Re: Treating/preventing dollar spot

Interesting. I’ve never sprayed THAT product - usually stick to brand name Daconil - and I’ve never seen the label read like that. I can’t see how that generic would do any good (sales on the market) vs the exact same product (daconil weatherstik) that requires no respirator. http://www.syngenta-us...

Re: Poa - What to do?

I've had great results with a pre-m combo of tenacity and ethofumesate. 2 apps in the fall of both and one app in the spring of ethofumesate. Done yearly, I don't have any more poa annua. With TTTF, you can also seed too!

Re: Thoughts On My Spring 2019 Plan of Attack

Have you looked into poa constrictor/ethofumesate? That with tenacity works well to stop annua. I use both pre-m to stop it. 2 apps in the fall of tenacity and ethofumesate, and one app in the spring of ethofumesate. With TTTF, you can use it at seed down.

Re: Treating/preventing dollar spot

If spraying that, keep in mind the label says to use: A NIOSH approved respirator with an organic vapor (OV) cartridge or canister with any N, R, P, or HE prefilter. Required use for enclosed areas. Page 3. I don't see anything about being inside or outside. May be fatal if inhaled. Harmful if swal...

Oh. Also, where you live, I would overseed mostly with KBG. Eventually, you may not need to overseed anymore!

Re: Slit Seeder Vs. Spreader

If you are overseeding, I wouldn't be concerned about hurting any existing grass. Even if you kill half of it, you are planting seed so it'll be even thicker. As for using a slit seeder vs core aerator, I prefer the core aerator for compacted soils. It looks terrible after you do it but once seeded ...

If you are only looking at N, yes milo is very expensive. With milo, you are paying for more than just N. Like heavy metals? Haha. Yeah...
