Re: Bermuda out of Centipede

Sethoxydim+Tenacity or Sethoxydim + Pylex. If the soil is not acid enough and is rich in P, Bermuda has the upper hand over Centipede

Re: Spurge?

@Greendoc Wow! you make a really good point with the soil temps. What is the lowest soil temps you see in HNL. Mid 70s. Normally it is too hot for Poa Annua to germinate. But, last year, there was a 2 month period from January-February where daytime temperatures were literally 70 and 55 at night. P...

Re: Spurge?

I am not familiar with applying according to ground temperature because every month of the year is weed season for me. But, if you start seeing Spurge in July, that means your Isoxaben should go down in Late May/early June or else the second application of your Prodiamine split if you apply 2 applic...

Re: Toro greensmaster accessories question

I can recommend the Clip Kit for working on grass kept above 3/8. I have the Clip Kit installed on a GM 1000 and it has just about eliminated issues with stragglers when the mower is used at a HOC above 0.3 but below 0.7.

Re: Things Turned Disastrous

Had a bad case of TARR, had my neighbors lawn guy confirm this for me. Azoxy was okay Eagle was minutely effective (but not really) Propiconazole (not so much) Clearys 3336F @ 4oz/gallon/1000 anhillated my TARR. Afterwards i put down some peat, but my grass is 4.5 inches tall. Can also use: https:/...

Re: 2- even 3-nozzle booms on *Backpack* BATTERY-pwr’ed sprayers?

The brass and stainless steel pumps on the Tomahawk sprayers are capable of serious output. Like being able to drive 3 AI 110-04 nozzles at once

Re: Prodiamine(Barricade) + Isoxaben (Gallery) Combo Fall Application

Even a lb of Isoxaben per acre is too rich for the blood of most pros. Unless you have one committed to providing a first class service rather than walking your lawn with a backpack of three way at every visit.

Re: 2- even 3-nozzle booms on *Backpack* BATTERY-pwr’ed sprayers?

You are all running into the limited volume of the electric pump. 2 nozzles or 3 nozzles can be fitted but then each nozzle can only output 0.1-0.2 GPM. Fan nozzles that small also dispense very small droplets.

Re: Blindside Herbicide 2nd application

Temperature at time of application does not matter as much as conditions in the following 7 days after application. I prefer Quicksilver combined with other herbicides including MSM in the summer because of less tendency to damage grasses. Sulfentrazone is kept for the cooler parts of the year.

Those are very different indeed. I am using the 5000 PSI quick couplers normally used for pressure washers. They get re fitted with VIton o rings

Can I apply Feature with my 1 gal B&G sprayer?
You could, but I would find a bigger sprayer for areas more than 500 sq ft. I do use my B & G can for the rare lawn that is under 500 sq ft.

Re: Zeon Zoysia vs......????

The fungicides and nematicides I stock are applied to Zoysia 99% of the time. My need to replace a bedknife on my reel mower more than once a year and the reel annually is related to the fact that the majority of what I mow is either El Toro or Zeon Zoysia. If it were some kind of Bermuda, my reel a...

Re: Gas Engine Backpack Sprayer

@Greendoc, can I trouble you to detail the various wand attachments you use for your setup? I’m mainly interested in the three or four nozzle boom. Remember seeing you post a picture many weeks back but cannot seem to locate it. I have about 18k sqft of zoysia/Bermuda and think I have too many obst...

@Greendoc so you’re saying to use humichar? Humichar, Biochar, and whatever comes in a pretty package and is endorsed by youtube stars. Only change will be in your bank account. Nothing short of replacement of clay with sand actually fixes clay. What can be done is to grow grass, create root cyclin...

Re: Things Turned Disastrous

I look for blackened roots and little to no fine root hairs on those roots as symptoms of TARR. TARR is worse on alkaline soils and suppressed by elevated levels of micronutrients. I have not seen much TARR in my lawns since routinely applying chelated micronutrients as part of the nutrient program...

Re: Clay Soil Advice

If you are mowing with a greensmower reel low, your N requirements drop down to 0.5 or less per month of N with an equivalent amount of P and K unless you have perfect soil that has more than adequate P and K. Skip the organic stuff and anything you hear about on the internet. 1-1-1 is what the real...
