Tire Tracks in Lawn

Post by Jagermeister »

Have any of you all ever had bronzing of your tire tracks in your lawn? I have been appling fertilizer plus FAS plus TNex all summer and this is the first time I have seen this. I didn't get crazy on too much fert or TNex on this app so not sure why this happened. Appreciate your thoughts.

I've noticed this in my yard before too. I only see it after spraying. I have a big yard and spray with a Mule side by side and tank sprayer. The time I noticed it made the most distinct lines was earlier this summer when I sprayed a tank mix that included 3-way and I sprayed in the morning dew. It's almost like the spray solution gets on the tires then burns the blades in the tire tracks, but I'm not sure. I never got around to asking on here, so I'm curious to see what kind of replies you get.

I've had it happen with my boots leaving marks while spraying AS but it recovered quickly.
