Hey guys. Sprayed msm on my annual rye 3 weeks ago. Most of it died however, I'm Still seeing some signs of some that wasnt totally killed. Bermuda is showing signs of greening up. Do I spray the remain annual ryegrass now or do i wait?
I'd wait it out, it'll be dying off in about 4 weeks, mow it low, and that'll help kill it too. I have to say that your yard definitely looked beautiful. I'm tempted to give my lawn a shot at overseeding too this year, but then again, I enjoyed the 4 month no-mow break.

Sulfentrazone is labeled to kill Annual Ryegrass and is recommended by NC State, that’s what I plan to use on mine https://www.turffiles.ncsu.edu/grasses/annual-ryegrass/
How well did it work on annual rye grass?

I'd just scalp the piss out of it. That'll stress the rye to the point that it'll stunt and the Bermuda will climb right over the rye crowns. Heat will kill off the leftovers.

When i lived in phoenix, my next door neighbor used swimming pool salt and low HOC to knock the PRG down. Don't know the application rate, but it worked like a charm.
