@MMoore I don't see why you can't cut it. I don't normally have the time to cut and spray back to back but go ahead and do it.

yeah we are having a bbq this weekend. I wanted to get the FAS down this morning but tonight will have to do.

im going to let my PGR go for a while and im going to watch how it rebounds. I might get one more PGR spray this year but maybe not... my kbg mix is growing pretty damn slow. I would be interested to know what types of kbg grasses are in that sod, because some grow a lot slower than others.... especially pronounced with the PGR.

Quick question...

Sprayed FAS for the first time yesterday evening.
Will it be ok to leave the FAS on the leaves for almost 24 hours and not water it in myself but wait for the rain forecasted in the evening?

Temperatures have been around 50f overnight and will be a high of 70f today.
I have only been doing this for one year, but I never rinse it off in the spring or fall like every one here. I don't have a sprinkler system and don't water manually unless there's seed down. I know, what a weirdo.

I have noticed darkening in high heat, so I spray FAS a day before forecasted rain when it's summer.

I dont rinse it off either unless the forecasted high temp is going to get close to 85°F.
