Have a couple of lawns where the crabgrass has gotten out of control. Is Trimec Plus going to be a good solution right now?

All suggestions appreciated!

I used Drive last week. Spot spray-hand sprayer. It worked very nicely--crabgrass is now brown. Used crop oil as surfactant.

I use it, never had a problem, I usually put it down late in the day, when the sun is at its minimum, so it don't burn

Its great for spot spraying but after July 1 watch yourself if your gonna blanket it. Make sure that its below 85 for a couple of days. I spot spray it all the time year round its my favorite.

trimec plus will smoke fine fescues. There is a point in the summer i think 4th tiller where drive wont touch it, then after 4th tiller it works again weird.

ditto, i notice this as well with quinclorac
typically have to treat 2x with quinclorac to kill tillering crab

but msma or trimec plus, is a great cost effective tool to have in
your arsenal, just need some experience on when and how to use

Look-up Quincept from (NUFARM) has a full load of quinclorac in it, or drive xclr8 in the liquid form, which stays in suspension.Thumbs Up
