Last year I had a real bad problem with Poa and what my Lesco rep was calling "Rescue Grass". Last year I used Simizine in the Fall And Aquacap in the Spring. Did anyone else have the same problems? If so what are you going to do different this year? Should I be using a different chemical?

Thanks

You need to put down a longer lasting Pre-emergent than Simazine in the fall and by a certain time, check with your local extension agent or Lesco. What you put down in spring has no effect on Poa or winter weeds. You can come back with the simazine later in the winter as a post/light pre application to hit what broke through the first Pre.

iAquacap is the same as normal Pre-m..I use Prograss for POA (in fact just did app #2 last week). 90% of POA is bye-bye.
