We slice seeded with Trophy endophyte enhanced tall fescue and had great germination rates when applied before Oct 1st. We'll wait as long as possible to apply pre-emergent, but come early May at the latest, it will be down.
Cenlo, What rate are you putting CGM down at? From your previous post, it sounds like your putting it down at 5lbs..
