What is your proven methods for sandy loam soils.?
I have quite a few that is sandy loam and have to switch from Pendimethalin to Prodiamine and then finally to Simazine after frost.
This kicks my butt as it is time consuming but gets the job done. We don't have the long season of growing you do in the tropic zone...............I guess this is a big factor for you guys.
I'm not licensed to do lawn apps. But CG is a year round weed here. If we get a freeze, it will kill off what's there, but that is a big if. From GA north, you guys can pretty much count on CG to die in winter, not the same in Florida. In Florida, there are 3 certainties in life. Death, taxes, and year round Crabgrass.
