Fescue Turf Question

Guys,

I have a lawn that had Fescue sod put on it about 2 years ago. Do you spray a good 3 way herb or MSMA on this turf to kill broad leaf or grassy weeds? Another question is what do you guys spray on St Aug and Centipede to get grassy weeds (dalisgrass, crab grass, etc.) out of the grass since it is so sensitive? I spray Trimec Southern on the broad leaf weeds. BTW i am licensed in Alabama. Thanks

Don't know much about the Fescue. I do know on the St Augustine you are SOL on the Dallis grass [unless someone else has a miracle treatment], as for the Crab grass a good pre m will help and Atrazine will help with the post emergent. On the broad leaf I just pay attention to the temp, it does not matter too much on Bermuda but on the St Augustine I try to stay close to the LABEL instructions. Just be sure to read the LABLE on whatever you are wanting to apply.

BTW, do not use the MSMA on the St Augustine

Depends on what kind of fescue, and the temps. A fine fescue and heat will not tolerate most weed killer products.
