how not to do an application

Pulled up to mow one of my mowing and application customers today and couldn't help but notice how brown the neighbor's centipede lawn was. Well upon further inspection I noticed the following!! Maybe I should leave a card!

Nice. Looks like the guy may have had an early liquid lunch and was dancing in the yard while he was applying! Def. leave a card.

Was this a liquid job? Or a spreader? Or was he spreading it by hand?

It happens--first day on the job with a real big company. Everybody else got the good spreaders. Our rookie got the one with the rusted out or missing spinner cotter pin.

Seriously, one of our guys got a spreader one day that had been dropped off a truck. It only had a handle on the left side. Not a happy camper by 5 pm.

The photo on the left seems to have circular declining areas...........disease!

Photo 2 appears to be misapplication problems!!

Well--after further inspection........from my angle.............I can't help but comment that it looks like a cone nozzle applying something for broadleaf.

Well, maybe it was small aliens and that is their form of crop circles

Looks like a not so friendly competitor did a Gyl-by. Like a drive by only with roundup instead

Think Green has a good point. It really looks like a cone nozzle or flat fan used in some kind of wand or spray gun.

Clearly, the centipede was not equipped to handle this stuff.
