Dimension has very little post -emergent activity, as far as I can see. (Unless you use it at the maximum rate.)

Same goes for the grass seed...too early to apply (mind you, irrigation isn't going in until Mid-May)? Or throw it in now?
We had a couple of hard freeze nights 2 wks ago. That would have taken out any crabgrass that possibly (but not likely) germinated b/f then. We are talking 23 degrees those nights, bye bye crabby.
Since then, we really haven't warmed up that well at all. I think you will be just fine running either Barricade or Dimension for the next couple weeks at least, longer for the Dimension. Soil temps are just not that warm now, my best guess is we are hovering around 50.
