lesco 19-0-6 dimension in warm weather?

Suppose to be 90 degrees in Mass on Thursday. I have about 15 pre emergents to do that day using granular 19-0-6 with dimension. Anyone think I should hold off or will I be ok?

Thanks

I think it will be fine. Just my opinion.
Let us know what happens. OK?

Flinging fert and pre in hot weather, on vigorous green turf, should not be an issue.
If your turf is stressed though, don't do it.
Also if you are spraying 3 way when it is that hot.....don't do it.

Good point. I hope to test a 3-way during hot weather in the next two months. What temp results in injury? What rate? What if the grass is a bit dry? What if fert is applied also? What if surfactant is included? Anybody care to predict the results?
I can do the test if...it gets hot enough.

What about different grass species? I will probably be limited to what I can find around here.
From my results last week...clearly four herbicides at once is too much.

Isn't it a bit late in the season to be applying a pre for crabgrass?

I just did 3 lawns to day and my personal one to they had grass seed planted in the spring . mine is always the last to get done left overs

This guy is up north and they have had a late spring. Heck there's a ski resort in NY that had about 3 ft of snow the other day.

90 degrees? Right idea Camero! I suspect you are too late, OP.
HOWEVER, maybe the post emergent action of Dimension will save your ash.

1) It ain't too late for PRE. Probably may only need a 0.10 load of Dimension. (a 0.20 load is needed in my area). Dimension will prevent more weeds than just crabgrass. But if you are seeing crabgrass -- you would need to spray with liquid Dimension (hope that's not the case yet, cuz crabgrass here is less than one inch tall).

2) spreading slow release granular products will NEVER harm turf. imo

Elite -- I would use the product you have on hand Looks like rain moving your way very soon. Good timing IMO.
