MSMA and Liquid iron??

I have some lawns that have spots of crabgrass coming up in them. I used msma at what i thought was a very light rate and I burnt some spot in the lawns. My question is can I mix iron with may msma and not have the burn? or will the iron make the msma in effective? Please help

Using iron is a good way to cover up the yellowing from msma. It won't totally cover it up but it helps. Bermuda will always yellow some, but we use about 1 oz per gallon in a backpack and never have burn. Maybe you are mixing right but applying too heavy? You can get away from the discoloration by using Drive, a lot more expensive but makes customers happy.

The temps were in the 80's when I sprayed. I probably got it a little too wet. I used 1 scoop of the water soluable powder msma in a 4 gallon back pack sprayer with sticker. Thanks for the help, Tony
