when are you guys going to start first app. for crab control
What part of Delaware are you from?
March 3rd. Starting at lower end of territory(south) and working north.
We cover a spread of 100 miles total, so southern accounts are about 2 weeks ahead of
the north accounts.
Whenever the proper soil temperatures tell me.
I'm slightly north of you, but started 2nd week of April last year and got excellent results using Dimension. Unless your splitting apps, I'd wait another month. But then I don't know your climate in DE.
I start beginning of March, but do a split app, the second app being in April
Judging by the soil temps, even here in kansas, there's still going to be quite a while before they get to the magic 55 degrees.
Iv'e seen many guys around here slinging preemergent, both liquid and dry, for the last 2 weeks. The weather has been pretty cold most of the time, the soil temps are just above freezing. There's no need to run out that early and get it put down. Most people don't have any way to water it in anyway! Their sprinklers are still shut down and most don't want to start them up till it warms up. Don't want to rely on mother nature to provide that perfect 1/2 inch of water either.
Thats funny. 98% of my customers are irrigated by Mother Nature. The ONE account I have that IS irrigated is only partially irrigated.
LOL, I guess that the number of accounts you have has something to do with when you start also, doesn't it?
Very good point GC.
