    I have a few clients along golf course fairways that seem to be getting bermuda in the fescue..
    Burning it down with glyphosphate and split seeding after this year of course.
    But has anyone had luck with a in season herbcide or better yet any type of prevention.. Sodded fescue lawns most are a good distance from the Bermuda fairways. Not a bit of crab so I know my split applications of dimesion have been effect...

    Oh well let me know if you can help..

    Spot treat the Bermuda with Fusilade when it is actively growing. If it is near dormancy, the Fusilade will not be effective.
  3. I honestly believe that stuff could come through a nuclear blast intact.

    I have seen the stuff growing through a 1 yr old layer of black top...and it keeps on growing. Pushed right through 3" of black top???

    Would not have believed if I didn't see it.
