    Hey there - I have been using msma but no longer and I am out. What else are you guys using? My calander says 32 days of no rain and first day in the 80's was today. or eles been 90+ all month long.

    Use Drive XLR8. Use the maximum rate at this date. Include surfactant.

    i agree, and if you can always mix it with 3 way for really nasty bad lawns.

    it is not as "hot" as msma and imp not quite the awesome burn down you are accustomed to with msma

    why are we not choosing generic Quinclorac? My math says its a much more aggressive price...

    I'm having good results with tenacity applied with a surfactant.
    You will need at least 2 apps a week apart three is best though. It will also get rid of poa,nut sage and a bunch more.I do not do a large volume of lawns so I can afford the time it takes.
    I'm posting this so much I feel like a sales rep.LOL!!!

    Be careful with the tenacity. While it is a nice product you must read the lable very carefully. It states Tenacity will not control crabgrass once it hits the fourth,thats right 4th tiller stage.
    In NJ you have been there for quite awhile!!

    I know what it says but this is what it is doing.This is one app a week after.
    I applied the second app today. The second weed pic below tenacity has no effect on.
