    Several CT guys started applying Dimension on March 12 which is insane since crabgrass won't emerge until 8-9 weeks later in which case the herbicide will be gone. Barricade might make sense that early - I have one account that has been applying prodiamine for 2 weeks now.

    Pendi & Dimension applied this early will need a second app in 6-7 weeks to stay the season.

    There was ice in the ground again this past Friday & again this morning so we're sure not late regardless what some applicators may be doing. Chances are they're staring at an 8 week round & will repeat the Pendi on the first half of R2.

    After a 7.5" rain event anyone who thought they were done was mistaken.
