    Lesco (JDL) has it for around $500 per gallon. Don't feel too bad about the crabgrass,...we did do a pre-emergent, and are now having a bunch of beakout. Rainy seasons especially contribute to this. Even when you DO put down a cg control,...you have to inform the customer that you are only going to get a 90% control, anyway...This is according to the label. this way,...they KNOW that you can not do anything over what the products expectations are. If you ave to go back and do further crabgrass control,..then that is extra...The pre-emergent did exactly what it was supposed to do ... - for the 90 days that it was supposed to do it.

    ditch the acclaim. be cautious of the temps and drought conditions when using msma, use drive if they're monsterous plants. it works "decent" when applied with a spreader sticker to large crabgrass.

    but in my experience the vast majority of post emergent crabgrass controls suck.

    Why do you say ditch the Acclaim? This is the cream of the crop for cg control. 100% control...100% of the time has been our experience...and it goes a LONG way.

    Has anyone started to consider stocking up on MSMA with the reality of it not being available in the near future??
