    I am inquiring because with the weird winter we have had with little to no snow should i be considering a split application rather than just the one application in early/mid march to rid of possible early weed growth..Also what products are being used in this area or pre emergents if i do a split application? Thank you...

    If you were to do a split application when youÂ’d you put down the first application :waving:

    Late fall would be throwing your money way
    With our temps going down by that time up here in New York

    Just keep track of the soil temps. They may warm up quicker thus needing to jump on pre m alittle early but then you need the split like in your 2 or 3 app to carry you into the fall.

    I am in St. Louis and doing a split application of dimension starting in early March for the first and early May for the second. Go to Greencastonline.com and it will give you ground temps., insect and disease problems as they move into your area. It also shows maps of crabgrass and other pests as they move north with the temps. Its free to sign up and very helpful.
