    We just tell customers, "It's prevented in the spring" (2008). This seems to work for us, and the customers understand. On new sod, we apply Dimension (with fert) as late as early August. Foxtail loves to grow in the "seams" of the sod.

    They should carry it. also Trimec Plus would work, it has MSMA and would also work for spraying other broad-leaf weeds.

    Q4 will do a great job on foxtail and crabgrass. Expensive, but worth it!
