    Hey guys I am nedding some help on a current bid. The problem is I sub out all fertilizer and herbicide work, and in this bid a groupis asking for only two applications. My question is which two applications would you make if only allowed two for the whole year??? Just needing to know before I call around to subs. Thanks!

    I would go with the spring and fall apps. only if that's all they want. These would be the 2 most effective in my opinion.

    I agree with Homer one spring w/pre-emergent and one fall app. Hopefully your pH isn't far off. Otherwise you would need a lime app. as well.
