    5oz per gallon means absolutely nothing to me. How much turf are you covering with 5oz per gallon?

    what are you talking about come back? I was explaining no less than 500Sq ft no more than 1000sq ft. Any way I do not have time for this kindergarten he said, she said bull crap.

    I think he was referring to new Bermuda getting in via the neighbors or natural means.

    I was suggesting your fescue coming back.in your lawn could be neighbors overspeeding and birds carrying it in..

    I use glysophosphate at 2oz per 1000 sq ft. Meaning if I mix 2oz in a gallon of water that gallon sprays 1000 sqft of turf area..

    I'm not sure why your starting to get what seems like an attitude, but it won't get you far here..

    Wow.

    1-1.5 quarts per acre will kill most weeds in dormant Bermuda using gly.

    If you are applying 5 oz of gly per 1000 then you are wasting a lot. But if it works it works an go ahead.

    Anything sprayed in cold weather will take week to work no matter how hot it is
