    I started monitoring soil temps to time my spring pre emergent application and was wondering
    Which is the correct way to monitor soil temps? Do you go by daily low, high or an average?

    Check this out! soil temp. map

    A soil thermometer works well too. Watch for triggers like redbuds starting to bloom or forsythias blooming. Forsythias usually are a good guide to the 55 degree mark.
