    Having a Msma application on bermuda grass at one of our properties,
    for dallas grass and crabgrass. Scheduled application is Thursday morning, will it be more effective if I mow Wed. afternoon. If I do not mow Wed. I will have to mow it Thursday afternoon in order to stay on schedule. Thanks for the replies.

    Do not mow night before and wait a couple of days after application to mow. You will have to repeat the application of msma probaly three times for dallas grass at 7 to 10 day intervals. Good luck dallas grass control is difficult but the key is reapeat applications at proper intervals.

    I've had fair to good results controlling dallas and bahagrass in bermuda cutting first and waiting a couple or three days for the dallas/bahagrass to grow for better chemical exposure. As Brizine said, repeat applications is the key.

    I agree, do not mow before and wait a couple of days after before mowing.
