    What are your thoughts on spraying either a dewey lawn or one that was recently irrigated or rained on? In the fall there is a lot of dew on the lawns which can last a good portion of the early morning. The application that I would be applying would consist of herbicide (probably speed zone) and fertilizer.

    That shouldn't be a problem. Unless there is enough water to move off the leaf blade that product isn't going anywhere. And what you spray out isn't going to add that water.

    Ready1,
    You didn't mention the use of adjuvants with your mixture of Speedzone and liquid fert.
    Are you using fert as a means of nutrient feeding or are you using it to aid in the uptake of the herbicide?
    If wet conditions is a problem then I would surmise you can use a adjuvant for better leaf surface coverage.

    I am using the fertilizer to feed the turf. How much adjuvant should be used in a tank mix?
