    When putting Tenacity down you don't have to drench everything right? Does the normal wet the leaves apply? I'm not looking for a whole lot of Pre-Emergence control. Trying to minimize the white lawn look.

    Zoysia and Bermuda are susceptible as well.

    Cool season turf - bluegrass, TTTF, ryegrass tolerate rates a little above 5 oz/ per acre. Fine fescue can be affected if it takes up more than 15% of the stand.

    It needs to be put down with a lot of water. Dont remember the exact amount but it says on the label. If you minimize the white lawn you will minimize the results. It grows out dont worry. Its just the nature of the beast.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm applying it to tall fescue.

    Apply 5ml per two gallons. I apply 1 gallon per 1,000sq. Resluts will not appear for 14-25 days. I mix a 3-way in for customer visual of weed knockdown while tenacity is working. So 2.5ml per 1,000sq and I get good coverage. Whitening of weeds will still occur, turf will be have spots that are white, but whole turf "should not turn white"

    5-8oz per acre in at least 30 gallons of water is what the label says
