    Has anyone sprayed Tenacity on Fescue over 85 degrees? If so, what was the results and what rate did you use?

    Fine or Tall Fescue? IME with Tenacity you get a little bleaching with all grass but the bent and nimblewill are WAY more effected. I spot sprayed 90+ temps and only the bent had severe damage, some tip bleaching on rye, blue, and fine fescue. (however the fine fescue was growing in a shady area)

    Keep your rate at the 5oz/Acre rate and make sure and use at least .75 gallons of water as your carrier. If irrigation is available water it in after the spray.

    Thanks for the info just started using it some this spring on tall fescue. Was impressed with it this spring (for pre and post control). I used the 5oz rate on a couple yards and they are alot cleaner now then the fescue yards I used prodomimine (spelling?)
