    Was talking with some guys the other day about their favorite pre and post emergents used on crabgrass, broadleaf, sedges.....etc. Drive, Momentum, 3-way, speedzone, trimec all came up. Just curious what you guys loved to use to make your clients lawns the most weed free.

    I have had excellent success with Three Way spiked with Quicksilver!
    Very good and very quick kill!

    On the SC turf--Atrazine 4L is both the pre-emergent and post emergent for most broadleafs. Not much choice on the St. Augustine and centipede as post-herbicide. There're sever speciality chems for Sedges, Dollarweed and noxious weeds that we use but not in a broad spectrum. Dimension as a pre-em and Trimec Post-em on the Tn properties does a good job. Most of the turf in TN is fescue.

    Early pre..barricade can be applied almost as early as dormancy..and f'n works! Late I switch over to dimension. Post...always have used trimec.

    This year I ran Calvalcade followed up with dimension-so far so good! Started with Calvalcade late March throguh early May, then Dimension throguh early June. I use Q4 with better results than Drive for post emerge crabgrass control. 1.1 oz. of the three way product of your choice for weed control with 1 1/2 qt. Lesco Sticker per 100 gal. for very little call backs. No fancy Speedzones or Momentum's here. Have been getting browning of nutsedge with Q4, but better results with sedgehammer
