    We are in the middle of summer here. High Temps are almost always above 85.

    Most recommendations say not Fert on fescue at this time. I've thought about a light app....25-.5lb n... Of 50% sr xrt.

    I usually spot treat nut grass as an app but wondered if I could no some Quincept or 3-way at the low rate to target other weeds.

    Thoughts from you guy who care for fescue in the heat?

    I think any nitrogen in any form on fescue in eastern NC in June, July or August is a bad idea. That grass is semi-dormant and under stress, it doesn't need any N.

    My opinion is that you would be OK with the Quincept or 3-way. However, I am far away from your location.

    I have a very picky client with 2 acres of fescue, and now he wants me to rid it of bermuda that's encroaching. I'm really trying to convince him to hold off on any treatment until September.
