    I'd wager everyone in here has used a combo product at one time or another. Most of them are good products but if extreme conditions exist in a certian growing season then you can expect some failure. Dimension w/fert is a good example for this year. Too much drought reduced it's effectiveness and crabgrass went wild in this market. It's not because Dimension is a bad product but rather that when used in conjuction with a fertilizer, you are not going to cover 100% of a given surface area with the product. Therfore, you will get breakthrough and need to address that issue based upon how your contracts are worded.
