  2. tnt, how about application dates, lbs applied /m and % ai in bag.
    What rate of ai/acre of dimension is recommended in Iowa?

    Again fellow posters, not enough info to properly answer question. Would think anybody who has a pesticide license would realize this!!!

    You are running too much Scu for your final app
  4. Bkelly56, when do you think his last app is? For all we know it could be 7/1/03!!!!!!!!!
    What rates of n are we assuming he is applying?

    TimTurf, you seem to want to assume that TnT is a complete knucklehead.

    Can't we assume the vendors he has talked to is steering him in the right direction as far as timing and #N/M ??

    TnT, I'd go with the Lesco plan, But since you will be spot spraying with Trimec, perhaps use what they recommend for step 3 during rnd 2 as well as 3.

    Theres my 2 cents.
  6. Giving advice without all the necessary info is stupid!!
    After reading some of the post, I do wonder how much knowledge some people have!!

    Just trying to give TnT some good advice. I think too many people on this forum assume too much!!

    I'll heip you TnT if you pm me with requested info. Tim
