Hi guys,
Im a new member and im trying to absorb all that I can from this great site.
Im a homeowner,not in the business.I live in Fort Worth,TX and have bermuda grass. I have a major dallisgrass problem.about 50-60% of my "lawn" is dallisgrass.I've read that MSMA will help so I bought some and applied it.My question is do I water my lawn? How long should I wait? How long til the 2nd application?
I ask this cause the instruction label was in bad shape and i couldnt read it.
Will this MSMA alone do the trick?
Thanks,

LAWN AND ORNAMENTAL TURF
Target® 6.6 is useful for control of dallisgrass, sandbur,
bahiagrass, nutsedge, barnyardgrass, chickweed and wood
sorrel with little or no injury to good lawn grasses. On new
lawns, do not treat until after three mowings. Good grasses
may be temporarily discolored. Zoysia, bluegrass, and
bermuda are quite tolerant. Do not use on St. Augustine
or centipede. Mow lawns to 1 to 11/2 inches high before
treatment. Mix 1 fluid ounce (2 tablespoons) of Target® 6.6
and 1/2 fluid ounce (1 tablespoon) of a suitable surfactant
in 1 to 2.5 gallons of water and apply to an area of 1,000
square feet. Spray thoroughly to wet all undesirable plants.
Repeat applications, 10 to 14 days apart, may be needed
for good control. Do not apply with hose-end applicators

Hurry up and use your MSMA.

There are many forces right now in the commercial chemical biz trying to come up with a viable and effective replacement for MSMA in turf.

The EPA is now, more than ever, up-in-arms about the arsenic content of this chemical, and its long-term ramifications to the soil, our drinking water, and the environment as a whole.

Whatever chemical company comes up with a product with a comparable label to MSMA first, and survives field trials in heavy-pressure Southern climes, will certainly OWN a name in lawn care in the future as big as "Roundup".
