    Meyer, wide blade, mowed at .5.

    Diquat at 32 oz/A.

    Couple weeks after treatment.

    Will it bounce back?

    It will. Zoysia is not killed by Reward. Not even if it is sprayed full green up. But it will look torched for about a month sprayed when green

    That’s good news... here’s the kicker. There was some round up in there too. Not sure how much, said it was lightened up for the zoysia.

    What's the rest of the story, someone treating like Bermuda?

    Yes that’s the story. I don’t know if lightning it up mean speeding up or what.
    Definately don’t look the best

    I'm guessing that guy got fired and you hired?

    No Glyphosate on "dormant" Zoysia. That will be the cause of Zoysia that is going to take a long time to green up. There is a reason why application of RoundUp to either green or even dormant Zoysia is not on the label. While it may not kill the Zoysia, the damage will last most of your growing season.

    Nah, my golf course days are over, at least working on one. Only lasted 2 years.

    We were coring the greens for this golf course.
    They sprayed fairways, approaches with “32 oz diquat and 32 oz gly” per acre. Seems that is too high a rate of reward to me with the gly, but I dunno.
    Made some zoysia approach’s look like that.
    Also shows nicely what your nozzle pattern does when the boom goes up on a hill.
