    doing a bid on a bermuda soccerfield that is overseeded with perinnial rye in sept and sprayed out in late may. We apply pre here in 1st of March. Will ronstar damage the rye? Any other option?

    If someone has a application program already in place I would love to trade. I have a basic program outlined but am always open to suggestions. I'm in Eastern NC.

    the rye will burn off in May anyway. I do athletic fields in Raleigh and I haven't had to spray the rye out. Other people spray,I fertilize. 32-3-8 will juice the bermuda and the rye will die off from the heat. I overseed every fall anyway with a high grade athletic rye(eagle select from Lesco). How much are you going to charge for mowing and what are you cutting the grass with?

    Ronstar will not damage established rye. It will affect new growth and/or seeds. We spray ronstar on the golfcourse every march and great results.
