    Actually TG management's response to customer's concerns about applications being made in the rain would be; "Rain? It's the best thing for it! The product needs to be watered in anyway."

    I have seen TG's standard RAIN comments on their Service receipts.
    Here is a sampling:
    "Today's rain will provide beneficial moisture to the application and will activate today's treatment."

    "Rain later will not reduce the effectiveness of today's application."

    "Today's rain will activate the application."

    We all have to dance around showers when doing apps. Heavy or constant rain will shut me down because I want all the weeds to die after the app. I can get excellent weed control on warm days with a light drizzle or a shower an hour after the app on warm, humid days.

    I would have to agree; Light rain, moderate showers, would most likely benefit the lawn application.
    I was making reference to the screen-shot of a Radar showing heavy rain on Post #74.
    As TG on the other hand, would do applications in heavy downpours.
    To that end, I've witnessed TG out spraying in 20+ mph winds!

    In order to hit their monthly bottom Line, TG almost never calls off a day's work because of bad weather.
