    I try to stay away from winter rye. By this time of year hoping customer is ready for a break from me and I know that I am ready for some time off. Unfortunately could not talk one of my best customers out of it. I am in the Panhandle of Florida and would appreciate any suggestions on the preparation, type, amount and application.

    Rhett , we are in the panhandle as well and try to use rye as little as possible. Out of 170 accounts we only put rye on 6 this year. In the past we have had poor results in the spring. This year we spread it very thin, just enough to give the lawn some color.
