Best rule of thumb is mother nature. When Forsythias are just about to bloom its time for pre-emergent.

I crowd the end of March as close as I can, If I am using Gramaxone with another premerge I do not worry at all, if using Roundup with another premerge I will watch it a little closer, I have sprayed as late as April 15 and all it did was delay mowing for 2-3 weeks which I really like

Gramaxone is a contact only killer and vegitation has to be green
Roundup can slightly prune bermuda grass but I usually do not worry about a slight pruning

Gramaxone 40 ounces per acre
princept 24 ounces per acre
Valor 1.5 ounces per acre

all mixed together with 1 quart of crop oil per 100 gallons mixture

my rate of spray is 10 gallons of mixed chemicals per acre

as far as I know none of the chemicals that I listed were "restricted" so they should be available across the counter.

I do have my restricted license to purchase the insecticides.

getting the license is no problem if you take the test in Haywood County, they leave a copy of the "answers" on the table and the instructor walks out of the room, the state is more interested in the "money" you pay for the license
