Barn
Guy 7 miles west of me grabbed the wrong jug last year and used roundup. Excellent control of all grasses and broadleaves. No resistance at all in his yard!


Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

Cripes! You are joking..right?
I hope you don`t have young kids playing on your lawn, absorbing the damp dirt/chemical through the soles of their feet and putting muddy fingers in their mouths!
I prefer my lawn au naturel..chemical free!

I really hope that the people of Winnipeg remember all this when it comes to election time.[/QUOTE]
They always say its the city people that support the ban...what I do know is that I live on the edge of the city and am surrounded by acerages and probably 95% or more do nothing to control the little yellow flowers. Also I will put in a vote for Par 3....last summer my cousin from southern Ontario (where they also have cosmetic chemical bans) came to visit. I took him to the chem dealer so he could take home a jug of Par3 and a jug of Transorb!

Well maybe this AND the PST hike will do it!

Best time to spray for dandelions is in early October, spraying now will set them back but not likely to solve the problem long-term.

That makes total sense. I wait until October to spray Quack grass for the same reason, waiting until it is putting nutrients into the roots for winter. I'll try that this October and see how it goes.

Par 3, and Premium 3 Way, both work well with 2 applications. Apply once during the spring to stop the flowering and seed set. Second application in early fall to allow the chemical to be absorbed into the roots and cure the problem for good.

A good rule spray once at first site of those pretty yellow flowers and again by the September 1st. This gives the dandelions lots of time to work the chemical deep into the roots. Then you have to look forward to a couple of years of seed in the lawn to deal with.

Living the dream,......one bushel at a time.

As a side note, it is also now illegal to clean out your ditches, drain potholes, etc. Gotta save Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg you know. NDP tried to save the lakes first by banning hog barn construction to the point that Maple Leaf in Brandon is now reducing shifts due to lack of hogs. That didn't save the lakes, so now they are banning all ditching activities. Apparently they don't realize that ag run-off is only around 10% of the phos load in the lakes (less than the city of winnipeg dumps in) and that over 50% of the P comes from outside of Manitoba on the Red River, Souris River, Qu'Appelle River and Assiniboine River.

Heard this winter that conventional til has higher N runoff and lower P runoff whereas zero til has lower N runoff and higher P runoff. Any bets on how long until the NDP passes a law making zero til illegal??

Seriously, that's the kind of mentality our speNDP government has!!!

I use Estaprop in June and again in September or early October. Last fall I used some Express sg instead.
I don't want my kids running around on it for a few days so If I know we're going away for a few days I will do it right before we leave.
Last year I also gave it a shot of 28-0-0. I cut it 3:1 with water in my atv sprayer. I did this in late June during a light shower.
