Okay the investment in terms of the package you need to buy is preposterous. You apply 0.7ML per gallon and have to buy 8 oz or 237ml.. which means you need to buy enough to make 338 gallons which treats 338,000 sq feet. For $500. But if you need to get rid of bermudagrass in fescue like my silly HOA demands, and can get past this investment challenge, the outcome is great.
I have to admit for the first 4 days I was convinced I made a huge mistake. Then it started visibly working. Now after 2 weeks the bermudagrass is turning white and the grass is green and fine. Wow
I have wasted way too much time in the past with ineffective solutions like fusilade & tenacity, finding just the right day, applying over and over etc. Triclopyr worked a little but is a bermudagrass discourager, not killer. I tried roundup one year but the bermudagrass just came back anyways. The roundup wasn’t that expensive but the grass seed was.
My pylex package came with a ml syringe (no needle) that is great for dispensing the very small amount (thanks). You need to buy the MSO. What I didn’t catch is that the pylex secondary label tells you to use triclopyr in addition to the mso- i took that as a very strong recommendation. So plan ahead with your domyown order. I would also recommend a dye if you are spraying enough.
The label recommends 2 or 3 applications finishing 3 weeks before seeding time, which means I can apply in the summer. Perfect. Cause that’s when bermudagrass takes over. I can’t tell you how next year will be but at least this is real progress.
Crazy expensive- yup. Only thing that works-check. Possible solution or at least significant gain for the first time in years in my struggle against bermudagrass in fescue- bingo. Highly recommended. All we need to do is get it in containers 1/8 the size
