yeah that's what I've been using, and all it does to my crab grass is turn it purple at the stems. I've been using it with a sprayer for about three years and about the only thing I've seen is it slows it's growth. How many times are you applying it?

fall pre is for winter weeds only , crabgrass isn't in this application , Poa annual rescue grass and many broadleaf weeds are main targets with the fall ( put down by oct 1 for north Texas for best results ) . Spectacle is the best although very expensive prodiamine then pendamethalin for fall herbicides.
Late February application is for crabgrass , goose grass etc , ( summer annuals). Green up doesn't matter for pre emergence, dimension herbicide works best if late in applying as it controls early emergence of crabgrass . I use prodiamine in mid February . Hope this helps.

I need to go get some fertilizer and will be watering it for the next couple of days to help it green up (hopefully). :shock:

My neighbors think im crazy because it was dark green on top but the length was driving me insane!

Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since scalping and every 3 days I have been cutting it still on #1. It is amazing just in 3 days how much growth I get, but its finally greening up!

I just put down the 2 treatment. The first took care of roughly half of it. I guess I'll keep applying till it's gone. It unfortunately does nothing for Dallisgrass though.

This gives me hope for my back yard. We went to Galveston for a few days, when we returned, the bermuda that was growing so well in my back yard looked like a damn cut hay field. I immediately started watering it and got some green back. Now it is daily watering to try and bring it back :/
