Ok, so I have tttf in the southern part of the transition zone. So I had some dallisgrass invading the lawn last season, but overseeded and aerated last fall and have prepared the turf the best I could for the brutal summer. Temps are already in the 90s regularly down here. I didn't realize how much dallisgrass I had in the lawn until recently because the seed heads are only now starting to pop up. Every time I see one I do my best to pull the whole bunch out by the roots. I have some msma, but I am trying to figure out the best time to treat the Dallisgrass. I know the fescue is going to be fighting for its life shortly so I am afraid if I apply a herbicide like msma now, I may lose alot of my turf. I also know if I kill the dallisgrass the fescue will not fill the bare areas in, and I will probably promote more weed growth. Looking for any opinions on best way to address this.
