plant bermuda seed or wait till next year

Postby ugabulldog » Wed Jun 13, 2018 5:09 pm

Two weeks ago I sprayed 2,4-d but sprayed too weak (trying not to kill white clover I planted last year). I have a 50lb bag of coated hulled common bermudagrass I was going to broadcast seed in a week but there are a lot of weeds still in pasture. If I spray again and wait a few weeks to plant seed it will be mid Summer. Not sure if I should wait and seed next year after I do a better job of spraying weeds and how much germination rate would go down. Or just go head as planned. Also, just had chic litter spread on pasture.

i don’t see how you plan on spraying and having clover. Anything I spray for weeds will smoke clover

24DB or Butyrac will kill all broadleaf, but not clover.
