Really worried about new stand of Bermuda
Posted 29 June 2012 - 06:09 AM
I have sprouts coming up in places probally average of 1 sprout per 3 sq. ft.I have a ton of questions
Will sprouts die if in don't get rain soon?
Clippings underground clippings are brown now instead of green.
How long will the clippings live underground without rain?
I have weeds coming on of course.Nut grass,real bad Trumpet Creepers,unknown type of Spurge that i had in prior years in this field.
I have access to some MSMA How many of these weeds listed will MSMA kill and how soon could i use it on the young sprouts?

I green top sprigged a small field of Russell labor day 2011, only received 7in of rain on it until May 27 2012, tomorrow I will mow it for hay. This is on DEEP SAND hills. The last 31 days I have received over 3 feet of rain, YES 37 1/4 inches, and I am NOT wet. I think you will be ok.
As far as the MSMA, leave that to the sod farms ! Bermuda grass can withstand 2,4,d at any age up to 20 - 32 oz per acre, the older the more it can stand. You might want to check out , milestone, cleanwave & cimmaron plus also.
Check out : edis.ifas.ufl.edu/wg006 : title is Weed management in Pastures and Rangeland - 2012. It is a real good guide. Like any other publication, it is only a guide, may NOT work everywhere every time. I like it, as it has some real good information in it, it is not the best but is good.
