Well, here it is, the most viewed blog post of 2016 is:

#1 -A Great Mixture to Keep Weeds Out of Infields and Tracks. 

Thanks again for a great 2016.  Looking forward to 2017!  Cheers!

With summer now upon us, many high school playing surfaces are winding down from spring play, now crabgrass, goosegrass, and other unwanted growth will appear.
 


How do you control this issue?  See below:

A simple mixture of Glyphosate in a 2% solution and SureGuard at 3 teaspoons per 1000 sq ft. So, in a 3 gallon spray hand can, 7.68 ounces of Glyphosate and 9 teaspoons of SureGuard. The tank will cover 3,000 sq ft. How well does it work? The photos below are from the warning track at Brebeuf High School. The track was sprayed in March.




Note the weeds along the track edge. This is due to the application. As many of you know, Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide, meaning it will kill anything it touches. So, be careful along all grass edges. Finally, to get better control, try not the work the infield/track up as this will break the Sureguard barrier.

  1. Couple questions. Can this be used during playing the playing season? If it can and your are working the fields how often should you reapply?
    I noticed Tuesday yesterday that we already have grass sprouting on our infields.
