Get Rid of Poa Annua
By Jim in Chelsea, AL on December 3, 2011
I live near Birmingham, AL. Before I discovered Hi-Yield Crabgrass Control, our yard was full of Poa Annua every spring. If you apply this product between Christmas and mid-January, 99% of the Poa Annua will not come up. The crab grass control is a bonus.

Preventing Annual Bluegrass / Poa Annua
By Jim in Chelsea, AL on November 29, 2012
I had a real problem with Poa Annua in the lawn of my new house. We pulled the Poa Annua up by the trash bag fulls the first spring. I asked at the local nursery about something to kill it. They told me about Hy Yield Crabgrass Control used as a pre-emergent. I put it down between Christmas and New Years every year and the Poa Annua is very minimal. I still pull a few survivors, but 99% never shows up.

HiYield Crabgrass control
By Bill in Hillsboro, Ohio on April 26, 2013
Prompt shipping, well packed. Product flows wonderfully in spreader (towed John Deere spreader). Easy to calculate rate and application. Too early in season to evaluate results (pre-emergence). Reasonable cost w/ shipping considering cost of travel and time saved.

A Product That Works
By Jim in Chelsea, AL on January 7, 2015
I have been using Hi-Yield Crabgrass Weed Control for several years and it is a great pre-emergent. I had a yard full of poa anna after we built our house. A local nursery suggested the product and it works as advertised. Just be sure you put it out early enough to have it down before germination. Mid-December in middle Alabama seems to work fine. The date snuck up on me this year, but a quick order to DoMyOwnPestControl resulted in a delivery in just 3 days. These folks have never failed me. Good products, good prices, good service. I also had a grub problem until I discovered their Merit product. No more grub problem.
Pleased so far
By Jim in Bartlesville on March 15, 2015
Arrived a couple days after ordered. I applied in early March. Hope it wasn't to late. We had a couple 70 degree days early this year. We'll see in a few weeks how it works.

My permanent lawn is basically non existent however I planted annual rye for winter cover. I want to plant Bahia seed for the 2014 summer. I removed carpet grass just before sowing the winter rye. I am concerned that there is carpet grass seed in the soil. I live about 50 miles north of Tampa Florida. Can you advise of the time frame I should use for application the sowing the seed?

Your local cooperative extension office would be able to advise you on the best time. Since this product is a pre-emergent, you have to wait at least 3 to 4 months before re-seeding your lawn after application.

can you apply Hi-Yield Crabgrass Weed Control and Ferti-Lome For All Seasons Lawn Food Plus Crabgrass and Weed Preventer together in a centipede lawn?

John from Chesapeake, Va asked:
QUsing this in combination with 2 4-D
Can I use this with 2 4-D to for my pre-emergence?
Herbicide product labels recommend applying products only to healthy lawns, depending on your type of lawn, you may want be careful. For example, St Augustine grass is a sensitive grass and you probably would not want to overapply chemicals to it - expecially if it is not healthy. You should be wary of mixing herbicides and over applying chemicals to lawn all at once because it can burn your lawn or do other damage. You may want to contact your local cooperatioce extension office for recommendations on lawns in your area and climate.
