Texas Weed or any other helpful citizens, is there still time to put out pre-emergent here in north texas or is it to late?

Bit late for what has germinated already, but it will do some good for what has not.

I put some down on August 16th and again yesterday. I hope the aplication yesterday wasn't a waste of money. I had henbit last winter and bad poa in the spring.

Not it was not a waste of money, kind of depends on what type, but the secret to successful pre-emergence use is succession applications spread 8 to 10 weeks apart.

The August 16th dose was dimension. I am not sure what the stuff was on Saturday. It came in a lesco bag and I just bought it at home depot. It gave different setter spreadings depending on how much you wanted to put out and I went with the maximum setting.

No it had a lot of brown in it. This is what I used.

LESCO .86% Pre-m With 0-0-7 Fertilizer

Model # 088581
Store SKU # 118243

Looking it up online now I see the dimension printed on the bag plain as day. I wish that some day I could find some of that Amaze but I have never found any.
