I seeded common Bermuda in Central Arkansas 3 weeks this Monday. This was a new lawn. I have kept it watered well and all the seeds have germinated and have begun to grow. Most of the seedings are 1 bladed and less than 1 inch tall.

Recent Rains have really made the wild grasses spring to life. I am not sure what species it is…I call it Dallisgrass. The blades of this grass are about 1/4-1/2 in wide and the grass is now 2 inches tall.

My question is: When can I spray MSMA or a broadleaf herbacide on my newly planted bermuda seedings without fear of killing them?

Thanks in advanceJester

I too seeded a new yard about 3 weeks ago and I was needing to know the same. The crabgrass needs to go and I can’t keep it pulled up as fast as it grows.

Also another question on the same topic. How long does it take for seedlings to mature and start making runners?

Dont put any msma or any kind of weed control on it for a year, just gonna have to deal w/weeds by hand for the time being. I seeded also and this was told to me by a pro.
