Get ahead of the crabgrass battle in your lawn this spring. Here is the know-how from Hummert’s own Dan Bartles in Topeka: The typical window to apply Dyna Green Crabgrass Preventor is Mid-March to Mid-April. Since this year is unseasonably warm, the window this year should be March 1 until the middle part of April. Dyna Green uses the commercial rate of Dimension to provide you with maximum protection against crabgrass in your yard. One added feature of Dyna Green Crabgrass control with Dimension is that it has post germination control of crabgrass up to the 2-3 leaf stage. So, if you don't get it down before crabgrass germinates, you can still get some control with this product!
Hummert’s High Tunnels are quality built and one of the strongest you will find in the business. Our High Tunnels work great for getting a jump-start on early crops like tomatoes and strawberries. No electricity needed and they are approved for the EQIP funding granted by the NRCS! Featuring many sizes and drop down curtains, these high tunnels come with all you need other than your framing lumber. Call your sales rep for a quote today!

The March birth flowers are really one in the same. The daffodil, or Narcissus, symbolizes new beginnings, rebirth, and the end of winter. The Jonquil, or Narcissus jonquilla, is an old world variety of daffodil. This variety is yellow, white, or a combination of both and so fragrant the oil from the flower is used as perfume. They symbolize sorrow and to convey sympathy.
