Answer/Response:The use of dye for grass is still in the experimental stage. The dye consists of a combination of Malachite Green, Auramine O and Crystal Violet. The separate ingredients are obtainable from several chemical manufacturers. This dye is apparently perfectly harmless to grass and is not poisonous to man or to animals. Ordinarily one-half ounce dissolved in from two and one-half to 5 gallons of water will be found to give a good coverage when sprayed over 1,00 square feet of turf. The dye comes off on balls when it is wet; therefore, it should be applied at a time when it will dry fairly rapidly.
