Pre-ems on chopped straw

Or wait and go peri-em with the view of hitting the grass weeds themselves and leaving a residual layer on what little soil is visible?

If there's a really thick cover of straw I don't think much will emerge through it anyway, so the residual is really for those areas with less cover.
IMHO
