How To

Application time for Pre-emergents

Pre-emergents  will not control weeds that have germinated prior to application. So you need to apply a pre-emergent 
several weeks before germination. If they are applied too soon before germination, the herbicide may lose its effectiveness. 
For the fall a good rule of thumb is to apply a pre-emergent the third week of August to mid-September.
Exact dates are hard because it has to do with location and the weather temperature at the time.

Can I use the granular Prodiamine with a broadcast spreader before a rain?
Linda B on Feb 10, 2018

Bob W on Dec 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That’s a great question . I was assigned a contact by the company named Camille. She is out of One of their Texas Stores. . I emailed her what I was using and she calculated what I needed to add per gallon. It wasn’t very much and worked like a charm. I wish I still had that email with the calculation per gallon.
Is this effective for Dallisgrass? If not what is best pre emergent for Dallisgrass? I have 1 acre bermuda grass lawn in Texas.
Sean on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work for Dallisgrass if you can apply at the correct time. Postemergent The postemergent herbicides MSMA or CMA (such as Weed-Hoe or Weed-B-Gon Crabgrass Killer for Lawns) can be used by home gardeners to control clumps of dallisgrass growing in lawns. These herbicides are relatively selective and must be applied two to three times at 3-week intervals in the summer. The turfgrass and dallisgrass should be in good growing condition before application. Also, it is best if the turf is left unmowed for 2 weeks before the first application to create the maximum amount of leaf area for coverage by the herbicide spray. Withhold irrigation for 24 hours after application. Don�t apply these herbicides during extremely hot weather and check the label for rate adjustments during warm weather to minimize the risk of injuring the turfgrass. There are some restrictions on turfgrass types where these products can be used, such as on St. Augustinegrass.

Foramsulfuron (Revolver) is a new postemergent herbicide for control of cool-season grass weeds and turf species in warm season lawns. It can only be used in bermudagrass and zoysiagrass lawns and has good weed control activity on dallisgrass, but be aware that it is harmful to most cool season turfgrasses. This product is only available to professional applicators at this time, but may be used on residential lawns.

BEST ANSWER: The Prodiamine 65 WDG will not kill the current Bluegrass but it will prevent new growth.
Can this be used in grass pastures that aren't being grazed but that are strictly cut and baked for hay fields to feed cattle. A spring application with round up pro and LV-6 would seemingly leave a clean field with a residual through growing season.
Okie Spray guy on Feb 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No Prodiamine cannot be used on grazed pastures, but does not list pasture grass for hay on the label. It appears Grazon has a pre-emergent and could be used, but it does require a license.
