Weed B Gone And Fertilizer

Filed Under: Weeds, Lawn Grasses, Weeds and Invasive Plants · Keywords: Hi, Grass, Crabgrass, Lawn, Food, My, Bermuda, Question, Other, Up, Weeds, August · 598 Views
probably the cart before the horse thing, but I spread Sta-Green Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food on my dormant Bermuda yard last week which was followed by some crazy warm weather in the 70's and nearly F1 tornado winds which followed with purple blooming clover throughout my yard. My question, can I or when can I spray the clover and other popping up scattered weeds with Weed B Gone? Must I wait to do so and if so, how long? Just for note, I was wamills@sbmu.net before retiring in August of last year. Again, thanks so much for all of your help over the last years.

Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi William-The Sta-Green Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food is fine used in the early spring. It not only controls the Crabgrass but some other weeds also. It is a pre-emergent herbicide that targets certain weeds without harming specific types of grasses such as your Bermuda. I don't believe it targets the clover especially now that it has germinated and grown as fast as it has. The Weed B Gon is a selective post emergent herbicide that kills some existing weeds when sprayed on without harming specific grasses. The herbicide is taken in by the leaves and moves down through the plant killing them at the roots. The Sta-Green will most likely continue to kill some weeds that have not yet germinated but using the Weed B Gon should be fine to use on the clover now. I believe clovers are noted on the Weed B Gon label as a weed it will kill. The label also if I'm not mistaken notes the product can be use on Bermuda grass without harming it. Always read the labels to see what weeds can be controlled or killed and the grasses these products can be used on with harming them also. I can't see why you can't use the Weed B Gon now as one product is a pre-emergent weed killer and the other a post emergent weed killer. You actually are not doubling up on the amount of herbicide in the soil. I normally in the spring use pre-emergent weed killers around the garden then also post emergent (on contact) weed killers to take out many other weeds that have come up earlier than expected.

Please ask if you have any other questions.
