Now's the tirne to control grassy and broadleaf weeds Now is the best time to apply pre-emergent herbi- cides fi)r controlling annual grassy and broadleaf weeds in lawns and landscapes. Many individuals wait too late to apply their pre-emer- gent herbicides and then wonder why they still have problems with winter weeds in the lawn. Once these annual weeds germinate and start to grow, most of the pre-emergem her- bicides will have no affect on the weed. Application of a pre-emergent herbicide is the most eft ective method to con- trol the winter annual grassy weeds. If winter annual grassy weeds are allowed to become established in the lawn, there isn't a real good post-emergent control. While post-emergent herbi- cides such as Roundup and Finale can be used to control winter grassy weeds, these products should only be used Rick Hirsr Agriview once the warm season turf, grasses are completely dor- mant. In many areas of Texas, these grasses do not go com- pletely dormant and applying products such as Roundup and/or Finale can cause seri- ous injury to the lawn. When purchasing a pre- emergent herbicide, read the label very carefully to make sure the herbicide is labeled for the type of turfgrass to be treated. Also, read the label to determine how much herbi- cide is needed to treat the lawn. Over-applying the her- bicide can injure turf'grass plants.
