Broadleaf weeds are one of the leading sources of customer complaints. This is particularly true in the spring. Dandelions always seem to poke their yellow heads out of the ground at the most inopportune time. Here are a few things you should consider when planning broadleaf weed control.
Granular VS Spray
Most broadleaf herbicides are absorbed more by foliage than by roots. For this reason the most efficient way to get these materials into the weeds is with a foliar spray application. There are a number of great products on the market and they all provide excellent cost effective control when used correctly. While you may get better control with liquids there are a few drawbacks. Proper mixing is essential to get good results and avoid damaged turf. It is also very important to have the appropriate safety gear on hand and use it properly when handling concentrates. Make sure that your spray equipment is properly maintained and calibrated. Fix any leaks as these can result in turf damage or spills. Finally, be very careful on windy days. Sprays are much more likely to end up off target when itís windy.
Granular applications can also be very effective when done properly. Some materials like ProScape Confront provide excellent control even when applied to dry weeds. However, for best results most granular products benefit from being applied when there is some dew or moisture on the foliage. This helps the granule stick and transfers more herbicide to the leaf surface. Choosing a granule with a small light particle can also help improve control. The fertilizers in most granular products not only save labor, they will also increase turf vigor and make the turf more competitive. If you are using spray applications and the turf is undernourished a fertilizer application is highly recommended. Granular applications are easier to control on windy days and require less sophisticated equipment.
When to Apply
Broadleaf postemergent herbicides are growth regulators that mimic hormones in the plant. To work they must be absorbed and moved to the site of activity, usually a growing point in the root or leaf. For this reason the best time to apply these materials is when the weeds are actively growing. The more active the growth the better these materials will work. Because larger weeds generally tolerate more herbicide than small ones it is also best to try to control weeds before they become fully-grown. Healthy turf is very tolerant of broadleaf herbicides so there is a considerable safety margin. However, stress factors such as drought or and heat can predispose turf to damage. Donít apply under drought conditions or when temperatures exceed about 80F. In general newly seeded areas should be mowed two to three times before you apply a broadleaf herbicide.
