Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of pre-emergence turf maintenance products, stating that the "choice for pre-emergence weed control depends on factors such as efficacy, cost, availability and application equipment...a pre-emergence herbicide [should be selected] for its performance based on the environmental effects of the previous season, particularly weather conditions." States that "procedures for applying pre-emergence herbicides are fairly simple and are explicitly described on the pesticide label...When a pre-emergence herbicide is applied to the turf and properly watered in, the chemical moves down through the turf where it comes in contact with the soil...The success of the application depends on applying the chemical prior to germination." Also discusses the possible need of water after application and mentions that "some weeds are more easily controlled if the pre-emergence is applied at the approprate soil temperature." Explains that "when pre-emergence application results are less than desired, an application of a post-emergence herbicide may be necessary."
