Andersons 0.48% Barricade Pre-Emergent Weed Control Herbicide for Lawns and Landscape Ornamentals on DG Pro prevents unwanted annual grassy and broadleaf weeds, including crabgrass, poa annua, goosegrass, and henbit. Prodiamine, the active ingredient in this pre-emergent herbicide, is proven to eliminate undesirable weeds without harming beneficial plants.
This weed and crabgrass preventer provides excellent residual control of broadleaf weeds because it inhibits the seed germination and the root development of weeds. It is ideal to use in lawns, field-grown and landscape ornamentals, turfgrasses, sod farms, wildflower plantings, non-crop areas around managed rights-of-way for transportation systems like pumping stations, parking areas, tank farms, and Christmas tree farms.
To maximize weed control, Andersons 0.48% Barricade is best applied in the early spring and fall before weed seeds germinate. It is recommended to activate with at least 0.5-inch of water within 14 days after the application. Available in 18-lb. and 50-lb. bags.

Do not apply more than 7.2 lbs/1000 sq. ft. per year.
Most effective weed control in turfgrasses will be obtained when this product is activated by at least 0.2 inch of rainfall or irrigation prior to weed seed germination and within 14 days following application.
When to Apply After Overseeding Turf
Do not apply to overseeded turf within 60 days after seeding or until after the second mowing. whichever is longer. Injury to desirable seedlings is likely if this product is applied before seedling secondary roots are in the second inch of soil, not thatch plus soil.
Use Precautions and Restrictions
The following precautions apply to the use of this product in turfgrasses and lawns:
Application of this product may thin emerged annual bluegrass and newly overseeded grasses.
Do not apply to overseeded turf within 60 days after seeding or until after the second mowing, whichever is longer.
Injury to desirable seedlings is likely if this product is applied before seedling secondary roots are in the second inch of soil, no thatch plus soil.
Do not cut (harvest) treated sod before 120 days after application. Do not apply to newly set sod until the following year.
Application of this product to turf stressed by drought, low fertility, or pest damage may result in turf injury.
Disturbing the herbicide barrier with cultural practices such as disking may result in reduced weed control.
Do not apply this product to putting greens or areas where dichondra, colonial bentgrass, velvet bentgrass, or annual bluegrass are desirable species.
Do not apply to golf course putting greens.
CONTAINER, FIELD GROWN, AND LANDSCAPE ORNAMENTALS
THIS PRODUCT MAY BE APPLIED FOR RESIDUAL PREEMERGENCE WEED CONTROL IN ORNAMENTALS (INCLUDING ESTABLISHED PERENNIAL AND WILDFLOWER PLANTINGS AND CHRISTMAS TREE FARMS).
Apply this product at 3.1 to 7.2 lbs./1000 sq. ft. (135 to 313 lbs./A) in fall and/or spring. Use higher rate of application for longer control periods. Sequential applications may be made so long as the total amount of product applied does not exceed the maximum annual application rate of 7.2 lb./1000 sq. ft. (313 lbs./acre).
Application Timing and Information
This product is a preemergence herbicide and will not control emerged weeds. Most effective weed control in ornamentals will be obtained when this product is activated by at least 0.5 inch of rainfall or irrigation or with shallow (1 to 2 inch) mechanical incorporation, prior to weed seed germination and within 14 days following application.
Best weed control is obtained when this product is applied to sol free of clods, weeds, and debris such as leaves and mulch. Prior to application of this product, control existing vegetation by hand weeding, cultivation or the use of an appropriate postemergence herbicide.
Apply this product to dry foliage only. Overhead irrigation or rainfall soon after application will wash granules off plant foliage and activate this product in the soil.
Established Container, Field Nursery Stock or Landscape Plants
Apply this product at any time to established container or field nursery stock. It may be applied as a broadcast or over the top application.
Newly Transplanted Container or Field Nursery Stock
This product may be applied to newly transplanted container or field nursery stock after the soil is allowed to settle and has been thoroughly watered. For cuttings, apply after the cuttings form roots and become established. Apply this product before budding/grafting or after the buds/grafts have taken. This is to avoid any inhibition of the tissue union.
Shadehouses and Uncovered Polyhouses
This product may be used in shade houses and uncovered poly houses, as well as outdoor locations. Keep the covered poly house open for at least 7 days and 2 irrigations that total a minimum of 0.5 inch of water after the application.

First time use. Applied late October for winter weed control in Central FL. Effectiveness will be determined in time. Product went down as planned with my spreader using 1/2 rate twice over. Although I am satisfied with this granular product, I will switch to a spray pre-emergent in the spring, which is less expensive per application. I would recommend this granular product for those who don’t use a sprayer.
I've been so impressed with DO MY OWN I decided to join the subscription service. The first package that arrived consisted of Barricade pre-emergent. I know Barricade has a superior reputation and is used by many professional landscapers throughout my area. The package came complete with directions for use, rubber gloves, and more. So - so far so good!
Let me start this by saying I hired a lawn company to take care of my yard last year. I bought a 6 application package that was slightly over 425 bucks.
Anyway they leave a detailed note on what they do each time. They first application they did last year was pre-emergent followed by 5 applications of basically just fertilizer. So by August my yard was full of weeds and I felt like I got ripped off and could do a better job myself. I researched everything and decided to go with this barricade as my first application of the year.
I ordered this and just applied it yesterday as we seem to be having a early spring.
I have a earthway spreader and used 12 as my setting. I will update this in a few months to give you a good idea how well this worked and my total spent. I’m at 78 bucks right now
The pre=emergent that I used last fall did not do the job so it is hard to tell if the Barricade is working. I don't think that anything new is coming out but I am going to have to use a post emergent on poa anna and henbit that are all over the place.
I wouldn’t recommend this product compared to the promate granular barricade. I put down 4.0 lbs per 1000sqft on my zoysia lawn in late winter this year and I’ve had more weeds than ever. This will be my last time using this brand. I don’t know what the hype is over “The Anderson’s” products.
How do I set my Scott broadcast spreader to apply Andersons 0.48 Barricade Herbicide?
Unfortunately we do not have the spreader settings for that specific combo and the manufacturer does not list that spreader on their bag of Andersons 0.48 Barricade Herbicide. Due to there being thousands of granules on the market and just as many different types of spreaders, you will want to calibrate your spreader to the product you are using and its application rates. You can see a short video on how to accomplish this below.
Can I overseed after an application of Andersons 0.48 Barricade Herbicide? If so, what is the timeframe?
Yes, you are able to overseed after an application of Andersons 0.48 Barricade Herbicide. This product could inhibit the germination of turf species if you overseed too soon after an application. Please follow the intervals given based on the rates used on the table located on page two of the product label for best overseeding/reseeding results.
When used at the lowest rates, it starts at 4 months after application that you can overseed.
