Crabgrass Control Plus 0-0-7 with 0.37% Prodiamine Herbicide is a quality turf fertilizer that provides selective pre-emergence control of grass and broadleaf weeds in established lawns, perennials, wildflower turf, ornamental turf, and landscape ornamentals. Formulated with 100% of potash derived from muriate of potash. It has a uniform and physical blend to minimize separation and maximize uniformity of spread. Comes in a 50 lb bag that covers approximately 12,500 sq. ft.
Not for use on plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
For use on plants intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification and being grown in ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf courses or lawns and grounds. This is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that provides residual control of many grass and broad-leaf weeds in established lawns and ornamental turf-grass (excluding golf course greens), landscape ornamentals and established perennials and wildflower plantings. It controls susceptible weeds by inhibiting weed seeds germination and root development.
I have been using HJ Crabgrass Control for around 12 years. I had been buying from a local dealer who, for some reason, decided to retire!!
I could not find a suitable replacement from any Box Stores (all their crabgrass controls had a high nitrogen content, which I dislike). I discovered DoMyOwn website and decided to give them a try.
When I ordered four 50lb bags I did not realize it was a HJ product. I was very surprised, and Pleased!!
Delivery was fast! I will definitely use again!
Shipped in boxes that didn't fall apart. Was backordered for a bit, but shipped when estimated. Hard to determine today how well the product will block crabgrass...but I'm going off of faith from a YouTube channel called the lawn care nut.
Purchased a new home in 2017.....it was Summer when I moved in. The grass was absolutely infested with crabgrass (Upstate, NY). Obviously I just had to deal with it and wait until the following EARLY EARLY spring. When temps hit 50 degrees for a few days you better put this down ASAP! I set my spreader to 8 pounds per 1000 square feet and walked at a comfortable pace. The temps went down into the 40's again and cooler for another 3-4 weeks. So I went and put another 3 lbs down per 1000 square feet down.
I could NOT believe the results. I was totally expecting patches of crabgrasss to come back because of the amount I had the prior summer. I had none!! No lawn damage at all from the amount I put down which would be considered a lot. I was willing to take the risk of over-doing it because of the amount I had the prior Summer.
Did the same thing in 2019. EARLY SPRING!! 50 degrees or cooler is fine. Nothing warmer. I hope this helps someone out there.
I can't comment on the effectiveness of the preemergent since I only put it down a few weeks ago and the temps dropped back into the 60s since then; however, the service from DoMyOwn was nothing short of exceptional! I will be using them again this summer when I need fertilizer.
If I put down Lesco Turf Starter last week, how long do I need to wait to apply the Crabgrass Control Plus with Prodiamine?
And how long after that can I overseed my lawn?
It looks like the starter fertilizer you have will have quite a bit of N-P-K in it, while the Crabgrass Control Plus is only a 0-0-7 analysis. The extra potassium would not hurt your lawn since it is a pretty low addition, and you will not damage the lawn with the extra Potassium. Overseeding or new turf would be the concern, since you should only use a product like this containing Prodiamine on established turf (not new seeding) at least 60 days after seeding/overseeding. We would recommend waiting at least 3 months after using Crabgrass Control Plus before putting down any new seed.
I have a Scotts Turf Builder Edge Guard spreader. What setting do I need to apply Crabgrass Control Plus 0-0-7 with 0.37% Prodiamine Herbicide?
We apologize, but the manufacturer of Crabgrass Control Plus 0-0-7 with 0.37% Prodiamine Herbicide has not provided information on settings for that model spreader. You will need to calibrate your spreader to apply 4 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. We have a video that explains how to properly calibrate a spreader here. You can also contact Howard Johnson directly for more information at 417-637-5978.
Can Crabgrass Control Plus 0 - 0 - 7 with 0.37% Prodiamine Herbicide be used in mulched flower beds?
Crabgrass Control Plus 0 - 0 - 7 with 0.37% Prodiamine Herbicide can be applied to lawns, ornamental turf (excluding golf course putting greens), landscape ornamentals, and established perennials and wildflower plantings. The mulch may prevent the product from reaching the soil area where it needs to be watered in to prevent those weeds from germinating so mulching should be done after application.
