As a fertilizer, this is good stuff, although pricey for only that. As a weed killer, well, it's a good fertilizer. The existing weeds are still thriving 3 weeks after application. It's too early to say anything about crabgrass prevention, but based on it's poor performance at killing weeds that are listed on the label, I'm not counting on much.
It may be too late in the season for post-emergent control, even for weeds listed on the product label. Per the product label:
"Apply when weeds are young and actively growing, preferably in the morning when dew is on the grass. If grass is not moist at time of application, sprinkle lightly with water to hold the material on the Broadleaf weeds."
How much area does on bag of Ferti-Lome Crabgrass Preventer cover? How much needed for 1.25 acres?

How long Ferti-Lome Pro-Turf Crabgrass Preventer last before re-applying?
