Prodamine is an active ingredient labeled for use as a pre-emergent weed preventer. Prodiamine is often applied in the spring to prevent and control crabgrass and other broadleaf weeds in turf and lawns.
Prodiamine is the active ingredient found in the popular herbicide Barricade and other lawn and garden products, such as Prodiamine 65 WDG (Generic Barricade). It is labeled as a pre-emergent herbicide for the control of broadleaf weed and a number of undesirable grasses including spurge, bluegrass and witchgrass.

It is important to make the distinction that pre-emergent herbicides, like prodiamine, do not destroy weeds entirely but rather prevent growth. That is why you must apply pre-emergent herbicides annually to retain desired results.
Mode of Action
Prodiamine inihibits plant cell growth so that weeds are unable to grow.
Prodiamine is registered for commercial use to control weeds in nurseries, landscaping, turf farms, Christmas tree farms, golf courses, and more. Prodiamine can also be safely used on certain types of desirable grasses without harming them, such as Bermudagrass, Fescue, St. Augustine and common turf grasses.
