Pro-Mate 20-0-10 Fertilizer with Barricade is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that provides residual control of many grass and broadleaf weeds in:
Established turf grasses (excluding golf course putting greens) and lawns.
Pro-Mate controls susceptible weeds by inhibiting weed seed germination and root development. Most effective weed control will be obtained when this product is activated by at least 0.5 inch of rainfall or irrigation, or with shallow (1 - 2 inches) incorporation, prior to weed seed germination and within 14 days following application.
Apply uniformly with suitable, calibrated application equipment.
Pro-Mate is a selective pre-emergent herbicide that, when properly applied, will control certain grass and broadleaf weeds in established turf grasses and lawns. The maximum amount of Pro-Mate that may be applied per year is given for each turf grass species in the Maximum Annual Rates section of this label.
Most effective weed control in turf grasses will be obtained when this product is activated by at least 0.5 inch of rainfall or irrigation prior to weed seed germination and within 14 days following application. See the map on the label for approximate crabgrass seed germination dates.
The following precautions apply to the use of Pro-Mate 20-0-10 Fertilizer with barricade in turf grasses and lawns:
Do not graze or feed livestock forage cut from areas treated with Pro-Mate. Do not use on food producing plants.
Do not apply Pro-Mate through any type of irrigation system.
Do not apply aerially.
Do not apply to golf course putting greens.
Application of Pro-Mate 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, not 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 Pro-Mate to putting greens or areas where dichondra, colonial bentgrass, velvet bentgrass, or annual bluegrass (Poa annua) are desirable species.
Do not exceed a maximum of 400 lbs. product per acre per calendar year.
Rates of Application:
Pro-Mate 20-0-10 Fertilizer with barricade may be applied as a single application or in sequential applications to control weeds germinating throughout the year. All applications must be made prior to germination of the target weeds. Pro-Mate will not control established weeds. Maximum use rate selection should be based on turf species. The length of time of residual weed control provided by Pro-Mate is related to the rate applied.
Maximum Annual Rates:
Pro-Mate may be used for use on the turf grass species listed in the table on the label. Do not exceed the maximum yearly rate as given in the table.
Used this in early spring on my zoysia lawn and it killed large swatches of it. I applied per directions on the bag.
I tried to re-seed with no luck. Directions on the bag indicated it was safe for my type of lawn grass.
I am so grateful to your company for having this unusual fertilizer. I had my soil tested and the 20-0-10 was recommended. I could not find it anywhere!!!!------ until I found you! And to make it an even better situation you sent it with free shipping! Wow, Thank you so much. I look forward to a future with your company.
Seems ok. Not very much detail on the bag. I had to go look up my order to remember which one was the preemergent. But I put it down on new sod and it pretty much caused it to explode in growth so it works.
A landscape company recommended this fertilizer to help green up our lawn. This company's website was easy to use. Free shipping was awesome & it was delivered a few days after I ordered it. Our lawn is looking better already.
Will the 50lb bag of Pro-Mate treat 7,000 sq ft of annual blue grass?
Without knowing the type of turfgrass you are applying the product to or the area that you live in, I recommend that you click on the product label link for specific application instructions for Pro-Mate 20-0-10 Fertilizer The amount of product will vary for different turfgrasses and regions.
New lawn installed by contractor came up as crabgrass. I have been fighting this all summer with no luck. what product can I use and still be able to reseed this fall and put down a good furtlizer down his fall. In the spring I used Scotts New lawn seed and furtlized with Scotts for new lawns.
There are some products labeled to treat for Crabgrass in residential lawns. Without knowing the type of lawn you have, we are not able to recommend the proper herbicide. We recommend contacting you Master Gardener in your county to work on a restoration and fertilizing program. A Master Gardener is a great resource for homeowners on treatment schedules and products to have a successful lawn.
Which Pro-Mate fertilizer is recommended for spring feeding?
The type of Promate fertilizer needed depends on what nutrients your lawn is lacking. We recommend to contact your cooperative Extension Office and speak with the Master Gardener on duty. The Master Gardener will be able to assist you with a soil analysis.
