    Q
    What type of grass can this product be used on and when?
    A
    Pro-Mate 22-2-4 can be used on most types of warm and cool season grasses. Do not use this product on dichondra, carpetgrass, St. Augustinegrass, closely-mowed bentgrass putting greens, or turf containing desirable clovers. Spring and fall applications are recommended for the best control. However, Pro-Mate 22-2-4 can be applied any time broad leaf weeds are present and actively growing. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to the master gardener on staff as they can provide you with the best product application time in your region.  Please take a few minutes to read over the Pro-Mate 22-2-4 product label for more information.

    Q
    Broadcast Spreader
    Which setting should I use on my Scott's Broadcast Spreader to apply the Pro-Mate?
    A

    Pro-Mate 22-2-4 Fertilizer with Trimec Post-Emegent - 50 lb. bag requires that you use 3.2-5 lbs. per 1000 square feet.

    If your spreader settings go from 1 to 10 (1 letting out the least and 10 letting out the most) you typically want to be around a 3 setting.  If your spreader goes from 1 to 20, you should probably be around a 6 or 7 setting.  The goal is to just run out of product when you are done walking the 1000 square feet.  One person may walk faster than someone else, so they may place It on a higher setting than someone that walks slower. 

    Almost all fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, etc have treatments in amounts of so much product per 1000 square feet.  So if you can figure out what your walking speed is then you know anytime you apply any product that calls for so much of it per 1000 square feet, you always set your spreader on this setting.  You can calibrate this by marking off a 1000 square foot (10 x 100) area and placing 4 ounces of any type of product of similar granule size, or of the extinguish in the spreader.  Start with a low setting and start walking your marked off area at a normal pace.  You can adjust as you go and find the basic setting for you to apply the product over a 1000 square feet.

    How long should i wait to apply this product after i used lime on my lawn?
    A
    Ideally, lime should be applied in the fall because it normally takes a couple of months to reach full effectiveness. You can apply in the spring but it is recommended to wait a couple of months before applying a fertilizer that that the lime and fertilizer do not counteract each other.

    Q
    Can Pro-Mate 22-2-4 Fertilizer with Trimec Post-Emergent be used in rice?
    A
    Pro-Mate 22-2-4 Fertilizer with Trimec Post-Emergent is not labeled to be used in any edible fields.  We are not as familiar with products that are safe to be used in agricultural areas as we are new to that side of products. We recommend contacting your local department of agriculture to get recommendations that local farmers use for weed and grass control in crops. Once they give you a product name or ingredient, give us a call and we would be more than happy to see if we carry it or can get it for you

    Unfortunately, the Pro-Mate 22-2-4 Fertilizer with Trimec Post-Emergent is not labeled for St. Augustine grass.
