The following precautions apply to the use of Pro-Mate 5-5-25 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 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 Pro-Mate 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 Pro-Mate 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 this product 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. of Pro-Mate per acre per calendar year.
Rates of Application:
Pro-Mate 5-5-25 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 this product is related to the rate applied.
Maximum Annual Rates:
Pro-Mate 5-5-25 is 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.
Applied once every three months for a year. Poa Anna controll was deemed mediocre (in Burmuda), but other weed control was very good. Used REVOLVER at 1/2 oz per gallon (6 gallons for 6,000 sq ft) in the spring and got very good "knock-down" of Poa Anna.
Based on green up and growth alone this stuff works very well but I bought it for poa annua control so wont know until Spring. I checked soil temp and added 5lb/1000 sqft which is almost my yearly max for blue grass as I plan on using corn gluten in the Spring for crab grass. I will ammend my review next June.
Can Pro-Mate 5-5-25 Fertilizer with Barricade Pre Emergent be used on residential lawns ?
If so what would the setting be on a scotts broadcast spreader ?
Yes, Pro-Mate 5-5-25 Fertilizer with Barricade Pre Emergent can be used on residential lawns. You should apply at 5 lbs per 1000 square feet. Typically you would use the center setting on your spreader minus 1.. If you spreader goes from a 1 to 10, then use a 4 or 5. If it goes 1 - 20 then use a 9 or 10. Your individual spreader may be different, but the goal is to measure 5 lbs and apply evenly over 1000 square feet.
