Snapshot DG herbicide is a selective pre-emergence herbicide for control of certain broadleaf weeds and annual grasses in container and field grown ornamentals, landscape ornamentals, and a variety of other areas. It is effective on more than 125 broadleaf and grassy weeds. It can be used over the top of more than 600 labeled ornamentals. This DG formulation features a dispersible granule, which delivers the active ingredient into the soil fast to control your toughest weeds. It is easy to spread and has great flowability. Each granule is made up of thousands of subparticles that break apart with as little as 0.2 inches of moisture.
Apply Snapshot DG with a drop or rotary-type speader designed specifically to apply granule herbicides and insecticides. Make sure to apply immediately after germination or anytime before cultivation of target weeds. After application, the user should watch the level of weed control over time to determine when any additional applications should be applied. The length of weed control will be determined by the rate at which Snapshot DG is applied as well as temperature, weed population, soil or potting media conditions, watering regime, and temperature. Multiple applications at 150 lbs. per acre and higher should not be made any sooner than 60 days after the initial application of Snapshot DG. Snapshot DG provides up to eight months of control.
I heard good things about this product so I decided to spring for it and see how it worked. So far so good - even with hot weather, then cool weather, then rain, etc., Weeds don't really seem to be sprouting up. I plan on keeping on with using it and hopefully it will continue to work well.
What is the difference between Snapshot 2.5TG and Snapshot DG?
What is the difference between snapshot 2.5TG n snapshot DG other than bag size?Does one last longer force red control than the other?thx.
According to our Rep with Dow Agro, there is not any difference besides the package size and the coloring of the granule. The SnapShot 2.5 TG is a yellow color granule and comes in a 50lb bag. The Snapshot 2.5 DG is a brown color and comes in a 25lb bag. The application and active ingredients are both the same. They make the 2 different types due to some Turf Pros not wanting a yellow granule and prefer the brown granule
Will Snapshot work in my juniper beds that I'm weeding out?
Many acorns sprout from the oak trees in my yard. I find that Snapshot works very good in my yard without killing the grass. But most weed killers kill my juniper. I want to try Snapshot on it but am concerned it, too, will kill my juniper.
Snapshot DG Herbicide is safe to apply around listed juniper varieties for weeds. It should not be applied to lawns and other areas with desired turfgrass.
