Details

XL 2G Granules herbicide is a pre-emergence herbicide for control of certain annual grasses and broad-leaf weeds in container and landscape ornamentals, nursery stock, ground covers, established tall fescue and warm season turf, established flowers, ornamental bulbs, non-bearing fruit and nut trees and non-bearing vineyards, non-bearing berries, Christmas tree plantations, non-cropland and established tall fescue and warm season turf (including bahiagrass, bermudagrass, buffalograss, centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass, and zoysiagrass). Apply XL 2G prior to germination of target weeds or immediately after cultivation. Length of weed control will vary with rate of XL 2G applied, weed population, potting media or soil conditions, temperature, watering regime, and other factors. Following application, user should monitor and observe level of weed control over time to determine when additional applications may be needed.

XL 2G does not control established weeds. Existing weeds should be controlled by cultivation or with post-emergence herbicides. Weed residues, prunings and trash should be removed or thoroughly mixed into soil prior to treatment. Soil should be in good condition and free of clods at the time of application. When applied to turf, it must be watered in as soon as possible after application to dissolve the granules. A single rainfall or irrigation of 1/2 inch or more is required after product application.

    Excellent Pre-emergent granules

    By Manley on 02/05/2014

    Verified Purchase

    This is the third time we have used this product and I highly recommend it. It is very easy to apply - much easier than the liquid type of pre-emergent which is very messy. Just need any granule spreader and away you go. Then you have to water the product into the ground with a garden hose. Also the results are excellent - keeps great control of wear growth. We will certainly use this agin.

Q
When is the best time to apply the herbicide XL 2G? Also, should you water it in?
A
Each area of the country has their own optimum times to apply Pre-Emergents like XL 2G granules.  We recommend calling your local county extension office as they usually know the optimum times for applying pre-emergent to your lawn in your area. All granules depend on water to release the active ingredient they are carrying, so you should always water in granules thoroughly, including XL 2G.

Q
Is XL 2G Herbicide safe in my vegetable garden?

I was told that if I put some of the XL 2G Herbicide in my tomato/vegetable garden, it will stop the weeds ...I did, and now I'm upset that I could have hurt my garden... did I? If so...what should I do?

A
Unfortunately you were given some bad advice.  XL 2G is not labeled for use on fruit bearing or nut bearing trees and gardens. How hurtful to the actual vegetables this may be we are unsure.  We would recommend calling the manufacturer for advice on if the vegetables can be saved.  The manufacturer is Setre Chemical Company and they can be reached at 901-761-0050.
