Fall pre-emergent and potassium nutrition are a must in almost all successful turf management programs. Granular fertilizers with impregnated pre-emergent herbicides have been a standard for many years.
Year over year these applications have become more and more expensive and full coverage is questionable. Wind, rainfall, and imperfect application can result in a less than desirable result. Granular applications can mean loss of play due to the burn potential carts can cause at or near application time.
I’ve learned that foliar applications are much more reliable, and applications are more precise. With the technology of our foliar fertilizers and water management products, your pre-emergent applications can be less expensive, more reliable, and create less disruption in play. Here’s my simple fall program:
- 2 lbs/acre of TurfRx K+ Microcrystal®
- 16-24oz/acre of Dispatch®
- Add in our NEW pre-emergent herbicide, Basilisk® UniTech®
It’s different, but I think you’ll like the results more than granular.
This Fall go beyond conventional pre-emergent applications and go with the leader in fertility and water management. Check out all our products today here.
(Note: Our products are compatible with most all professional turf products but always check label restrictions and perform a jar test if compatibility is questionable.)
