Spring Valley broadleaf control products utilize the best ingredients for maximum granule coverage resulting in superior control. Combination fertilizers with broadleaf weed control (commonly referred to as “weed & feed”) products perform best when applied during periods of active weed growth (late spring through early fall). Most products require active ingredient absorption through the weed leaf before it can be effective in eradicating broadleaf weeds. Applying to wet turf (early morning dew or irrigation) provides an opportunity for the fertilizer granule to stick to weed leaves which gives the active ingredient being carried on the granule the greatest chance of being absorbed by the plant tissue. This application on wet turf, followed by direct sunlight during periods of active growth, provides the best results for weed and feed treatment.
