Soil Testing for Lawns
Soil testing provides an estimate of the plant-available nutrients in the soil and is an essential tool for a sound fertilization program. Periodic soil testing will help to correct nutrient deficiencies, avoid excess fertilizer applications, and maintain a healthy lawn.
A routine soil fertility test (pH, neutralized acidity, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, organic matter, and cation exchange capacity) is recommended under the following circumstances:
- Before establishing a new lawn, whether from seed, sod, or sprigs.
- Every three years on established lawns.
- Annually when attempting to correct a nutrient deficiency or change the soil pH.
- When fertilizers containing phosphate or potash have been used on a regular basis for several years.

16-16-16 40% U F with Team® Pro
Weed controlled when applied prior to weed germination.
16-16-16 w/Team Pro provides turf managers with the qualities they want most in a preemergence herbicide -effectiveness and economics. Since its introduction, Team Pro has proven effective at stopping troublesome annual grassy weeds and key broadleaf weeds in established turf - even in areas of heavy infestation. Its unsurpassed control of tough weeds, long residual, safety to nearby ornamentals and non-staining formula have made Team Pro a reliable teammate for golf course superintendents, turf and lawncare professionals, and nurseries.
How It Works
Product must be applied prior to weed seed germination and activated by at least 1 /2 inch of rainfall or irrigation. Once activated, Team Pro sets up a solid "weed prevention zone" about 1 /2 inch below the soil surface - and since it is relatively water insoluble, it resists leaching out of this zone.
16-16-16 Team Pro specialty herbicide stops weeds from germinating by inhibiting cell division in the seed as soon as it begins to root.
Product is a broad-spectrum herbicide that provides effective preemergence control of grasses and unsurpassed control of key broad leaf weeds.
