From the Field

Turf: Record breaking warm temperatures have pushed the weed control season earlier this year than most of us can ever remember. Dandelions, clover etc. are all active. Many chemicals can control these problems. Triplet, Trimec, Speed zone, and Cool Power are a few options to keep weeds under control. If you would like more information on any of these products please contact your representative.

Trees: Most of the preventative fungicide applications have already begun. Here is want we have heard from arborists. Apple Scab fungicide applications, they are in the process of completing the second of three foliar applications. Cedar apple rust and Diplodia tip blight fungicide applications begin next week. Zimmerman pine moth insecticide applications should be completed. Spring is a great time to fertilize trees and shrubs. We can help you start a PHC program.


EC Grow 25% PCSCU w/Viper Weed and Feed Fertilizer

Our 18-0-3 Weed and Feed with Viper is a premium grade post-emergent herbicide and turf food combination product that is used to control more than 250 types of broadleaf weeds.

Due to the powerful blend of four effective herbicides, weeds that come in contact with Viper will gradually die and disappear from turf.
