Does the 18-0-6 work?
And I wondered why Canada was reducing the amount of Fertilizer and Pesticides allowed.....now I know

How would Iron alone help reduce weeds? A healthy turf stand will essentially limit weeds by not giving them room to invade. But if you have weeds prior to putting down fert - you will have well fed weeds after putting down the fertilizer.
