This is the "translation" of the label, the one shown before isn't the correct one, sorry!

My dealer said that product will act as a contact herbicide. Is it true? or at least half way true? lol

total (N)..................................................................................20.00
17.1% Stabilized Nitrogen
2.9% Nitrogen Nitric

Potassium (K2O).......................................................................10.00
Magnesium (Mg)........................................................................1.20
Sulfure (S)...............................................................................1.50
Iron........................................................................................4.48
4.48% Iron chelated

EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic (chelated agent))......................23.0

Ingredients Urexx, DCD (dicyandiamide, N-(n-butyl)-thiophosphoric triamide, Nitrate potassium, Sulfate de magnesium, Iron EDTA.
I fail to see how a granular product can serve as a contact herbicide. All the information I have seen on using chelated metals as a burn down herbicide has been with regard to spray applications. Unless you are raising plant available iron in the soil to toxic levels, I wouldn't bet on this product working as an herbicide.
