Favorite Pre-emergent

In terms of granular products what is your pre-emergent of choice? This is based on overall performance and quality. I know that tupersan is the method of choice if you are also seeding however I've read that it is short-lived. I've heard good things about both dimension and barricade and that they both lasted 3-6 months. The other methods products I haven't heard much about. Comments?

BTW, I pulled this list from a google search on pre-emergents so if it looks familiar to you it's because I found it on the internet somewhere.

I think it depends on what you are using it for to determine your "favorite"

I guess it's too late to edit the title as I don't see the option, but I should've mentioned that I was referring to controlling crabgrass specifically.

Most of the "experts" in my area still say that Dimension is the best for crab, but I prefer the Barricade because of the lenght of control and I have had good luck with it.

Used Barricade last year for the first time.
I was very impressed and will be applying here again in a few weeks.

There is nothing better on broadleaf than gallery. You can spray it over the top of o lot of different plants for beds.

I prefer barricade for is very precise length of control...label says 3 months rather than 2-4 months...maybe market hype, but I follow labels.

I used evade last yr, prodiamine. It was also 200 sgn so the smaller particles really helped especially along the edges. I was every impressed with the control, it was amazing. I cut my post crab control costs by 80% plus last year. Id recommend is to anyone
