Momentum FX and Fertilizer timing

I hit my yard with Momentum earlier this summer and it worked very well but with the constant rain in northern Ohio many of the broads I killed are back so I would like to hit it again. I also haven't fertilized since May so I want to do that now as well.

What should I do first and how far apart before doing the next?

I am also renovating the front yard by core aeration and overseeding yard, what is the consensus on starter fertilizer before or after I lay the seed, any specific deetz on how many days either before or after?
Thanks in advance.

I have southern warm season grasses, but at the time of my applications, the fertilizer is applied at the same time. I will spread the fertilizer, then treat the lawn either by blanket or spot.

My opinion...you can fertilize and apply the Momentum the same day--no problem. However many of those weeds are summer annuals, like spurge. Tough to kill and will be killed by frost anyway. You should plan on another weed control in October to clean out the winter annuals and new seeding perennials, like dandelion.

No problem, you can apply starter fertilizer either before or after the seed--works either way.
