    What do you recomend for a fall weed control application. Some of the research Ive done advises me to apply broadleaf killer, and some has said to just fertilize and the weeds will all die in the frost (partially true)

    which one is correct?

    thank you

    annual weeds will die with the frost, but not the perennials. Fall weed control will produce the best results of any weed control appllcation. Use an amine formulation until the temps are steady below 50 and then go to an ester. Any broadleaf weed control should do the job.

    We use Three-Way ester from the last week in Sept. thru Oct. with great results.
