    why is spring a bad time to kill weeds?

    In the Fall the pesticide is drawn into the roots better than Spring, the plant is storing energy for Winter. You still get kill in the Spring but usually better in the Fall. I do a good overall spray in the Spring and in the Fall I only do where it is needed.

    cantoo is right about that...for annual weeds it dosnt matter as much but with pereniel weeds they will be killed perminatly if you spray them in the fall.

    plus...weeds germinate at different times..<br>i did see the MILLINIUM ULTRA ad today in a trade magazine...that is the same way momemtum is suppose to work..systematic and foilage. i know most of you guys are sprayers..but i'm going to try the granular and let you know results..good or bad.One thing i am doing my applications from 5-8 am so i should have better results with dew on the grass.most of my lawns are in good shape,weed wise and i've told them about spot treating in the fall...(more work).<br>i think i'll be $$$ ahead...hopefully and have happy customers to boot!

    Slager, I have a question on the granular. How wide can you throw it? I am wondering how you keep it from getting onto flowers etc. With my liquid I can shut off either side of my boom and I can see exactly where the spray is going so I know how far to stay away from plants. I was thinking of trying grandular but not quite sure if it will work. My fertilizer spreader shoots about a 15' width but it's hard to control because it's wheel driven.
