Funny you should ask. I spent several hours today digging wild violets on my property as preparation to convert the bed into a pollinator garden. Yeah, I know it's a lot of work and wild violets are great pollinators but the violets are invading my lawn area and I'd rather not expose my dogs to chemicals.

If your applying in cooler weather, sure power probably with ester. Chaser might be the better choice in hot weather as there's no ester

Sure Power has no temp restrictions and was developed to be applied durning the summer months before September 15th. It’s actually not recommend to apply in cool weather. This comes straight from Nufarm.

It's always been my understanding that fall applications work best as plants are trans-locating nutrients to the roots.

Just checked and your right, however it does say it may volatilize during low humidity and high temps. I've always just stayed away from any esters during summer months, good to know about this though.

That is normally the case but not with Sure Power. Studies conducted showed more activity during the hot summer months. I’m just repeating what Nufarm’s Technical Director has echoed many times.

In cooler and wetter weather SurePower will tip burn your turf, pretty bad in some cases. I have seen it so I follow NuFarms recommendation.
