When you’re looking for a long acting method of controlling broadleaf and grassy weeds on golf courses look no further than the pre-emergent herbicide, Snapshot. Made by Dow AgroSciences this specialty herbicide works around the clock for up to six to eight months to keep turf and ornamentals weed free. The dispersible granules are absorbed easily into the ground, acting like a liquid herbicide but in granular form. EZ Buy Turf carries Snapshot in convenient 50 lb. bags.
Where it Works
You can safely use Snapshot on field grown or container grown ornamentals and turf. It can also be used on trees, shrubs, groundcovers, perennials, non-bearing fruit and nut tree and non-bearing vineyards.
Controls Weeds & Grasses
Snapshot controls or suppresses more than 125 broadleaf weeds and annual grasses and can be used on more than 635 different ornamentals without fear of injury. Some of the more common weeds controlled:
- Common Chickweed
When To Apply
With a flexible application schedule Snapshot can be applied in early spring, late summer to early fall or right after cultivation. For best results, rainfall or irrigation should occur within three days after application. As seeds germinate beneath the soil, Snapshot disrupts their development so before the seeds break to the surface, they die. The long lasting broad-spectrum control makes this a popular herbicide for golf courses everywhere.
Once activated, Snapshot remains as a deterrent to weed seed germination. Snapshot bonds tightly with soil particles and its low water solubility prevents it from leaving the root zone. Based on factors such as type of weeds and application rate, Snapshot provides up to six to eight months of continuous control.
