East Texas Ag News: Effective weed control products for lawn maintenance

EAST TEXAS (KLTVKTRE) - If you take a close look at your lawn, you will see green vegetation growing, but it’s not your turf-grass.

It’s only a matter of time until those winter annuals become spring weeds so it’s important you take action to eliminate them.

There are a number of weed control products available so the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service in Angelina County is helping us narrow them down based on active ingredients.

Look for products with Atrazine. Atrazine is both pre-emergent and post-emergent and it’s safe on lawns.

It can be found under a number of trade names at most every garden center

Read and follow the label instructions carefully and when spring comes, you’ll have a much better looking lawn.
