Win the Battle AND the War with Fertilizer + Mesotrione

Posted on October 04, 2019


Attack Weeds With An Unmatched Combination

Tackling your renovation or seeding project can feel like an uphill battle against weed competition.

Take the fight straight to the weeds with 21-22-4 Fertilizer with Mesotrione. This unique combination of fertilizer and herbicide eliminates grassy and broadleaf weeds while providing a high-quality, homogenous starter fertilizer to promote seedling germination and rapid establishment.


About Mesotrione

No other product has the weed control spectrum of Mesotrione, which suppresses many of the most troublesome pre and post-emergence grassy and broadleaf weeds, allowing new turf seedlings to thrive.

Mesotrione is based on a naturally-occurring compound that inhibits photosynthesis in susceptible plants. It is absorbed by plants through the roots, shoots, and leaves, allowing sunlight to destroy the chlorophyll and bleaching susceptible weeds. This bleaching typically occurs within a week of application, killing weeds and allowing desirable turf to recover after several weeks.

Primary weeds controlled by Mesotrione include:

  • Crabgrass
  • Yellow woodsorrel
  • Chickweed
  • Buckhorn plantain
  • Hairy bittercress
  • Dandelion
  • Clover

Weeds NOT controlled by Mesotrione include:

  • Sedges
  • Poa annua

For a complete list of controlled weeds, consult the product label.
