    Default Chufa

    Iíve researched old threads and cannot find the answer Iím looking for. When applying a granular pre-emergent, can I fertilize and plant simultaneously or do I need to wait a week or two for the pre-emergent to take action?

    Why not wait until the chufa can absorb the fertilizer,......like 4 weeks.......especially if you are adding nitrogen.

    Ok. But can I apply the seed and herbicide simultaneously without hurting the seed?

    Can you?

    Sure.

    Should you?

    That would be a bit like pissing in the wind.

    We use Treflan at the time of planting.. FWIW, we always plant in late May- early June.

    Fertilize 4 -5 weeks after planting.. this has worked for us for years without fail.

    I realize I should I have worded my question better. I’m planning to use Treflan, but I was not sure if I could apply it at the same time I plant the seed. I will wait to fertilize. Thanks for the help.
