Pre emergent on two month old sod

lawnman77August 22, 2014

Hello all.
Really hoping that someone can answer a question that I have been unable to find answers to. I installed sod (KBG) two months ago in Northern Ohio and wondering if it would be safe to but down Prodiamine pre emergent right now. I am worried about POA Annua especially with the tremendous amount of rain we have received this summer. Appreciate the help on this one.

I do not think it would be a good idea. Most pre emergents are root growth inhibitors. The new sod needs to grow roots to become established.

Thank you Botanticalbill. Do think it will be ok to put the prem on in spring?
