Will Drive XLR8 take care of sandburs?
I'm going back and forth between Drive XLR8 and Target 6. I have crabgrass, sandbur, and occasionally foxtail. I know Target 6 will take care of all 3 of these but Drive XLR8 is cheaper and so I'm wanting to make sure that it will take care of all 3 as well.
Drive XLR8 is not labeled to treat for Sandburs. The best method of treatment for Sandburs is with a pre-emergent before the Sandburs germinate. A good option for a pre-emergent would be Surflan AS Herbicide but please refer to the product label to be sure it's safe for the type of grass you have. You can check Ferti-Lome Weed Out with Crabgrass Killer, it is labeled for Goathead which is another name for Sandbur, please refer to the product label to be sure it's safe for the type of grass you have.
