XL 2G Granules herbicide is a pre-emergence herbicide for control of certain annual grasses and broad-leaf weeds in container and landscape ornamentals, nursery stock, ground covers, established tall fescue and warm season turf, established flowers, ornamental bulbs, non-bearing fruit and nut trees and non-bearing vineyards, non-bearing berries, Christmas tree plantations, non-cropland and established tall fescue and warm season turf (including bahiagrass, bermudagrass, buffalograss, centipedegrass, St. Augustinegrass, and zoysiagrass). Apply XL 2G prior to germination of target weeds or immediately after cultivation. Length of weed control will vary with rate of XL 2G applied, weed population, potting media or soil conditions, temperature, watering regime, and other factors. Following application, user should monitor and observe level of weed control over time to determine when additional applications may be needed.
XL 2G does not control established weeds. Existing weeds should be controlled by cultivation or with post-emergence herbicides. Weed residues, prunings and trash should be removed or thoroughly mixed into soil prior to treatment. Soil should be in good condition and free of clods at the time of application. When applied to turf, it must be watered in as soon as possible after application to dissolve the granules. A single rainfall or irrigation of 1/2 inch or more is required after product application.

Excellent Pre-emergent granules
By Manley in Peoria, Arizona on 02/05/2014
This is the third time we have used this product and I highly recommend it. It is very easy to apply - much easier than the liquid type of pre-emergent which is very messy. Just need any granule spreader and away you go. Then you have to water the product into the ground with a garden hose. Also the results are excellent - keeps great control of wear growth. We will certainly use this agin.

Very effective on my centipede/St. Augustine mix lawn
By Michael in Chapin, SC on 04/27/2015
Laid down a pretty heavy coat on my front yard in Feb, by April the untreated back yard looked like a dandelion farm. Front yard was 95% clean, and although the grass hadn't come in yet was the most weed free yard in the area. Put the rest of the bag in back yard in April after mowing and aerating. Already notice a difference after several rains. Bought a second bag to apply in May for spurge control (what prompted me to get this in the first place). Will update this later this summer, but so far, very effective.

Pre-emergent Weed Control
By Kevin in Peoria, AZ on 02/23/2016
I've used this product for two years and it controls weed germination and weeds in my Arizona home very well. I apply the product once per year in the late winter (February) at the recommended dose rate and get all year weed control. This product only stops weeds before they grow so it must be applied and watered into the soil before weeds begin growing.
By Dan in Paducah, KY on 02/16/2016
This is an excellent product for all types of turf protection from weeds.
By Vern in Kearney on 04/26/2016
I don't understand the rave reviews for this product.I can't think of a weed that didn't come. I not sure if I applied wrong, I know I got it water in for sure.I think it's not for Buffalo grass as it claims. It's a glorified "Preen"
By Matt in Florence SC on 10/03/2016
Easy order, prompt delivery. Excellent transaction all the way around.

QWhen is the best time to apply the herbicide XL 2G? Also, should you water it in?
AEach area of the country has their own optimum times to apply Pre-Emergents like XL 2G granules. We recommend calling your local county extension office as they usually know the optimum times for applying pre-emergent to your lawn in your area. All granules depend on water to release the active ingredient they are carrying, so you should always water in granules thoroughly, including XL 2G.

QIs XL 2G Herbicide safe in my vegetable garden?
I was told that if I put some of the XL 2G Herbicide in my tomato/vegetable garden, it will stop the weeds ...I did, and now I'm upset that I could have hurt my garden... did I? If so...what should I do?
AUnfortunately you were given some bad advice. XL 2G is not labeled for use on fruit bearing or nut bearing trees and gardens. How hurtful to the actual vegetables this may be we are unsure. We would recommend calling the manufacturer for advice on if the vegetables can be saved. The manufacturer is Setre Chemical Company and they can be reached at 901-761-0050.
