herbicidesRussell Feed & Supply carries herbicides to help you get that weed-free lawn, garden, or pasture of your dreams. We stock a variety of herbicides, including organic and chemical options, from manufacturers like Nature’s Guide, Hi-Yield, Fertilome, Surflan and more! We stock pre-emergents to help prevent weeds from coming up, and post-emergents to treat weeds that have already arrived.

The organic pre-emergent is called Corn Gluten Meal. We offer it in a powdered form called Corn Gluten Meal or in a granule form called Corn Gluten Meal Granules.  Corn Gluten Meal works by interfering with the germination of seeds. There are twenty-two weed species that have been screened for susceptibility to corn gluten meal: Black Medic, Black Nightshade, Buckhorn Plantain, Catchweed, Bedstraw, Common Lambsquarter, Curly Dock, Dandelion, Purslane, Redroot Pigweed, Velvet-leaf, Annual Bluegrass, Creeping Bentgrass, Giant Foxtail, Large Crabgrass Orchardgrass, Quackgrass, Shattercane, Smooth Crabgrass, Wooly Cupgrass and Yellow Foxtail. Corn gluten meal significantly reduced plant survival, shoot length and root development of all tested species. Apply corn gluten meal at the rate of 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet.

A chemically or synthetically produced pre-emergent can also be used to control weed germination. At Russell Feed & Supply, we carry many pre-emergent options, including Hi-Yield Turf & Ornamental Weed & Grass Stopper with Dimension, Fertilome Broadleaf Weed Control with Gallery, Surflan XL 2G and more.

Weeds already taken over? We have solutions for that, too! For those who want to practice organic lawn care, we stock 20% vinegar for the weeds that are already up. 20% vinegar is completely organic and will kill any green vegetation it is applied to. Remember to apply only to vegetation you intend to kill.

On the chemical side, there are several products to choose from, including liquids and granules. Are broadleaf weeds still hanging around in your lawn? Use a product containing 2, 4-D in the lawn area to get rid of them.  We carry a large line of 2, 4-D products like Hi-Yield ready for you to apply to your lawn. Hi-Yield Weed & Feed 15-0-10 granules not only help control weeds, they also serve as a fertilizer for your yard!

Don’t let weeds choke out your crops, lawn, or pastures.  Not sure what you need?  Just ask, and we will help you find the best product for your particular situation. Come see us at Russell Feed & Supply and we’ll help you find a solution to keep those weeds under control.
