Will Preen in the Soil Hurt the Vegetable Seeds I Plant?

According to the OSU Extension, many vegetable seeds can be planted in soil treated with Preen. Large seeds, like beans and peas, are placed deeper in the soil. Smaller seeds, like carrots, are closer to the top of the soil and may have more trouble if Preen has been recently applied. The Preen label has a table listing when to applly Preen in vegetable gardens.
