What Weed & Feed Should Be Used for Florida Winter Lawns?

According to the University of Florida Extension, for established turfgrass, use a weed-and-feed product that contains oryzalin (Surflan), benefin (Balan) or pendimethalin (Pendulum, Pre-M) to control annual grass and some broadleaf weeds. Using a product that contains oxadiazon (Ronstar), bunsulide (Betasan, Pre-San) or dithiopyr (Dimension) will also provide preemergence annual grass and broadleaf control. Apply the product in the winter before the weeds emerge.
