I applied an early season fertilizer with crabgrass halts in March. But
there are large patches of clover, and dandelions scattered everywhere.


I seem to recall that the Halts is only for preventing crabgrass (which
sprouts later in the summer) vs stopping other spring weeds from
germinating.


Halts is pendimethalin.

Surprisingly it's both a selective broadleaf and annual grass herbicide that is
both pre and post emergent.

But I wouldn't expect it to do crap on anything normally found in the lawn
except crabgrass.
