“There’s two reasons why we’re recommending producers not mix fungicides with herbicides,” he says. “One is the timing. Unless rust would come in very, very early in the crop season, if you waited to apply herbicide until you needed rust control, it would be too late to get effective weed control.

What is the difference between a herbicide pesticide and fungicide?

Fungicides, Herbicides and Pesticides Definition Fungicides target fungi and their spores, and herbicides control weeds. Both fungicides and herbicides are pesticides, but there are many more types of pesticides, including insecticides, disinfectants, antimicrobials and molluscicides.

Can I fertilize after applying fungicide?

How Long Should You Wait to Fertilize After Applying Fungicide? Wait 3–5 days after applying a liquid fungicide before spreading fertilizer in your lawn or garden. This will prevent watering (which is required to activate your fertilizer) from interfering with your fungicide application.

What is herbicide used for?

Can I apply fertilizer and fungicide at the same time?

You can apply fungicide and fertilizer simultaneously if you are applying a fungicide that needs to be watered into your lawn. Granular fertilizer requires water to break it down and cause it to enter the soil. If you are using a fungicide that is also activated by water, it will benefit from this process.
