Answer #2 ·'s Answer · Hi Ron - Here's a link to an article in Gardenality about Hi-Yield Weed & Grass Stopper (Treflan). In the article there is a link to the product label, where you can find a list of the seeded and transplant vegetables it can be safely used around, and a link to the Material Safety Data Sheet.

I'm an organic vegetable gardener so only use Treflan in landscape beds, around ornamental shrubs and trees. The stuff works great to control weed growth for up to a year, depending on the amount of rainfall. Instead of using preemergence in the garden I just spray weeds with Avenger weed killer. This is an OMRI listed organic weed killer. It kills young weeds in about 30 to 45 minutes. It works best on smaller weeds (3 inches and under) so I spray at least once or twice a week to avoid letting the weeds get too tall and large. I've also been hearing a lot about corn gluten and how it can be used in the vegetable garden, but haven't done the research on it yet.

Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Ron-Kansas State University Research and Extension has a site regarding the use of preemergence herbicides on garden vegetables. There is a good list of vegetables that the High Yield with Treflan and other herbicides can be used on and when and how they should be used.

I noted the link to this site below. Just click on the link to go directly to this site.

Hope this helps.
