IFA’s Crabgrass Preventer + Lawn Food gives your turf a strong start for months of thick, emerald grass that will leave your neighbors green with envy.
This early-spring 23-3-8 lawn fertilizer combines key nutrients with pre-emergent herbicide. Nitrogen promotes fast green-up, while added iron helps grass develop the energy-producing green chlorophyll it needs after being dormant over the winter.
Phosphorus supports strong root growth, potassium helps your grassy turf resist drought and disease, while the preemergence herbicide prevents early turf-invaders like crabgrass, spurge and other grassy weeds. And unlike other fertilizers, IFA’s Crabgrass Preventer + Lawn Food is locally-formulated specifically for the soil and seasonal conditions of the intermountain west area.
