Q.Can I Plant Gourds After I Treat With Atrazine And How Soon After Treatment

Zone 36609 | Anonymous added on February 18, 2021 | Answered

I have a nice sunny area in an area of my lawn which is full of weeds. The weeds are a large variety. There is no grass in this area just weeds. I want to treat the weeds with atrazine then plant gourds. How soon after I treat the weed can I plant.

Since you don't have grass in the area, I would use a non-selective herbicide. You also could solarize the soil since nothing else is there but weeds, instead of a chemical application. If I'm reading the Atrazine label correctly, it says to wait a year before planting in the treated area unless it is grass. When using a non-selective product such as glyphosate, you can plant in about a week.
