Pre-book your fertilizer for the spring season.
Pricing seems to be staying steady but is expected to have a gradual upturn into the spring. Some fertilizer blends are affected by Ice Melt Products, so pre-booking is a good way to ensure the lowest prices.

Tips for Using Burndow Herbicides
Do not apply either glyphosate or Gramozone unless daytime temperatures exceed 55-60` F.
The higher the temperature the better.
Cold nights (<40`F) will reduce activity, particularly for glyphosate.
Sunny weather is important for Gramoxone as sun causes greater plant activity.
Be sure to include AMS at 8.5 to 17 lbs/100gal or equivalent with glyohosate and add a good quality NIS at a .25% v/v to Gramoxone. Of course, if the glyphosate doesn't come fully loaded, add good quality NIS as well.
Nitrogen solutions (UAN) may be used as the carrier with either herbicide. UAN can increase Gramoxone activity and reduce glyphosate activity (especially for perennials and difficult to control weeds). Adding AMS also reduces the antagonism.
Tank mixing a triazine such as atrazine with Gramoxone increases the activity; tank mixing any other herbicide and especially a clay-based herbicide (DF,F,WP) reduces glyphosate activity. YOU can overcome the antagonism by increasing the glyphosate rate by 20 to 25%.
Use Flat fan tips with both (not floods) and apply Gramoxone at a minimum of 20 GPA. Tip selection is less important with glyphosate than Gramoxone.
Spraying in late afternoon is not as effective as mid morning.
Finally, spray weeds that are actively growing and the smaller, the better for annuals.

If so, do you know what time of year they germinate?

"You have to do a thousand things one percent better, not just do one thing a thousand percent better. It's doing the little things well, being on time for meetings, returning phone calls, saying thank you to people. It sounds like a cliché, but that is the reason one organization or one person is successful over someone else. Everyone knows what they ought to be doing, but the ones who practice daily excellence are the real difference makers."
