Expert Response

Soil temperatures under the deep snow cover we experienced remained quite warm compared to the sub-zero temps recorded above the snow.  Many growers reported to me that the soils never froze this winter due to the heavy snow cover.  I would not expect any significant degradation of Prowl's effectiveness due to cold.

I do not know the answer to this question.  A product representative from the manufacturer would be able to help you.  There may also be information on the label which may provide an answer.
