Way back when, as in 1997, Rick Tasco of Superstition Iris  Gardens spoke on 
this list about Surflan. He observed that the label  stated the plants had to 
be rooted before its use, and he spoke of avoiding  buildup in the soil. These 
posts are in the archives. This was the same era in  which Superstition was 
into solarizing. It would be interesting to know  what the situation is there 
now. At any rate, the search term  "Surflan" will bring up a lot of interesting 
information on point by  Tasco and by others. So will the search terms  
"Preen", and "preemergent." The archives are found at

I had a note asking me what I meant earlier by local  'official'  
recommendations for Surflan and Dacthal. What I intended was the last  time I checked 
with the Extension Service--several years ago now-- the word  was that Virginia 
Polytechnic Institute-- the state agricultural  college-- was recommending 
those two chemicals for irises. All disclaimers  apply.
