|Weed and feed isn't a good product for your asparagus bed. If you can't pull or hoe the weeds out, you can spot treat the weeds with glyphosate (sold as Monsanto Roundup or Ortho Kleenup) as long as you are careful not to allow any of the herbicide to contact the asparagus. You can protect the asparagus by placing cardboard between the it and the weeds and then painting or spraying the herbicide on the weeds. Be careful - any drift will damage your asparagus.
