Other Use Precautions and Restrictions
Avoid spray drift onto vegetables, flowers, ornamental plants, shrubs, trees and other desirable plants since injury may result. Do not spray where grass is emerging from dormancy. Do not apply to newly seeded lawn grasses until well established. Do not spray when temperature exceeds 85°F. Seed can be sown three to four weeks after application. Do not use on carpetgrass, dichondra, closely mowed bentgrass, or on lawns where desirable clovers are present.

  1. Spray any time during the growing season when weeds are actively growing. Do not treat St. Augustine or centipedegrass during periods of heat stress (high temperatures) or drought stress.
  2. For best results, thoroughly water lawn one to two days before treating.
  3. Do not treat when air temperatures exceed 85°F or damage to grass may occur.
  4. Do not water within 24 hours after treatment. Poor weed control may result if spray is applied just before rain.
  5. On new lawns, wait until the grass has reached a height of 2 inches before treating. Wait three weeks after treatment before seeding or planting stolons in the bare spots.
  6. Avoid sprays that are too fine because they can drift and damage other plants.
  7. If certain tough weeds are not dead within three weeks, spot treat.
  8. It will take about 20 minutes to apply this bottle. Actual time will vary depending on water pressure.
