NEW PLANTINGS, REPLANTING, AND ROTATIONAL PLANTINGS
Nursery, landscape, or non-crop land areas treated with Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide should be rotated only to ornamental species listed on this label for 1 year following application unless the following test has shown species safety: Before planting a species not listed on this label, it is recommended that several test strips of an indicator plant such as wheat, sorghum, or corn be sown into the treated area. If the indicator plants germinate and grow normally to a height of 12 inches with normal root development, it is safe to plant.
In areas disturbed by new plantings or replanting of labeled species, it may be necessary to retreat exposed soil to maintain satisfactory weed control.
When an adjuvant is to be used with this product, Alligare, LLC suggests the use of a Chemical Producers and Distributors Association certified adjuvant.

SPECIAL USE DIRECTIONS:
Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide is a preemergence herbicide that, when properly applied, will control certain grass and broadleaf weeds in established turfgrasses including:
golf courses excluding putting greens
The maximum amount of Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide that may be applied per year is given for each turfgrass species in the Annual Use Rates-Turfgrass section of this label.
For optimum weed control, Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide should be activated by at least 0.5 inch of rainfall or irrigation before weed seeds germinate and within 14 days following application.
Use Precautions - Turfgrass
Do not apply Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide to areas where dichondra, colonial bentgrass, velvet bentgrass, or annual bluegrass (Poa annua) are desirable species.
Do not harvest treated sod within 90 days of application. To avoid turfgrass injury, do not apply to newly set sod until the sod has rooted and exposed edges have filled in.
To avoid turfgrass injury, do not apply Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide to turf stressed by conditions such as drought, low fertility, or pest damage.
Disturbing the herbicide barrier with cultural practices such as disking may result in reduced weed control.
Do not apply Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide to golf course putting greens.
If the depth of the creeping bentgrass root system becomes shallow and root tips contact prodiamine-treated soil, new root formation may be inhibited. Mowing height can affect the depth of a plant’s root system. To avoid this, do not apply Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide to creeping bentgrass less than 0.5 inch in height.
Application Timing and Rate-Turfgrass
Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide may be applied as a single application or in sequential applications to control weeds germinating throughout the year. All applications should be made before target weeds germinate. Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide will not control weeds that have already emerged.
The amount of Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide to apply is based upon:
the length of weed control desired (the higher the application rate, the longer the control)
the turf species; and
the maximum amount which can be applied to the turf species per calendar year
Weeds Controlled (Turf, Ornamentals):
When used as directed in this label, Alligare Prodiamine 65 WG Herbicide will control the following weeds:
