DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  • Not for use on turf being grown for sale or other commercial use as sod, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
  • Not for use on plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes.
  • For use on plants intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification and being grown in ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf courses or lawns.

USE DIRECTIONS FOR TURF:

This product, containing Dimension herbicide, can be applied up to 4 weeks later than other crabgrass preventers and provides up to 4 months of crabgrass control.

This product provides preemergence control of crabgrass and control or suppression of other listed weeds when applied prior to their germination. In addition, this product provides postemergence control of seedling crabgrass after germination and emergence. Postemergence control is limited to crabgrass only, but is effective up to 4 weeks after crabgrass has germinated. This generally corresponds to the time when crabgrass seedlings first become visible in the established turfgrass. Do not apply this product later than 4 weeks after crabgrass germination.

Apply this product only to turfgrass species listed on this label. The following turfgrass species are tolerant to this product when applied as directed:

Cool-Season Grasses:

Bentgrass (creeping), Fescue (tall), Fescue (fine), Bluegrass (Kentucky), Ryegrass (perennial)

Warm-Season Grasses:

Bahiagrass, Bermudagrass, Buffalograss, Carpetgrass, Centipedegrass, St. Augustingrass, Zoysiagrass

Use Precautions for Turf

This product should be applied only to lawns and ornamental turfgrasses that are well established. For newly established lawns, initial application of this product should be made only after turfgrasses have developed a vigorous root system, uniform stand, and received at least two mowings following seeding, sodding, or sprigging.

Exception: In newly established lawns of Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass and/or tall fescue, this product may be applied two weeks after the first sign of germination.

  • Use of this product on lawns and ornamental turfgrasses that are not well established, or weakened by stress due to mechanical operations, pests, excessive temperatures, or lack of moisture may result in turfgrass injury.
  • For best results, cultural practices that disturb the soil, such as core-, spike-, or hydro-aerification, and verticutting, should be done before application of this product. Do not apply this product until turfgrass has recovered from the mechanical injury caused by these cultural practices.
  • Reseeding, Overseeding, or Sprigging: Reseeding, overseeding, or sprigging of areas treated with this product within 10 weeks after a single application of this product or within 16 weeks after a split application program totaling 4.3 lb/1000 sq ft (0.5 lb active ingredient per acre) or more may inhibit the establishment of desirable turfgrasses. When reseeding or overseeding follow proper cultural practices for seedbed preparation, seeding, irrigation and fertilization.

Other Use Precautions:

  • Do not use clippings from treated turf for mulching around vegetables or fruit trees.
  • Do not allow people or pets to enter treated area until dust has settled.

APPLICATION TIMING:

SPRING APPLICATION:

Control of Crabgrass: This product provides preemergence control of crabgrass and control or suppression of other listed weeds when applied prior to their germination. In addition, this product provides postemergence control of seedling crabgrass after germination and emergence. Postemergence control is limited to crabgrass only and is effective up to 4 weeks after germination of crabgrass. This generally corresponds to the time when crabgrass seedlings are at the 3-leaf stage of growth and first become visible in the established turf. This product will not control crabgrass at later growth stages when crabgrass plants begin to tiller (spread). Properly timed applications will control existing crabgrass and prevent further emergence of crabgrass seedlings. Do not apply this product later than 4 weeks after crabgrass germination.

Control or Suppression of Other Grass and Broadleaf Weeds: For control or suppression of other grass and broadleaf weeds, this product must be applied as a preventative treatment prior to their germination and emergence. Only crabgrass will be controlled with applications made up to 4 weeks after weed germination.

FALL APPLICATION:

This product can also be applied from late summer through early fall (late August through November). When applied in the fall, a sequential or second application of this product must be made the following spring to provide season-long control of crabgrass. If this product is applied in the fall, do not reseed, overseed or sprig turfgrasses within 12 weeks after application.

Tips for Improved Weed Control:

  • For best results, apply this product within a few days after mowing and delay mowing again for a few days after the application.
  • The turf herbicide in this product is not effective until activated by rainfall or irrigation. Performance is improved if application is followed by 1/2 inch of rainfall or sprinkler irrigation. Erratic weed control may result if not activated by rainfall or irrigation within 30 days after application.

APPLICATION TIMING AND RECOMMENDATIONS:

This product is a preemergence herbicide that will not control established weeds. Make applications prior to weed seed germination. Bare ground or mulched areas may be treated. The best weed control is obtained when applied to soil that is free of clods, weeds and debris such as leaves. Prior to making an application, control existing vegetation by hand weeding, cultivation or with a postemergence herbicide. Avoid disturbance of treated areas. Loss of weed control may result if the treated soil surface is disturbed by soil mixing or tillage.

USE PRECAUTIONS:

  • Apply this product only to established ornamentals.
  • Do not incorporate this product into soil. Dilution of active ingredient and possible injury to plant roots may occur.
  • Do not apply to soil around ornamental plants that are under stress due to drought, flooding, excessive fertilizer or soil salts, wind injury, hail, frost damage, winter injury, injury from previously applied pesticides or injury due to insects, nematodes or disease.
  • To avoid foliar damage to ornamentals, irrigate immediately after application to remove herbicide particles from the foliage.
  • Do not apply under conditions that would affect product distribution. Wind could affect distribution and move product onto sensitive species. Uneven product distribution will result in uneven weed control.
  • Do not apply another herbicide within 4 weeks of application of this product.
  • Do not apply this product to bare roots of ornamental plants as injury may result. Following transplanting, care must be taken that soil or planting mixes have settled firmly through irrigation, rainfall or packing and that there are no cracks that would allow direct contact of this product to the plant roots or plant injury may occur.
