Do not use this product where desirable clovers are present or allow the product to wind drift onto flowers, vegetables, ornamentals, shrubs, trees or other desirable plants.
WHEN TO APPLY:
Best results are obtained when weeds are growing actively in Spring or early Fall. Avoid contact with desirable shrubs, plants, vegetables, or flowers; especially when applying with a rotary (spinner) type spreader. Do not reseed for at least 3 to 4 weeks after application. Do not apply to newly seeded or sodded lawn until after 3 mowings.
For optimum results:
Avoid mowing 1 to 2 days before and after application.
Apply when grass is moist (after rain, sprinkling or dew).
Avoid unnecessary disturbances, including watering of treated areas for 48 hours after application. Watering will wash off weed killing material.
Avoid applying if rainfall is expected within 48 hours following treatment.
Possible retreatment in 30 days may be necessary if lawn is heavily overrun with weeds or if adverse low moisture conditions prevail and weeds are in a state of poor growth. Do not exceed specified rates because damage to turf may occur.
NOTE: When applying to Southern grasses - under conditions of inadequate moisture, high temperature and high humidity, over-application may cause minor transitory discoloration on Centipede and St. Augustine grasses. It is recommended that during hot, dry conditions, application rates should be reduced by 50% to avoid possible dehydration or browning of grass.
