Bonide Weed Beater Ultra is a post-emergent herbicide that is ideal in maintaining turfgrasses. It is highly effective to use on more than 200 broadleaf weeds in both warm and cool season kind of grass. It works best during cool weather, making it perfect to apply late in fall and in early spring during temperatures as low as 45 degrees F.

The Bonide Weed Beater Ultra contains four different active ingredients to widen the spectrum of controlled weeds, including Aster, bedstraw, black mustard, cocklebur, daisy, dandelion, cockle, elderberry, and other types of weeds. It provides visible results in just a few hours or within a day. Use this herbicide and reseed in 14 days.
This provides selective broad-leaf control in the cool and warm-season turfgrass.

Early post-emergent applications of this product are recommended for annual, biennial, and perennial weeds. Apply this product to broadleaf weeds that are young and actively growing for the best results. This product combines a contact herbicide with systemic herbicides and provides little or no residual activity at specified use rates.
This may be applied as a single broadcast application or as a split/sequential broadcast application in the spring, summer, or fall. Spring and fall treatments under adequate soil moisture conditions are preferred to the summer treatments. Generally, summer broadcast applications to older, drought-stressed weeds are less effective.
Sequential broadcast applications or follow-up applications as spot treatments at 30 days are recommended for more mature weeds, for dense infestations, and for adverse environmental conditions.
Spot treatments during the summer may be appropriate for sparse infestations, or as a follow-up treatment, or any time broadleaf weeds are susceptible. Apply on a spray-to-wet basis for the best results.
Extremes in environmental conditions, e.g. temperature and moisture, soil conditions, and cultural practices may affect the activity of this product. Under warm moist conditions, herbicide symptoms may be accelerated. While under very dry conditions, the expression of herbicide symptoms is delayed, and weeds hardened off by drought are less susceptible to this product.
For newly seeded areas:
The application of this product to grass seedlings is recommended after the second mowing.
For newly sodded, sprigged, or plugged areas:
The application of this product to newly sodded, sprigged, or plugged grasses should be delayed until 3 to 4 weeks after the sodding, sprigging, or plugging operations.
For dormant turf:
Applications to dormant bermudagrass and dormant zoysiagrass are suggested.
Prohibitions for applications schedules:
Do not broadcast apply when air temperatures exceed 85 degrees F; some injury may be expected with spot treatments when aor temperatures exceed 85 degrees F.
I live on 20 acres and learned about Bonide Weed Beater Ultra from a radio show called Gardenline. This product works in cooler weather and works well on broad leaf plants and weeds. I spray my fence lines and both sides of our road. Try it you will not be disappointed

What is the rate per gallon for Bonide Weed Beater Ultra that I should use for a lawn?
I'm using an Ortho Dial and Spray.
Bonide Weed Beater Ultra is applied at the rate of 1.5-2.4 oz. per gallon of water per 1000 sq. ft. for cool-season grasses, or 0.75-1.8 oz. per gallon of water per 1000 sq. ft. for warm-season grasses. The manufacturer recommends using a hand-pump or backpack sprayer to apply to ensure the most accurate application.
