Only one application at 2 pounds a.i. (2.66 pts. of this product) per acre is allowed per season, except when a salvage operation is needed.
If a salvage operation is needed ( i.e., if Pigweed escapes the first application), then a second or repeat application at 2 pounds a.i. (2.66 pts. of this product) per acre is allowed.
A second or repeat application, if needed, should be timed 1 to 3 weeks after the first application. Apply only as a salvage operation. Apply only to healthy rapidly growing Cotton 3 inches high, but no later than 6 inches high or early square, whichever occurs first. Preference should be given to directed spray. In order to minimize injury, the second application should be made as a directed spray when possible.

Do not feed treated foliage to livestock or graze treated areas.
Post-Emergent Applications Using Ground or Aircraft Equipment as an Over-the-Top Broadcast
Spray when Cotton is 3 inches high until early first square stage as a salvage operation. One application: Apply 2.5 pints in 40 gallons of water for ground application, or in 5 to 10 gallons of water for aircraft application per acre. DO NOT repeat this treatment. Two applications: Mix at the rate of 1 to 1.25 pints of this product in 40 gallons of water for ground equipment or in 5 to 10 gallons of water for aircraft application per acre of Cotton. If needed, a second or repeat application should be made 1 to 3 weeks after the first application. Apply only as a salvage operation. Apply only to healthy, rapidly growing Cotton, 3 inches high, but no later than 6 inches high or early square, whichever occurs first. Preference should be given to directed sprays. In order to minimize injury, the second application should be made as a directed spray when possible. DO NOT make more than two applications per season. Do not feed treated foliage to livestock or graze treated areas.
Post-emergent Directed Spray Applications: Mix this product at the rate of 2.66 pints in 40 gallons of water per acre for application as directed broadcast spray when weeds are small. For band applications, mix 2.66 pints in 40 gallons of water per acre, then apply 1 gallon of the diluted spray for each 1 inch band width to be treated of Cotton grown on 40 inch row spacing. Direct the spray solution to the base of the Cotton plant. Nozzles should be placed so as to avoid spraying the Cotton foliage, but to give good coverage of the weeds. If regrowth occurs, make a second application about 1 to 3 weeks after the first. Make directed applications only when Cotton is 3 inches high to first bloom. Do not apply after first bloom. Do not feed treated foliage to livestock or graze treated areas.

I first starting using Drexel MSMA in the 70's at my parents home. I always wanted them to have the best looking lawn in the neighborhood. No really knowing about measuring, I sprayed the whole lawn with this stuff and it turned the yard brown. the temps were in the mid 80's. It stayed in the grass for about two weeks before I started watering it. This stuff really works.
You have to know how and when to use this stuff for it to be effective. it is a post emergent yes it will turn your lawn a little yellow but it will come right back if nixed correctly.. i LOVE this stuff and recommend it just do the research and use it
