Apply to established turfgrass. Possible re-treatment in approximately 30 days may be necessary if turfgrass 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 turfgrass may occur. Do not make more than two applications per season.
Note: When applying to warm season turfgrass under conditions of inadequate moisture, high temperature and high humidity, over application may cause minor temporary discoloration. It is recommended to reduce application rates by 50% during hot, dry conditions to avoid possible dehydration or browning of turfgrass.
WHEN TO APPLY
Best weed control results are obtained when it is applied to small, actively growing weeds in the spring or early fall. Extreme growing conditions such as drought or near freezing temperatures prior to, at, or following time of application may reduce weed control. Broadleaf weed species germinate at different times.

APPLICATION TECHNIQUES FOR APPLYING FERTILOME DOLLAR WEED CONTROL
When using a drop-type spreader, a splash board mounted under the hopper will provide more even granule distribution.
A chain fastened to the side of the spreader and allowed to drag on the soil can be used to mark the edge of the treated swath and help prevent skips and overlaps.
For treating smaller areas, a hand held or push-type rotary applicator such as a whirlybird or cyclone unit is recommended.
For hand held units, walk and turn the crank at a constant rate of speed.
A shaker-type applicator made from a small container with holes punched in the bottom is recommended for small, difficult to treat areas. Carefully measure the amount of product needed to avoid over application.
The items that I have ordered came in a timely fashion. However, I am not too impressed with the dollar weed control as I have not seen a change in the amount of dollar weed. I have applied several applications and no change. I will continue to use domyownpestcontrol, but I will not be ordering this product anymore.
I used this product almost per label, I went a little heavier with the product. It just did not work if anything the Dollar Weed looked like it had just been feed. I went this way because it was cheaper, you get what you pay for. I have gone back to using Lontrel at 2 oz per gallon of water plus 1 oz of sticker. This will turn the grass a little yellow but if you put down some iron it brings it right back and all the Dollar Weed is gone.
I use it in a rotation for dollar weed so I do not use too much atrazine etc... The penoxsulam is the safest control in general I can find. Do your own search. Wish it was a spray. Gave it 2 stars for how well it works and an extra for safety.
Will Ferti-Lome Dollar Weed Control harm centipede or St. Augustine grass?

Can I use Fertilome Dollar Weed Control around my rose bushes to get rid of dollar weed?
Fertilome Dollar Weed Control should not come into contact with desirable ornamental plants such as your rose bushes. Unfortunately, products that will kill the dollarweed could also potentially harm the roses, so it would be best to spot treat carefully with a non-selective liquid spray such as RoundUp QuikPro. Snapshot is a pre-emergent herbicide labeled to control or suppress pennywort (dollarweed), and it is safe to use around most established ornamentals.
