USE PRECAUTIONS - OBSERVE CAREFULLY.
ORNAMENTAL LAWNS, ORNAMENTAL TURFGRASS, GOLF COURSES AND SOD FARMS - As Broadcast Treatments:
Apply 3.0 to 4.0 pints of product per acre per application with spray volumes of 20 to 240 gallons per acre. Maximum control of weeds will be obtained from spring or early fall applications when weeds are
actively growing. Avoid applying during long excessively dry or hot periods unless adequate irrigation is available. Do not apply to newly seeded turf until well-established or after the second or third mowing.
Grass seed can be sown 3 to 4 weeks after application at the recommended rates.
Limitations on broadcast treatments for turfgrass on all use sites:
The maximum application rate is 4.0 pints of product per acre per application. The maximum number of broadcast applications is limited to 2 per year with a minimum of 30 days between applications. The
maximum seasonal rate is 8.0 pints of product per acre per year, excluding spot treatments.
Agricultural Use Requirements (cont.) Limitations on spot treatments for all use sites:
Spot treatment is defined as a treatment area no greater than 1,000 sq.ft. per acre. The maximum application rate is 1.5 fl.oz. per 1,000 sq.ft. per application. The maximum number of spot treatments is
limited to 2 per year with a minimum of 30 days between applications.
In closely-mowed bentgrass (putting and bowling greens) apply at a maximum rate of 1 fluid ounce of product per 1,500 square feet, preferably in May or mid-August through September. Slight turf yellowing will disappear after about one week.
NOTE: Care should be taken to avoid overdosing bentgrass or injury may result. High spray volumes (i.e., 1 fluid ounce of product in 5 gallons of water per 1,500 square feet) will aid in obtaining uniform coverage. If hand-operated sprayers are used, it is preferable to use a single nozzle sprayer rather than a multiple nozzle boom. Sweeping movements with a multiple nozzle boom will result in heavy local overapplication and subsequent turf discoloration or injury.

Will this kill my roses if it gets on them?
Gordons Trimec Encore Broadleaf Herbicide is only labeled for use on turfgrasses, it is not for use on or around ornamentals as it can injure them. For these areas you should hand pull or very carefully spot treat with a non selective herbicide avoiding any contact with desirables.
