MODE OF ACTION
Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer is a meristematic inhibitor that interferes with the plant cellular division or mitosis and cell elongation in the growing points of shoots and roots of susceptible weeds. When susceptible weeds germinate in the treated area, they contact the herbicide and both shoot and root growth stops. Translocation of the herbicide within the plant is limited. Affected weeds die shortly after growth is stopped, usually before emergence from the soil.
Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer will not control established weeds. Therefore, areas to be treated should be free of established weeds at the time of treatment, or use Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer together with herbicides registered for postemergence use in managed turf sites, landscape ornamentals and in other noncropland areas. Consult the labels of those herbicides for suggested treatments, rates to be used and precautions or restrictions for use in these areas. The efficacy of Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer will be best if the application is followed by one-half inch of rainfall or its equivalent in sprinkler irrigation. If Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer is not activated by rainfall or irrigation within 30 days, weed control may be erratic.
When applied according to label directions and under normal growing conditions, Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer or Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer tank-mix combinations will not cause crop injury. Over-application can cause crop stand loss, crop injury, or soil residues. Uneven application can decrease weed control or cause crop injury.
Seedling diseases, cold weather, excessive moisture, high soil pH, high soil salt concentration, or drought can weaken seedlings and plants, and increase the possibility of plant damage from Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer.
Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer may be applied in a tank mix or a sequential application with other herbicides registered for use in a given crop. Refer to the companion label for weeds controlled in addition to Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer alone.
When using tank mixtures or sequential applications with Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer, always read the companion product label(s) to determine the specific use rates by soil types, weed species, and weed or crop growth stage. In addition, follow all precautions and restrictions including state and local use restrictions that may apply to specific products. Always follow the most restrictive label.

How much solution of Sandbur & Crabgrass Preventer is added per gallon of water
How much water you will use to apply a pre-emergent herbicide like this one is not as important as using the correct amount of herbicide. This is going to be watered into the soil to be activated as well.
Depending on your turf type, you can use 1.1 to 1.6 fl oz per 1000 sq ft you are treating for most applications.
