For knitting of sod and maximum germination of cool-season grasses from seed or establishment of warm-season grasses from sprigs and/or seed. A second application at the same rates is recommended in 14 days.
Soil applications of LAUNCH before or at seeding or sprigging are recommended. LAUNCH can be applied over-the-top of newly installed sod.
Irrigation or rainfall (0.25-0.50 inches of water) within 24 hours after planting or sodding operations will enhance the performance of LAUNCH.
