Monterey Crab-E-Rad Plus is an post-emergent herbicide that controls crabgrass, dandelion, clover, henbit, plantains, wild onion and over 100 different broadleaf weeds. It should be applied after the weeds are present, and can be used in both cool and warm seasons. It is rainproof in hours and won't wash away.
For use in California: Biotypes of large and smooth crabgrass in California have shown varied response to this product. If control failure occurs following a full or split application, DO NOT reapply this product. Change to a herbicide with a different mode of action.
This product combines three proven active ingredients [Quinclorac, 2,4-D, and Dicamba] to provide broad spectrum control of grassy and broadleaf weeds. This herbicide is absorbed by foliage and roots of weeds and translocated throughout the plant.
Make no more than 2 applications per year. For ornamental lawns and turf, apply no more than 0.5 oz. ae 2,4-D per 1,000 sq. ft. per application and no more than 1.0 oz. ae 2,4-D per 1,000 sq. ft. per year, excluding spot treatments.
I have retired from a lawn business and never had a post emergence crabgrass control at that time. I applied Crab-E- plus with great results. it did take several weeks but it looked like maybe it wouldn't. after several mowing, it was gone and so far months later, no sign of it. we have accepted it as our treatment for crab grass, nut sewage as well for other weeds for our hoa lawns. give it time.
It looked like it was going to work. The crab grass started to turn brown but it just slowed it down then its all back. I followed the instructions on the label. I spent hard earned money for this stuff that did not work. A refund should be in order from DoMyOwn...........
