ORNAMENTAL LAWNS AND TURF
Apply this product at the rate of 2 to 3 pints in 20 to 240 gallons of water per acre (o.75 to 1.1 fluid ounces in 0.5 to 5.5 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet) to control weeds growing in turf planted to Bluegrass, Fescue, Ryegrass, Bentgrass (excluding golf course greens and Bentgrass tees), Bahia, Bermudagrass and Zoysia.
This product is intended for use on sod farms. This herbicide provides selective broadleaf control in warm season and cool season turfgrass established for commercial sod production.
Apply this herbicide to broadleaf weeds that are actively growing. Follow-up applications may be required for dense infestations of perennial and biennial weeds. Do not apply this product to St. Augustinegrass.
The application of this herbicide to grass seedlings is not recommended until after the second mowing.
The application of this product to newly sodded, sprigged, or plugged grasses should be delayed until 3 to 4 weeks after the sodding, sprigging, or plugging operations. Also, applications to dormant Bermudagrass, dormant Zoysiagrass and dormant Bahiagrass are suggested.
Roadsides (including aprons and guardrails) and rights-of-way: For control of broadleaf weeds, mix at a rate of 2 to 5 pints of this product per acre in adequate water to thoroughly saturate all weeds with spray mixture. this may require a spray volume of 50 to 300 gallons of water per acre. Apply any time between the time when plants come into full leaf (spring) to when the plants begin to go dormant. Best results are obtained when weeds are young and actively growing. Do not cut weeds until herbicide has translocated throughout the plant causing root death. For small broadleaf weeds, use the lower rate. Heavy, dense stands require a higher rate with high water volume. For small (spot) applications with small tank sprayers, apply at the rate of 2-1/4 ounces of this product per gallon of water and spray to thoroughly wet all foliage, but do not exceed 5 pints of product per acre per application.
For control of woody plants: Apply to both stems and foliage any time from the time foliage is completely matured until the time plants start to go dormant. All leaves, stems, and suckers must be completely wet to the ground line for effective control. Regrowth may be anticipated on the more resistant species. Add 4 to 5 pints of this product per acre in adequate water to thoroughly saturate all weeds with the spray mixture. This may require a spray volume of 200 to 600 gallons of water per acre depending upon the height and thickness of the brush. Mix thoroughly before spraying.
