    Q
    My local Ag Extension agent recommended Pendulum 2G to prevent crabgass and other weeds.
    I will apply it with a John Deere broadcast spreader, model LPBS36JD, towed behind my lawn Tractor. Can you tell me the proper application rate, lbs per 1000 sq ft?
    A
    The application rate for the Pendulum 2G when treating for crabgrass is roughly 75 pounds per acre. This comes out to roughly 1.70 pounds per 1000 sq/ft.

    Q
    What setting should I use on my Scott's Edgeguard DLX spreader when using Pendulum 2G?
    A

    We don't carry that particular model spreader, so we are not sure what the exact settings would be.  The easiest way to determine the correct setting for you needs is outlined below:

    If you need to use 3.6lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft you would  add 3.6 lb of product to spreader, start with a medium setting, then apply product to a 20 x 50 ft area (1,000 sq ft).  If you have product left, your setting is too low.  If you run out of product, your setting is too high.

    Q
    Safety to people and pets
    Is Pendulum safe for people and pets to walk on?
    A
    Pendulum 2G is a granular that has to be applied using a spreader and then watered in to activate the granules. Be sure to keep children and pets out of the area while the application is being performed and once the granules have been watered in and has had a chance to dry completely, the Pendulum 2G is completely safe for children and pets.

    A

    We would need more information in order to answer your question efficiently.

    Q
    When to apply in south Louisiana? Square foot coverage per bag?
    A
    When you apply Pendulum will depend on the type of weed you are trying to prevent. Pendulum 2G is a preemergent herbicide and it must be applied before the weeds germinate. You can call your local cooperative extension office to seek more information on the germination times in your region. 40 lbs can treat just under 1/2 an acre when used at the 100 lbs per acre usage rate. Please take a few minutes to read the Pendulum 2G product label to find the usage rate that is right for your needs.

    Q
    What is the best time to apply Pendulum 2G Granular Herbicide in Virginia?
    I live in Northern Virginia. When is the best time to apply this product for the best results?
    A

    Most weeds begin germinating when the soil temperature is 55 - 60 degrees, so it is best for you to apply this when the soil temperature average is 50 degrees.  We would recommend contacting the master gardener at your local county extension office as they will be able to give you an exact time frame for applying this product in your area.

  • Asked by Vicky from Burnet, Tx
    02/06/2021
    Q
    Will Pendulum 2G work as pre-emergent against both soft and hard grassburs?
    Live in Lake Buchannan Area in Texas (Central). I don't know the name of the weeds I am trying to kill, but they are both bur type plants. One is very hard and painful, the other bur is just clingy. Will Pendulum work for both?
    A

    Pendulum 2G can be applied in early spring to prevent field sandbur, and it can be applied in the late summer/early fall to prevent lawn burweed. Many areas of Texas have had a more mild winter than usual this year, so a lot of field sandbur has been behaving more like a perennial than an annual. In this case, you may need a combination of pre-emergents and post-emergents to get satisfactory control. Keep in mind, too, that the best defense against sandbur is healthy, thick turfgrass.

    Q
    Can you apply pendulum 2G in an area where tomatoes are growing?
    A
    We would not recommend to apply Pendulum 2G - 40 lb. bag where tomatoes are growing. Pendulum 2G - 40 lb. bag is a preemergent and therefore will be soaked into the soil. Please check out Vegetable & Ornamental Weeder It’s a pre-emergent specifically designed for those areas without harming the vegetation.

  • Asked by Harcharn from Glendale Heights, Il
    02/19/2017
    Q
    What is good time for IL to apply Pendulum 2G - 40 lb?
    Is it safe for flower beds and tomatoes. What is good time to spread. I have 4000 sq feet yard, how much I need the product and how often it must be repeated. There are lots of weeds in flower beds and tomato beds. Is it safe applying there too.? And do I need to spread fertilizers the same time or some time later?
    A

    Application timing of Pendulum 2G - 40 lb. will vary by region and the best person to ask about application timing is your local master gardener who works at your local cooperative extension office.  This is a pre-emergent product only and will not kill any weeds that are actively growing, it only prevents them from emerging. It cannot be used around anything edible but can be used in lawns and ornamental landscapes, how much you use depends on the type of grass you are applying it to and the program you are using, generally pre-emergents are applied 2 to 3 times per year.  40 lbs can treat just under 1/2 an acre when used at the 100 lbs per acre usage rate. Please take a few minutes to read the Pendulum 2G product label to find the usage rate and program that is right for your needs.

    Q
    Can I use Pendulum on SeaShore Paspallum grass? If so, how much do I apply to around 6500 sq ft of lawn?
    A
    We are unfamiliar with SeaShore Paspalum grass and it is not listed on the Pendulum 2G product label, so we will not be able to offer much advice. Pendulum 2G, when applied according to the product label, will not usually effect any well established lawns because it is a pre-emergent herbicide. We do recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and seek advice from the master gardener before selecting an herbicide for your lawn to be sure you are getting the correct product.
