Quali-Pro Dithiopyr 2EW is a high-performing professionally formulated herbicide that provides pre-emergent control of grassy and broadleaf weeds such as crabgrass, dallisgrass, foxtail, sandbur, dandelion, oxalis, spurge, and other listed weeds. It also provides early post-emergent crabgrass control. It is most effective when applied before germination and activated by at least 1/2 inch of rain or irrigation. This product has a low odor and blooms quickly when diluted, even in cold water. Its viscosity remains stable, even in low temperatures. Recommended for use in areas such as established lawns, ornamentals, sports turfs, and commercial sod farms (see label for complete list). Compatible for tank mixing with some liquid fertilizers and other pesticides.
For Turfgrass: Use Dithiopyr 2EW on seeded, sodded, or sprigged lawns, ornamental turfgrass and unimproved turfgrass that are well-established. Newly established turf must have developed a good root system and a uniform stand, and have received at least two mowings following seeding or sprigging before making the first application of this product. Note precautions below for sodding. Use of this product on turf that is not well- established, or has been weakened by weather, pest, disease, chemical, mechanical or other related stress, may result in turf injury.
Dithiopyr 2EW will prevent the germination of annual bluegrass. Dithiopyr 2EW will not affect established annual bluegrass. If maintenance of annual bluegrass is desired, using this product during the time of annual bluegrass germination is not recommended. In the states of AZ, CA, NV, OR, WA, NM, ID, MT and UT, Dithiopyr 2EW may contribute to the thinning or stand reduction in established stands of annual bluegrass.
To avoid turfgrass injury, do not apply to newly set sod until the sod has rooted and exposed edges have filled in.
For best results, cultural practices that disturb the soil, such as verticutting and core-, spike-, or hydro- aerification, should be done before applying this product.
