Why did Drive XLR8 work on my crabgrass, but not the clover?

I use the product with MSO as directed. My lawn is small so I only used 1 oz. for 700sq. ft. instead of the 1.45oz for 1000 sq. ft.


Drive XLR8 Herbicide Crabgrass Killer should be effective on white, hop, and red clovers at the labeled rate. If the clover is a different variety, or if it one of this varieties but the plants are no longer actively growing, then you will see limited results. You may need a second application or to wait until the weeds are growing again to get good results from the herbicide. We recommend waiting at least 10-14 days to see results from post-emergent herbicides. If you are still not seeing desirable results, then I would consider a more true broadleaf herbicide such as Fertilome Weed Free Zone.
