Apply prior to germination of weed grasses in the spring. Precise time of application for a specific area will vary due to climate and individual cultural practices. Generally, application during February or March will give best results. Control can be expected by applications up to the time that Forsythias bloom in Spring. If in doubt, check with your Agricultural Extension Service. For newly seeded areas, apply as the last step before watering.
For best results, this product must be applied without skips or misses. Determine the correct amount for your lawn area. For freshly seeded grass apply at the rate of 2.6 - 3.3 LBS per 1,000 SQ FT. For established turf apply at 5.2 - 6.6 LBS per 1,000 SQ FT. The best results are obtained by using the two-step procedure at the recommended half rate settings. Apply half the required amount in one direction and the other half at right angles to the first application. This procedure will minimize the chances of color streaking and erratic crabgrass control. Use the suggested spreader settings as a guide, being sure to check the application rate at the start of each application. At least 1/2" of water must be provided by rainfall or watering within 3 days of treatment in order to carry the chemical into the root zone of germinating weeds.
See Label for complete application instructions.
