CREEPING BENTGRASS

General Information

For use on lawns, ornamental turf (excluding golf course putting greens), and ornamental trees, vines, and plants only. Not for use on plants being grown for sale or other commercial use, for commercial seed production, or for research purposes. For use on plants intended for aesthetic purposes or climatic modification and being grown in ornamental gardens or parks, or on golf courses or lawns and grounds.

Not for use on turf being grown for sale or other commercial use as sod, or for commercial seed production, or for research purposes. This product is a selective pre-emergence herbicide that provides residual control of many grass and broadleaf weeds in established lawns and ornamental turf (excluding golf course putting greens), landscape ornamentals and established perennials and wildflower plantings. It controls susceptible weeds by inhibiting weed seeds, germination and root development. When used according to directions, it will control; barnyardgrass; bluegrass; annual (Poa annua); carpetweed; chickweed, common; chickweed, mouseear (from seed); crabgrass (large, smooth); crowfootgrass; cupgrass, woolly; foxtails, annual; goosegrass1; henbit; itchgrass; johnsongrass (from seed); junglerice; knotweed; kochia; lambsquarter, common; lovegrass; panicum (Texas, fall, browntop); pigweed; purslane, common; pusley, Florida; rescuegrass3, shepherd’s purse2, signalgrass, broadleaf; speedwell, Persian; sprangletop; spurge, prostrate; witchgrass; woodsorrel, yellow (from seed).

1. In many areas a single application of 5.2 to 11.9 pounds/1,000 square feet (225 to 518 pounds/acre) will control goosegrass. However, under heavy goosegrass pressure and/or an extended growing season, most effective weed control may be obtained with an initial application of 5.2 to 7.9 pounds/1,000 square feet (225 to 345 pounds/acre), followed after 60 to 90 days by a second application at doses that would not exceed the maximum annual rate (see “Minimum and Maximum Application Rate by Turfgrass Species” table in the Rates of Application section of the label).

2. For this weed, apply in late summer, fall or winter prior to germination.

3. Suppresstion only.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

WHEN TO APPLY TO ESTABLISHED TURF: This product must be applied prior to germination of weed seeds, as it will not control established weeds.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS: Apply this product uniformly, using a suitable spreader that has been properly calibrated. Most effective weed control will be obtained when this product is activated by at least 0.5 inch of rainfall or irrigation, or with shallow (1-2 inches) incorporation, prior to weed seed germination and within 14 days application.

USE PRECAUTIONS: The following precautions apply to the use of this product in turf grasses and lawns. Application of this product may thin emerged annual bluegrass and newly-overseeded grasses. Do not apply to overseeded turf within 60 days after seeding or until after the second moving, whichever is longer. Injury to desireable seedlings is likely if this product is applied before seedling secondary roots are in the second inch of soil (not thatch plus soil). Do not apply newly-set sod until the following year. Application to turf stressed by drought, low fertility, or pest damage may result in turf injury. Disturbing the herbicide barrier with cultural practices (such as core aeration) may result in reduced weed control. Do not apply to putting greens or areas where dichondra, colonial bentgrass, velvet bentgrass or annual bluegrass (Poa annua) are desirable species. Do not apply through any type of irrigations system. Do not apply aerially. Do not graze or feed livestock forage cut from treated areas.

This product may be applied as a single application or in sequential applications to control weeds germinating throughout the year. Sequential applications may be made so long as the total amount of product applied does not exceed the maximum annual application rates recommended for each turf species. The length of time of residual weed control provided by this product is related to the rate applied. Use the higher rates listed for longer periods of weed control.

WHEN TO OVERSEED AFTER APPLICATION: This product will inhibit germination of turf seed if overseeded too soon after application. Follow rates and intervals in table for best overseedling/reseeding results.
