RESIDENTIAL AND NONRESIDENTIAL TURFGRASSES - WEED CONTROL - POSTEMERGENCE

General Information

General Information

Drive 75 DF herbicide may be applied postemergence to residential and nonresidential turfgrasses for the control of many broadleaf and grass weeds. Examples of such sites include, but are not limited to: grounds or lawns around residential and commercial establishments, multi-family dwellings, military and other institutions, parks, airports, roadsides, schools, picnic grounds, athletic fields, houses of worship, cemeteries, golf courses and sod farms.

Drive 75 DF herbicide is absorbed by foliage and roots and translocated throughout the plant. The control symptoms exhibited by broadleaf weeds include leaf and stem curl or twisting, and chlorosis. Susceptible grasses demonstrate stunting, chlorosis, and gradual reddening followed by necrosis and death.

General Restrictions and Limitations

- DO NOT apply more than 2 pounds of Drive 75 DF herbicide per acre (or 0.73 ounces per 1,000 square feet) in one year.

- DO NOT apply to golf course collars or greens

- DO NOT apply to fine fescue unless it is part of a seed blend.

- DO NOT apply to bahiagrass, carpetgrass, St. Augustinegrass, centipedegrass, dichondra, or lawns or turf where desirable clovers are present.

- DO NOT apply within 4 weeks after seedling emergence of Kentucky bluegrass, creeping bentgrass, fine fescue blends and perennial ryegrass.

- DO NOT apply to exposed feeder roots of trees or ornamentals. Be particularly careful within the drip line of trees and other ornamental species.

- DO NOT apply into any ornamental bed.

- DO NOT use clippings as mulch or compost around flowers, ornamentals, trees, or in vegetable gardens.

- Apply when wind speed is less than 10 mph as drift may cause damage or death of non-target area vegetation. DO NOT apply when conditions favor drift from target area.

- Use a lawn type sprayer with coarse spray as wind drift is less likely.

- Avoid mist and spray onto vegetables, flowers, ornamentals, shrubs, trees, and other desirable plants, especially plants belonging to the Solanaceae family such as tomatoes, eggplants, and bell peppers.

- DO NOT pour spray solutions near these plants.

-DO NOT apply through any type of irrigation system.

- DO NOT use to formulate or reformulate any other pesticide product which is not registered by EPA.

-For best results, weeds should not be under stress from lack of water, excessive water, low fertility, mowing shock, excessive hot or cold temperatures, or injury from other herbicide applications.
