LAWN AND ORNAMENTAL TURF

General Information

PREPARATION OF SPRAY AND APPLICATION: Recommended quantities of this product should be added to water in the spray tank at time of application. Agitate or stir to assure a good mixture and continue some agitation during application. The quantity of spray solution to make up will depend upon the equipment to be used. When using a low volume sprayer, the proper dosage should be applied in at least 15 gallons of water per acre, although as little as 5 to 10 gallons per acre have been used successfully in certain instances. When using a high pressure sprayer, apply in 150 to 200 gallons of water per acre. For aerial application, apply in 1 to 5 gallons of water per acre. Always use the proper amount of 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer per unit area regardless of the quantity of water.

Do not apply with hollow cone-type insecticide or other nozzles that produce fine spray droplets. Drift from aerial or ground application may be reduced by: (1) applying as near to the target as possible in order to obtain coverage; (2) by increasing the volume of spray mix per acre; (3) by decreasing the pounds of pressure at the nozzle tips; (4) by using nozzles which produce a coarse spray pattern; and (5) by not applying when wind is blowing toward susceptible crops or valuable plants.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

LAWN AND ORNAMENTAL TURF: Use 1 to 3 pints of 2,4-D Amine Weed Killer in enough water to give good coverage to one acre on established stands of perennial grasses. Do not use on creeping grasses such as Bent except for spot spraying. Newly seeded turf should not be treated until after the second mowing and the lower dosage rate should be used. Reseeding of lawns should be delayed following treatment. With spring application, reseed in the fall; with fall application, reseed in the spring. Legumes are usually damaged or killed, therefore, do not treat areas where the legumes are desired. Deep-rooted perennial weeds such as bindweed and Canada thistle may require repeated applications. The maximum number of broadcast applications per treatment site is 2 per year.

Resistant Weeds in Lawn and Ornamental Turf (Spot Treatment): To control certain broadleaf weeds, such as jimsonweed, prickly lettuce, mallow, purslane, shepherdspurse, smartweed, henbit, buttercup, wild carrot, docks, pokeweed, common mullein and sheep sorrel usually require a considerably higher dosage rate. These resistant weeds usually may be controlled in localized areas or spots by applying 1 to 1 1/4 tablespoons per gallon of water when the plants are young and growing vigorously.

THIS HIGH DOSAGE RATE CANNOT BE USED WITHOUT CAUSING SEVERE INJURY, AND CONSEQUENTLY, ITS USE MUST BE EXCLUSIVELY FOR SPOT TREATMENT WHERE SUCH INJURY CAN BE TOLERATED.

Repeated treatments, if new weed growth occurs, may be necessary to maintain control.
