For summer annual weeds, can be used in the spring, up to June 1st.

Overall Comments: The following table lists preemergence (PRE) and post-emergence (POST) herbicides for control of broadleaf weeds. Several POST herbicides are available that selectively control established broadleaf weeds in established lawns. Established broadleaf weeds can be controlled with POST herbicide options. For optimum control, application(s) need to be timed early in the life cycle of sum mer and winter an nuals. Established perenn ials (e.g. wild onion), may require repeat application(s).

Note: For summer annual broadleaf weeds, PRE herbicides for summer annual grasses may provide limited (product dependent) PRE activity towards summer annual broadleaf weeds (refer to weed susceptibility table).

  • POST herbicides for broadleaf weeds do not require activation by rain or irrigation.
  • If lawn is under drought stress, irrigate or wait for a rain to cause weeds to resume active growth.
  • Do not apply if rain is forecast.
  • Ensure uniform application and do not overlap spray pattern.

PRECAUTIONS: Products containing "phenoxy" herbicides, such as 2,4-D, MCPP and dicamba, can cause injury to or loss of desired plants, shrubs and trees. Injury can result from:

  1. Phenoxy herbicides can release vapors from treated areas into the air and drift. Application of products containing these herbicides must be applied when the air temperature is less than 85 F.
  2. Application of products containing these herbicides combined with other herbicides for non-selective weed control. Read the product label to be sure that the product is intended for use on lawns.
  3. Application underneath or around desired vegetation.
  4. Application or over-application to areas of the lawn where roots of desired vegetation are established.
  5. Application when air is not still.
  6. Use of the same sprayer to make later application of fungicides or insecticides to desired vegetation. Removal of phenoxy herbicide residues from the sprayer after application is very difficult. Thus, an individual sprayer should be designated for application of herbicides. A second sprayer shou ld be used for application of other pesticides.

Fertilizer/ Herbicide Combinations: Granular fertilizer products pre-mixed with phenoxy herbicides are readily available. However, postemergence control may be less than desirable when applied in granular form. For optimum activity and dollar value, these herbicides need to be applied POST (alone, not mixed with fertilizer) as liquids (contacting the foliage).
