What are the chances of turf damage if too much spreader sticker is applied?

How much?
I think unless you saturated the ground the crown would not die, if its hot out you might see some damage but I would think it would bounce back fine. IMO

I attended a seminar a few years ago and they showed pictures weeds and grass sprayed with 3oz 3way with 1ounce of sticker. 3oz 3way with 2oz sticker, and 3oz 3way with 3oz sticker and the 2oz sticker stressed the grass out and the 3oz sticker killed the grass. Obviously there was no damage done with the proper amount of sticker.

So to answer your question if too much is applied with a selective herbicide you can damage the grass, especially if temperatures are high.

Wouldn't it be more fair to say it dependes on the product that you are uaing. They are not all the same. If you were using a spreader / sticker could you have been using a herbicide to. that could have had something to do with it or hot temp

Spreader sticker is based on volume of water used and applied not based on how well you want it to stick to the weed. Too much will cause phytotoxicity.

I have never had a problem using a nonionic. I don't measure either, just a light 'glug' in the PG tank and away I go.

The other thing is maybe your seeing some of the grass stressed from the herbicide period, and nothing to do with the sticker.
