Usually one does not spray for broadleaf until later in the season and all of the Spring Touchup Seeding is complete...
This late in the game I would say it does not matter if you seed in 10 days or 2 weeks,,, unless you have shade and water on your side...
Once your weeds are dead and dried, hit the area with a garden weasel, irrigate and seed(when the soil dries) with the weasel again, preferably working in a bit of compost at the same time...
Read closer Think the OP wanted do a burndown to reseed a area. He didn't need to mix 2-4d with the gly unless he was spraying tall weeds and wanted to spike his mix. If spraying tall weeds with gly mix it stronger its a different mix if you are spraying 6'' of growth

The comment you made about broadleaf spraying. What are you talking about??

The OP ask a simple question. You went somewhere else with the answer. Stay on track
