A label for 2,4-D
LAWNS, GOLF COURSES, CEMETERIES, PARKS, AND SIMILAR
Apply 3 pints per acre ( 6 1/2 tsp. per 1000 sq. ft.) in sufficient water to give
good coverage (usually between 3 to 5 gals water per 1,000 sq. ft.) In-
crease this to 4 pints per acre (3 Tablespoons per 1000 sq. ft.) if hard to kill
weeds (Spurge) are present. Do not apply to newly seeded lawns until
grasses become well established. Injury may result if applied to Bentgrass,
St. Augustinegrass, Carpetgrass, Centipedegrass, Dichondra, and Clovers.
After weeds have died remove all dead vegetation. Prepare the seed bed
by addition of top soil, peat moss or other soil amendments. Work into the
topsoil. Wait 2 weeks then seed the area at 1 1 /2 times the recommended
seeding rate. Keep soil moist through the first cutting.
The Maximum number of broadcast applications per treatment site is 2 per
