This makes no sense to me. I just picked 2-2.5gal jugs of Q4 last week. Both labels say 4 weeks on them. Website says 1 week. WTF. I just got done spraying 3 acres with Drive/speedzone mix so I can reseed this month. Would of used my Q4 instead of mixing that.

Anybody try reseeding a test area after 1 week to see what happens? Seems like it wouldn't take too much time to find out.

Are you guys using a sticker with q4? I sprayed with chem stick and results were not very good? I have had great succes with drive and methylated seed oil...I don't understand why chemicals don't come pre mixed with the proper sticker? Round up is the only one I know of....back to the original question I would think 1 week would be plenty of time especially when using a Powerseedeer or aerator

Sounds like the jugs you bought were old and had been sitting on the shelf for sometime. Kind of like the problem I ran into with Solitaire that listed Dallisgrass on the label. But I called the company and they said that was a two-year-old label at least. Problem is these companies change their labels and no one ever knows about it.

Anyways, I was on the PBI Gordon website and was looking at the label. I think I was doing that because it's easier to read than doing it on my phone. I was looking at reseeding timeframes and it says ONE (1) week! I thought to myself, what in the world is up with that? So, I called PBI Gordon and the guy confirmed that in fact it is 1 week. I said I wanted to know why it's always been 4 and now it says 1. He said he would contact the research and development department and call me back.

Do you think this is true or did somone make a mistake? None of the AI's have changed......just wondering if anyone else noticed this or just me?
What app are you using to save the labels onto your phone... I have a droid and I believe this to be a great way to always have them on me... How are you going about this? Thank you

I dowload the label pdf from the makers website to my desktop. I then attach it to an email and email myself the pdf. I then open it and save it to iBooks on my phone.

That is for the Older Q4. He is talking about the Q4 Plus. That does say 1 week on the PBI Gordon website.

I use the Dropbox app to store all my labels on PDF. Works perfectly just download on your phone or put in to Dropbox folder from your desktop
