Intrro for turfgrass?

Anyone used it on turf grasses? The label does not list effects to any major turf grass types.

called Alachlor--LASSO........45.0%.........secondary soybean herbicide
Restricted Agricultural Herbicide........known to cause tumor's....carcinogenetic.
Don't think I will be using this stuff on commercial and residential customers.
It is strictly labeled for agriculture................why do we want to use it on homeowner and pedestrian commercial areas. This is liability loaded!!!

Alachlor also does not last very long and is a severe root pruner. You are better off sticking with Barricade or Dimension. I know alachlor will control yellow nutsedge preemergent, but that is not worth the hazard.
