sounds like it is a pre-emergenct control that works on both grasses and broadleaves.

yes it is suspose to be more stable in the soil and not leach It is pricy but a little goes along way. In solution it runs about a $1.40 a gallon / 1000 sq ft., Mixing might be a problem in a can sprayer, 0.1 (one tenth) oz per gallon.

You need a teeny tiny measuring bucket. A tenth ounce is about 3 mililiters.
