    I put down dimension & momentum yesterday afternoon and then it rained this morning. Will the momentum still have a chance of killing the chickweed?

    Chickweed is on the dimension label preemergently if memory serves, so if it hasn't germinated in NJ you're all set. The momentum will be restricted in its efficacy with the rainfall - downpour, all gone, drizzle, well, we'll see.

    Gotta watch the forecast, you know. $$$ at stake.

    Unfortunately, the chickweed and dandelions are in full bloom. Should I put down another application of momentum immediately or wait for a week or 2?

    Momentum should be rainfast within 4 hours. I do not stop spraying triplett until it starts raining. I might have to redo one lawn then. I would wait before respraying. Just see what the results are.

    I didn't use any sticker when I put it out. How fast should I see the results with momentum? Sorry for all the questions, but never used the product before.

    One more thing to mention...the 3 lawns I did on Friday are new customers and I want to make sure they are impressed with my fertilizer plan so I get the repeat business next year.

    Sounds to me like you are doing "weed control" not fertilizer...... :cool2:

    I could be mistaken if you are applying both in a combo application ?

    Actually doing both with this treatment. Dimension is 19-0-6, which should give the needed nitrogen. Momentum was for the broad leaf weed control. My primary question is will the momentum be effective enough if it got wet after less than 10 hours.
