    I have a customer who wants her son to spray her lawn with 2-4-D to get rid of weeds, she has a sprinkler and I need to know when I need to seed fescue.
    She wont deal with the one licensed person in town and I cant take the test yet.

    I dont have my label to my tri-mec in front of me-but I think it said 3-4 weeks after application before you can seed,and wait 4 mowings on any new seedlings before application-or they may be killed too.Im not 100%,about 98% positive-I read the label last week.
