    depends on what herbi,
    something like drive, i believe can be applied
    at 30 days after germination on most turf types
    what are you targeting?

    Usually you can spray after three mowings. But I have seen new grass sprayed much earlier, than the label allows--usually no damage. Some products--like Drive and Quicksilver claim to be fairly safe on new grass. You will get blamed for whatever goes wrong--best to wait until its safe.
