    What he means is
    Those of us that are licensed to apply pesticides know that we are suppose to follow the label .
    It's the law .
    We all know what the correct amount is because we read and follow the label .
    We have to know the label in it's entirity

    Thats what you need to do .

    What you are asking is for us to read it and tell you what it says

    Please , read the label your self so you will know .

    Well, did the weeds die ?

    Never happened to me .

    Did you soak the ground with it ?

    Did you need a surfactant ?

    Go to lesco and buy momentum and mix 1.5 onces per gallon. weeds die and the grass stays green.

    Did the label say 4 oz in 2-3 gallons of water for 1000/sq. ft.? Did you apply to less than that? If so, the burn was because you OD'd and hurt the grass. You'll need to calibrate so you know how much you are spraying at any given speed and pattern width. This is a pretty easy thing to do. If you need help, let me know. Neal

    The weeds died a quick and painless death. The grass, on the other hand, suffered needlessly. Grass did not die out but does look abused. I guess i put it on thick. I have always used Scotts products but they have never worked. Just thought I would try a liquid product. I am looking into a liquid fertilizer. Anyone with any ideas/ The nearest lesco dealer is 90 miles away. Not practical.
