    Suppose to be rain fast in 1 hour. I would let sit for atleast a day before mowing.

    Why would you be applying Fusilade II to a lawn? From what I understand, it kills most all grasses.

    Fusilade II is used for the suppression and/or control of Common Bermudagrass, Hybrid Bermudagrass and other grass
    weeds in Zoysia and Tall Fescue. However, -- it is not for use on home lawns.

    I have used it where appropriate to control bermuda grass in fescue -- works well -- in cooler temps only -- will burn fescue easily.

    Proabbly not much call for it in Dallas

    Be damn careful when appling it. I would suggest using less than label rate...maybe even 1/2 label rate. I bought some and applied to my lawn. It looks as it completely killed all my fescue, although there are small signs of life throughout the infected areas. Also, when spraying, just spray a little. Good thing I tried this on my lawn first. I honestly think it will recover next spring or maybe this fall. I am still going to overseed the crap out of it this fall.

    Good luck
