    I generally wait 24 hours or more depending on the pesticide. I know Confront and Manage recommend 3 days before and after spraying to mow.

    Pretty broad question there. For example lotsa broadleaf weed kiilers work best on fresh growth and moderate temps. so in that instance you would cut first and apply after fresh growth has begun. Like I said it's a broad question and answers vary with what you're applying.
