Cheetah® Pro non-selective, post-emergence herbicide provides fast, effective control of the toughest broadleaf and grass weed challenges, including those resistant to glyphosate and multiple herbicide classes. Its novel mode of action works quickly to control undesirable plant vegetation around ornamental trees, shrubs, and potted plants, as well as landscape trim and natural areas. Cheetah Pro also has minimal soil residual, which makes it an effective pre-plant treatment for turf, ornamentals, and greenhouses. When applied to dormant Bermudagrass or Bahiagrass, Cheetah Pro will provide control or suppression of many winter annual weeds, including annual bluegrass.

use summary

For spot or directed spray applications by backpack sprayers, mix Cheetah® Pro at 0.5 to 2.0 fl oz (0.009 to 0.036 lb ai) per gal of water. Larger and more difficult to control weeds require a higher use rate. When using the per gal rate, calibrate sprayers to deliver 1 gal of spray solution per 500 to 1,000 sq ft. Thorough spray coverage of weeds is necessary to maximize weed control. Spray coverage needs to be uniform, but do not spray to the point of runoff. Thoroughly clean the sprayer following use. Do not make spot or directed spray applications to desired plant foliage or stems as injury may occur.


MAXIMUM RATE – ANNUAL: Do not apply more than 82 fl oz/A/year (1.5 lb ai/A/year).

MAXIMUM RATE – SINGLE APPLICATION: Do not apply more than 82 fl oz/A per single application (1.5 lb. ai/A/application).

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS PER YEARDo not apply more than a total of 3 broadcast applications per year when using reduced application rates (not to exceed a maximum of 1.5 lb ai/A/year).


FOR TRIM AND EDGE: Cheetah Pro may be used to trim and edge around trees, buildings, roads and potted plants prior to planting landscape ornamentals.

FOR DORMANT BERMUDAGRASS AND/OR BAHIAGRASS*: Treat with 56 to 82 fl oz/A only when residential lawns are fully dormant in late fall or winter and prior to spring green-up. Spot treatments or broadcast applications of Cheetah Pro to non-dormant turfgrass may result in injury or delayed green-up. Avoid high volume and spot applications where spray volume exceeds 80 gal/A or injury or delayed green-up may occur. Applications to residential lawns are limited to spot treatments only. The maximum application rate must not exceed 4 fl oz/gal of water/1,000 sq ft (corresponding to a rate of 0.0312 lb ai/100 sq ft). Applications for renovating Bermudagrass lawns must be conducted when the weather is cool and Bermudagrass is dormant.
