APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS

Ornamental Lawns and Turf
Apply 2 to 3 pints of Escalade® 2 in 20 to 240 gallons of water per acre (0.75 to 1.1 fluid ounces in 0.5 to 5.5 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet) to control weeds growing in turf planted to bluegrass, fescue, ryegrass, bentgrass (excluding golf course greens and tees), bahia, bermudagrass and zoysia.

On closely mowed golf course fairway bentgrass, apply this product at a maximum rate of 2 pints in 20 to 240 gallons of water per acre (0.75 fluid ounces in 0.5 to 5.5 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet). During conditions which promote turf stress use lower rates, 1 to 1.5 pints in 20 to 240 gallons of water per acre (0.36 to 0.55 fluid ounces in 0.3 to 5.5 gallons per 1,000 square feet). Slight turf yellowing will disappear after one week. To minimize grass injury, a second application should not be made for at least 4 weeks. Do not use on golf course greens or tees.

Sod Farms
For bluegrass, ryegrass and fescue, apply 2 to 3 pints per acre. For creeping bentgrass use 1.25 pints per acre. For common and hybrid bermudagrass, bahia, zoysia and St. Augustine grass apply 1.5 to 1.8 pints per acre. Spray volume for sod farm application is 5 to 175 gallons per acre.

Non-Turf Areas
Mix 2 to 5 pints per acre in adequate water to thoroughly saturate all weeds with spray mixture. This may require a spray volume of 50 to 300 gallons of water per acre. Apply any time between the time when plants come into full leaf (spring) to when the plants begin to go dormant. Do not cut weeds until herbicide has translocated throughout the plant causing root death. For small broadleaf weeds, use the lower rate. Heavy, dense stands require the higher rate with high water volume. For small (spot) applications with small tank sprayers, apply at the rate of 2.25 ounces of this product per gallon of water and spray to thoroughly wet all foliage.

For control of woody plants, apply to both stems and foliage any time from the time foliage is completely matured until the time plants start to go dormant. All leaves, stems and suckers must be completely wet to the ground line for effective control. Regrowth may be anticipated on the more resistant species. Add 4 to 5 pints of this product per acre in adequate water to thoroughly saturate all weeds with the spray mixture. This may require a spray volume of 200 to 600 gallons of water per acre depending upon the height and thickness of the brush. Mix thoroughly before spraying.

Maximum seasonal application rate to non-crop sites is 4 pounds 2,4-D acid equivalent per acre per application site.
