use summary

Apply Sure Power® in 0.2 to 5.5 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft to control weeds growing in Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and fescue species. For best results, apply when weeds are small in size and actively growing. Use lower application rate for control of sensitive weeds and higher application rates for dense infestations of perennial weeds. During conditions that promote heat stress use lower rates. 

precautionary tips for successful results

Refer to the precautionary language on the Sure Power label for practices to avoid

  • Do not tank mix with any other products, fertilizers or surfactants
  • Use caution when applying to ensure no spray solution collects on the tires of application equipment
  • Assure that spray is completely dry prior to entering treated areas as accumulation on tires can lead to tracking
  • Avoid applications during conditions of fog, high moisture, and wet foliage
  • Avoid applications for at least 14 days following freezing conditions or frost


The right time to spray

  • Focus broadcast Sure Power applications when turf is hardened-off (June 15 – September 15)
  • Air and soil temperatures are warmer (consistently)
  • Grass dries faster
  • Turfgrass cuticles are thicker and plants have additional protection on their leaves
  • Emergence of most key target weeds for Sure Power has occurred


application restrictions

The maximum rate per applications is 3.5 pt/A, and the maximum seasonal rate is 7.25 pt/A per year. Do not apply more than two broadcast applications to the same treatment site per year, excluding spot treatments. The minimum treatment interval between applications is 30 days.

See label for complete directions for use, precautions and restrictions.
