Hello,

Round up works while it is WET. You can replant the neat day, but I would wait for a good hot day to let it dry up well.

Hope this helps

Roundup works on the leaves of an active plant. It is not a preventative. Use Preen for preventing weeds. If you do spray Roundup on active weed, it takes two weeks before you can plant your good plant material.

When can I lay grass sod after using roundup?


You can lay the grass right away. Roundup dies as soon as it touches the soil. It only works through the green leaves. Stephen.

I have treated the area with roundup for about a 70% kill rate. A friend just mowed over the area. Will this impact the ongoing kill, and do I need to spray the area again?


When was the field mowed after spraying? If it was after three days, then the plants that were treated will die off. You probably should plan to retreat the areas that weren't killed after those plants are growing again. (It will take a few days depending on moisture and other conditions.)

In general, you can spray any missed plants 7 days after the first treatment. Then mow or seed the area 3 days after the second treatment.

If the field was mowed prior to the three days after the first treatment, retreat the entire area after the new growth begins.

For specific details, read the label for your Roundup product. Scotts has the label at the bottom of their product pages. All of the Scotts Roundup products are listed here: http://www.scotts.com/smg/catalog/productCategorySubSelf.jsp;jsessionid=64F09279DC15FE8877450FE65C85C38E?itemId=cat50096&navAction=jump . Select the specific one you used and click on the View Product details link. Then click on the View Label link. For example the label for the Roundup RTU (ready to use) Pump and Go Spray formulation is here: http://www.scotts.com/smg/products/round_up/kill_and_prevent_weeds/pdf/BasePNG.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How much round up PRO do you mix per gallon of water


It depends on the amount of active ingredient you need to kill the plants in your property. The rate is dependent on the size of the plants. For a final concentration of 1/2% (plants under 6" in height - do not mow them short the day before spraying), you need 2/3 oz of Roundup Pro (not the Roundup Pro Concentrate). However, if your area has perennials that are larger (stressed or 1-2 feet tall), you might need 2% Roundup, and then you need 2 and 2/3 oz of Roundup Pro.

Please read the label for your product and identify the plants in your location to get the appropriate rate.

Many Monsanto product labels are available as PDFs here: http://www.cdms.net/LabelsMsds/LMDefault.aspx?manuf=23&t= .

Do not mow or disturb the plants for three days after spraying. You may need to apply the Roundup in 7 days to get any plants that you missed (or weren't affected by the first dose). Wait another 3 days after the second application before planting in the area.

I hope this helps.

How long do I need to wait to reseed / sod lawn after applying roundup?


If you use Roundup or equivalent (do not use the long-acting product with a pre-emergent). Then you can reseed three days after the treatment. Do check the label for your specific product for any directions that differ for the reseeding schedule.

Some specific treatment limits: First some lawns will require two treatments with Roundup before reseeding (or planting sod). So wait 7 days after the first application to identify any green (growing) spots and then retreat. After all existing lawn grasses and weeds have been treated, you can rake the area and then put down sod or grass seed 3 days after application.

Second: for best results the plants treated with Roundup need to get rain or irrigation a few days before the application and 2-3 days after the application. (This is true if the soil is dry when you are getting ready to plant.)

I hope this helps.

I recently used ROUNDUP on a lawn The product did its job, the weeds are gone, so is some of the grass near the spray. It has not rained since the spay went on - maybe 10 - 12 days. How can I restore the...


Your grass is probably dead as well. Roundup is a non selective herbicide and will kill anything green. So take care when applying. Even green stems of young trees. Shield from spray when spraying. The best is to plant new grass. Roundup stays active in the soil for around two weeks despite what Monsanto says so add new topsoil when laying new runners or a new block of grass. Rain is no issue except within 6 hours of treatment. You can water the lawn with no problem now. Good luck and take care-Roundup is a poison that does affect our hormonal balances especially women.

When can I plant grass after using Roundup?


You can plant or replant as soon as the weeds you sprayed are dead. Roundup is deactivated upon contact with the soil, it only affects the plant material sprayed.
