Apply Barricade 18-0-4 in early spring and fall before weed seeds have had a chance to germinate. For best results, the product should be watered-in with rainfall or irrigation with at least 0.5-inch of water within two weeks of application.

As a pre-emergent weed control product, Barricade 18-0-4 will not help control existing weeds.

Do not apply Barricade 18-0-4 to overseeded turf within 60 days after seeding or until after the second mowing, whichever is longer.

Barricade 18-0-4 will inhibit the germination of turf species if seeded/overseeded too soon after application. See the label for proper rates and intervals for best seeding/overseeding results.
