Providing results in as little as five days, this professional-grade, easy-to-apply granular formulation is effective on both cool and warm season turf.

- Governor G should not be applied unless irrigation is installed and water is plentiful.
- Governor G should be applied only when your lawn is healthy and well fed, and has been cut recently.
- Use an online square footage calculator to make sure you know the exact square footage of your lawn. Guessing could result in under- or over-application.
- Identify whether you have cool season (Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, ryegrass, etc.) or warm season (Bermuda, zoysia, St. Augustine, etc.) grass. This will determine your application rates, which vary significantly between the two.
- Whenever possible, weigh out the amount of product required.
- Avoid any corrective chemical applications such as weed killers both before and after application. Any damage from these will be slow to grow out.

- Applying in early morning can help with transferring the active ingredient to the plant. This is not required, just a best practice.
- Avoid cutting for at least 48 hours to avoid bagger pick-up or movement.
- Do not water in
- Apply every 4 weeks for continued control through the growing season. If heavy growth is seen sooner, apply earlier.
- Stop all applications 60 days prior to cold weather or frost that will cause grass to go dormant.

The spreader settings for this product were established using standard equipment available from the spreader manufacturer at swath widths and speeds typically used within the industry. Many variables such as walking speed, terrain, particle size, density, and spreader condition can affect these settings. Spreader settings are intended as a guide and unit calibration should still be performed to ensure proper application rates. They are not intended to replace calibration. The Andersons recommends the use of broadcast spreader for its products.
