What weather conditions are required for
Herbicide Control Treatments?
What we look for
For best control when using herbicides, an applicator needs to have at least 4 hours without heavy rain for herbicides to become rain-fast. Light precipitation can be beneficial. However, if heavy rain occurs and the weeds do not die, the job will be redone without any additional charge to you. Also, winds cannot exceed 10 miles per hour due to drift concerns.
There are no grazing restrictions on the herbicides we use. However, humans (and animals) without proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are required to stay out of all treated areas until the herbicide has fully dried. Dry time is dependent on weather conditions but is typically around 4 hours.
WMA Specialists, by law, is required to know all details of every herbicide applied per state law prior to application.
