Barricade WDG is a pre-emergent herbicide that controls susceptible weeds by preventing growth and development of newly germinated weeds. Weed control is most effective when Barricade is activated by at least 0.5 inch of rainfall or irrigation, or shallow incorporation (1-2 inches) before weed seeds germinate and within 14 days following application.
Barricade may be applied as a single application or in sequential applications to control weeds germinating throughout the year. All applications must be made before target weeds germinate because Barricade will not control weeds that have already emerged.
The amount of Barricade to apply depends upon the length of residual weed control desired (the higher the application rate, the longer the control) and the turf species.
Long Residual Control
The unique formulation of BARRICADE 65WDG offers weed protection that lasts. Even at the lowest rate, BARRICADE offers an average of three months crabgrass control. At the highest rate (1.5 pounds per acre), control extends to 8 months.
This means fewer applications for you. One application in the spring controls crabgrass even in Southern locations. In the cooler climates of the northern U.S., one fall application provides season-long crabgrass control.
BARRICADE is the longest-lasting pre-emergent weed control product on the market. One application takes you through the end of the season, giving you and your workers more time for everything else on your busy schedule.
Barricade 65 WG is labeled for use on the following turf grasses:
Bermudagrass, Bahiagrass, Centipedegrass, Kikuyugrass, Seashore Paspalum, St. Augustinegrass, Tall Fescue (including turf-type), Fine Fescue, Zoysiagrass, Buffalograss, Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, Creeping Bentgrass (0.5 inches or more in height).

March 7, 2011 Phil asked:
QHow much Barricade 65 WDG should I mix per gallon of water?
A The first thing you need to know when using an herbicide such as Barricade 65 WDG is that the exact amount of water you dilute it with is not important. It is only important to make sure you are using the correct amount of product per 1,000 sq ft of lawn. Use too much and you risk damaging your lawn, use too little and you will not get adequate results. You will need to use 0.185-0.55 oz per 1,000 sq ft . To decide how much water you want to use, you should mark a 1,000 sq ft area, fill your sprayer with water ONLY, and start walking and spraying just as if you were doing the actual application of herbicide. When you are done walking and spraying the 1,000 sq ft area note how much water it took you to spray that area, and that is the amount you will want to mix 0.185-.055 oz of product with for each 1,000 sq ft area that needs to be treated. You will need to make sure treated areas are irrigated with at least 1/2 inch of water (either by rainfall or by sprinkler) following the application.

April 2, 2011 Joe asked:
QI have 1.5 acres, how much Barricade will I need? How soon do you need it to rain after applying?
I will be using a 15 gallon sprayer to apply
AYou must read the product label to determine how much you need as the rate per acre depends on what you are treating, what type of grass that you have, and what area of the country you are in. Typically you apply between 1 and 1.5 lbs of product per acre. The product needs rain to activate and to get deep into the root system where upcoming weeds are trying to germinate. You should either water the product in or apply when it will rain in a few days. The product must have water within 14 days of application, otherwise you will not get very good results.
February 11, 2011 Robert asked:
QHow many gallons of water do I need to use to spray per 1000 sq ft when I am using Barricade ?
AYou should mix the required amount of Barricade (0.185-0.55 oz per 1,000 sq ft) in to at least .5 gal of water. In this case, the water only acts like a carrier so the actual amount of water you use to apply the product does not matter very much and you could use .5 to 2 or 3 gallons and you will have pretty much the same result. After Barricade has been applied, it must be watered in with at least 1/2 inch of water (rain or irrigation is fine).
June 7, 2011 Danny asked:
QWhat is a good pre-emergent for weed control in hybrid bermuda grass? I have nut grass and splurge in it
Also poua grass
AWe are not sure what part of the country you are in, but most of the country is past the time to apply pre-emergents. You should apply two applications of Barricade around Feb. 15th and then again around May 15th to prevent these grasses from coming up. As for treating existing weeds in your grass, you should use Sedgehammer for the nut grass and End Run for the splurge and other broad leaf weeds you may have. The poua grass will typically burn out here on its own very shortly since it is an annual grass.

Mark from Athens Texas asked:
QWhat is the best product to kill sandburs?
I have read a pre-emergent herbicide is the best is that true?
ATo prevent sandburs you should apply Barricade as a pre-emergent in the late fall. Be sure to read over the Barricade product label to make sure your grass species is listed as a tolerant variety. Sandburs are easier to prevent than to try to get rid of once they have invaded your yard.

Ben from Tucson, Az asked:
QIs Barricade chemically compatible with glyphosate sodium and diquat-dibromide?
I wish to mix barricade, glyphosate and diquat-dibromide for long-term vegetation kill/control (I want bareground sparing the trees). I am aware that the recommendation is to alternate treatments, however, I've been unable to find compatibility information in neither the label nor MSDS. The label essentially says "try it and if it separates, it's incompatible" is there anything more specific, like a chemical compatibility guide? Thank you in advance.

Jeff from Celina, Ohio asked:
QSpray Application - What time of year
I was told that I could spray Barricade 65 WDG in the fall from the folks I purchased it from. But as I read the label it sounds like I would get the best bang for my buck would be around the Fed - March time frame. What do you recommend?
A Different weeds will germinate at different times of the year. To control winter weeds it is recommended to treat prior to germination in the fall and then to treat again in the spring for the summer weeds. It all depends on the target weeds and your region. We would recommend you contact your local Cooperative Extension Office for more specific recommended application timing in your area for your weeds.

Todd from Leesport, Pa asked:
QAugust in Pennsylvania. Is it too late to apply this product?
I planted a new lawn in an area disturbed by construction equipment this spring. It came in nicely but is now being overrun by grassy weeds. It is August in southern Pennsylvania. Is it too late to apply this product or do you recommend something else?
A Barricade 65 WDG Herbicide is a pre-emergent. Once it is too warm, it is usually to late to apply it. However, you can use a post-emergent. Pre-emergents such as Barricade 65 WDG can be used in the late fall to prevent futher growth of weeds for the upcoming spring. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Swingos from Northern Kentucky asked:
QYour Barricade label says to be used to kill weeds in established turfgrasses,
What about application to Bermuda grass that is still dormant after the winter? Rosemary
A Barricade is a pre-emergence herbicide that controls susceptible weeds by preventing growth and development of newly germinated weeds. It does not kill actively growing weeds. It can be safely applied to dormant or non dormant Bermudagrass. Application timing will vary by region and the best person to ask about application timing is your local master gardener who works at your local cooperative extension office

Sharon from Greenbay, Wi asked:
QWhat if my dog eats the grass after being treated with Barricade?
My dogs always eat the long grasses at the fenceline. A few days after Barricade treatment, my dog started to to show signs of hind leg muscle weakness. I have ruled out other possible causes.
A The Barricade 65 WDG Herbicide is safe for pets once it is dry. If you suspect that the Barricade 65 WDG Herbicide has had an effect on your dog then we would recommend that you contact your Veterinarian's office and provide them with the Barricade 65 WDG Herbicide MSDS so that they can make a proper diagnosis and provide the appropriate treatment..

John from Canton, Ohio asked:
QHow to remove Barricade 65 WDG or render it ineffective
Well, the grass people came by today and applied barricade as part of their "spring" treatment. Unfortunately, they spray all lawn areas, including the bare spots that need reseeded. How much water should I use on the bare spots to dilute the barricade so that I can reseed over the next few weeks. Reseeding cannot wait the 6-8 weeks recommended.
A Since Barricade 65 WDG Herbicide is a pre emergent, applying more water will actually help further push the active ingredient into the root system. We can only recommend reseeding 8 weeks after application, if not longer. Please contact the manufacturer Syngenta at 866-796-4368 for help trouble shooting.

Steve from Sc asked:
QCan I mix Barricade and RoundUp in the same mixing tank for spraying?
A RoundUp is a non-selective herbicide and Barricade is a pre-emergent herbicide. You can apply RoundUp first and wait a couple of weeks prior to applying Barricade this will depend on what you are treating and the area of application. Please refer to the product labels for specific application instructions.
