Barricade 65 WDG (WDG means Wettable Dispersable Granule) is a pre-emergence herbicide that offers low rate, season-long control of 30 grassy and broadleaf weeds, including crabgrass, goosegrass and Bluegrass (Poa annua), in turf and ornamentals. Its unique, non-staining active ingredient and application flexibility have quickly made Barricade one of the most popular herbicides in the green industry. Barricade WG can be applied in the fall to control crabgrass through the following growing season. Barricade is available in 3 lb. and 10 lb. containers.

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, 2011Phil 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, 2011Joe 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, 2011Robert 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).

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.
August 4, 2011Ron asked:
QCan I apply Barricade when preparing soil for sod - Tall Fescue and/or Bermuda?
I would like to till and incorporate Barricade into the soil, along with lime and fertilizer, when preparing my soil to lay sod (I will have Tall Fescue in front yard and Bermuda in back yard). Can this be done, or will the Barricade harm root establishment of the new sod?
AYou CANNOT use barricade in the soil before sodding. Doing this will impede root growth and kill your sod. You should not apply any pre-emergent or selective weed killer for at least 2 to 3 months after your sod is layed and established. Unfortunately there is no pre-emergent that would be acceptable to apply before you lay down sod on residential land.

QDoes Barricade 65 WDG Herbicide require a spreader/sticker?

October 18, 2012Mark 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.
November 8, 2012Hal from Monroe, Ga. 30656 asked:
Qcan I spray barricade over my daylily garden and not do them harm?
I will use a tractor 3 point hitch 50 gallon sprayer --- what amount of Barricade? The garden is approximately 1200 square feet in size. Can I also spray this over my 1/2 acre vegetable garden?
ABarricade is labeled to be used around Day-lilies but you cannot use it around edible vegetation. The amount of Barricade per 1,000 sq ft of area that needs to be treated will vary from 0.37-0.83 oz./1,000 sq ft (1-2.25 TBSP/1,000 sq ft) depending on the weeds you are trying to control. You can apply the specified amount of product in whatever amount of water you need to use to insure the product is distributed over the 1,000 sq ft area. Please read the Barricade product label for complete usage instructions.
March 1, 2013Matt from Richmond, Va asked:
QCan I tank mix Barricade and 2-4-D?
A Barricade can be mixed with any 2, 4-D product so long as a surfactant is used in the mix. You will want to thoroughly mix the Barricade in the tank first and then add the surfactant and 2, 4-D.

April 15, 2013Scott from Massachusetts asked:
QCan I use an "Ortho Dial and Spray" to apply product to lawn. What is the dial setting (assuming 1lb per acre)?
ABarricade 65 WDG is not a liquid, it is a water dispersable granule and we do not recommend you try to use this type of product in a hose end sprayer.
