Joe writes,

I 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


You 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.
