Started in mid May- how long for spray to take prior to rain? I suppose if it dries on plant should be effective? May have timed today's spraying too close. 2.5-4hrs. About to get pounded by storm. Extremely happy w release of grasses this year. YNS also showing up since last spraying few weeks ago

    Any thoughts or answers on rain question appreciated.

    4 hrs. is recommended.

    Thanks Matt. It dries here in Texas within a minute or two. Assume it has to be absorbed by plant.

    I checked everything this morning-The Primrose was already curling up and yellowing in some areas. I think 2.4D may work quicker than glyphosate. Good stuff. Even stuff sprayed 3 hours pre rain was curling up

    2-4 D is great, just have to be careful of drift and volatility

    Amine version isn't near as volitile as ester. I use it in the vicinity of soybeans all the time. Just us some common sense and you will be fine.
