How long should I wait to spray my new smooth brome field with 24-D to control weeds?  Seeded the field 4 weeks ago.

Wait until the plant has tillered with at least 3 tillers and 4 is better. And I wouldn't use over 2 pints per acre of 2-4D and about 1/2 the normal surfactant....or about 1 pint per 100 gallons of liquid for surfactant.

Sorry if I confused you with my comments. 

 

I typically mix 1 quart of surfactant per 100 gallons of tank mix. Or 2 quarts for 200 gallons of tank mix.

 

Surfactant is based on tank mix volume and not per acre.
