Thanks for all the responses. I applied the 2,4-D. I had about a day and a half of sunny weather after the 2,4-D was applied and then had heavy rain. I have another question. This is my first season doing my own hay. I use to do the 50-50 split with a very nice farmer. He would bring in one of those huge spray rigs and fertilize/weed spray at the same time. He would apply liquid on my grass, when there was alot of brown and dead grass and to me the grass was still dorment, with a little new growth. The farmer said it would go into the soil. If it is suppose to be obsorbed through the leaf, can it, and is it also absorbed through the roots? Thanks Mamma....

Are you refering to the fertilizer, or the 2,4-D? The 2,4-D does need to be absorbed via the leaves. The fertilizer is absorbed only through the roots. In fact, you want the fertilizer down before the grass gets really going, or it can actually "burn" or damage the grass.

Yep. When these cats around here clear kill a field for planting alot of us round here just drop the liquid nitrogen down close to the ground and burn up weeds grass and all.
