My Midwest Mgr. with 45 years in seed and the last 10 in covers says 2,4-D can have residual effect on seedlings especially without enough rains. He really likes Sharpen for its quick half-life and kill power on legumes and broadleaves.

I used 1 pint along with 1.5 pints glyphos. I planted the field within a day, the seed was planted 1-1.5" deep. WE had good moisture when planted and about 3 tenths of an inch of rain about a week after planting . At first I thought I should have put the seed at 1/2" because the soil was cold but the more I thought about it that 3 tenths of rain probably moved the 2,4-d right on the seed. I had never read the label in regards to planting times after application. I will now probably try banvel with glyphos.
