The standard rate of glyphosate is 0.75 lb a.e. per acre. The rate should be increased to 1.13 for weed height ranging from 6 to 12 inches and to 1.50 for weeds > 12 inches tall.

PAR III IN THE SOIL Most of the spray applied lands on the weeds, grass and thatch. The very small amount of PAR III that lands on the soil is degraded biologically. It is degraded to water, carbon dioxide and humus. The process generally takes less than 30 days in the presence of warmth and moisture.
Spraying in the rain is not advised. Product washes off before it gets absorbed. However, spraying just before a rain — allowing time to satisfy label requirements — can provide effective control, especially if rains are forecast for a few days and weeds are growing strong. ... The rainfast requirement varies by product.
