How long after spraying Roundup can it rain? For best results, we recommend using Roundup® Weed & Grass Killer products on dry, warm, wind-free days. But if it's about to rain, fear not — all of our products should dry and become rainfast within 30 minutes to 3 hours — some even faster.

Is Roundup waterproof?
Roundup® For Lawns is rainproof in as little as three hours, so there's no need to let a few clouds ruin your weed killing fun. Make sure the temperature is between 45 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit1 for best results.
Should I mow before applying Roundup?
DO NOT mow before you spray. Roundup works by contact with the leaves on the plant. You'd get a kill if you mow but it would work better if you spray on the weeds before you mow.
