What should be used to eliminate nutsedge and when should it be applied?

Manage works well. It's a post M.

Manage is going to be packaged as Sedgehammer this year. Apply postemergent treatment when it emerges. This varies depending on your location in the country.

I use momentum.

Not a good idea as it is not labeled for and doesn't control nutsedge. Manage (soon to be Sedge) is the industry standard for a reason.

My container is labeled for nutgrass which is the same thing as nutsedge.

Nutgrass or nutsedge is exactly that a sedge, not a broadleaf weed. That is what Momentum is labeled to control. Check your label again. I checked the one I have on file and checked with Lesco.com and neither one says it is labeled for that purpose!

I must be going crazy. I just bought a container of Momentum FX and it clearly says nutgrass under the "weeds controlled" part.



If you click on the link and go under the PDF file you will find NUTGRASS on page 5.

Different product than Momentum . Your original post did not mention that FX variation.

Thanks all, Sedge it is. Is Momentum FX to be discontinued next year?
