I have a customer with a small vegetable garden(tomatoes and peppers) and it is full of yellow nutsedge. Is there anything I could use to kill the nutsedge?
Roundup quick pro, and manage are not labled for it. I think roundup pro has a sticker in also, so mabey it is not labled for it.
Any ideas.......:confused:

I was about to reccommend Manage, but then I thought I should re-read the label first.

The label states "Not for use for on food crops". So unless they are growing the tomato's and peppers for there ornamental value, the label won't let you do it.

I would recommend buying her fruits(tomatoes and peppers are fruits) at the grocery store and spray the area to get rid of the shedge, then replant when the label say its safe to.

I have it in my garden, its REALLY easy to pull.

If they want a veggie garden there IS some work along with it.
