At the NJ Turf Expo, Rutger's Scientist's presentation was a high recommendation of the effectiveness of Imprelis. Later I asked about concerns of water quality and detrimental effects on non-turf plants. He stated that was outside the parameters of their study.

Of course, we know that the university studies are completely independent and not affected by the source of the funding.

So, a couple things here before this thread gets too far off topic. 1) We have cool season turf here for the most part so Certainty is out. 2) From what the poster said about Imprelis was that nimblewill would need multiple apps and wouldn't actually kill it, it would simply keep it dormant, which isn't the option I like.

So, original question: Is the best way to eradicate nimblewill in a home lawn to nonselectively spray the affected area and reseed with appropriate measures?

I would still say Tenacity has the most promise. With it sending runners out so far you really need to kill off large portions of turf to really get rid of it.

IMHO:

1) Tenacity
2) Round-up and reseed

Ive had luck with just round up and reseeding. Obviously you cant spray it until its green.

Can't Bag clippings with Imprelis. Lol....... thats the best Organo-Joke Ive heard. Leaving the clippings in the lawn is the right answer for many reasons.

You can leave them on the lawn. Don't want to be removing any of that Imprellis even if it's on healthy grass blades.

I'm not sure if you caught my sarcasm about leaving the Imprelis on the lawn.
Thanks for pointing out the spelling of the product.
