    I'm very confident that's what I have. How do I kill it? Every one is all up on yellow nut sedge. I used Q4plus and it got a little toasty a week after the following week it was back I followed up and nothing. Please help

    Ps. Weed alert .com said q4 plus could take care of it. I followed the lable unless I misread.

    what do you mean everyone is all up about yellow sedge? You mean all your clients?

    What are you trying to release?

    Not unusual to have to reapply

    I use Certainty

    With yellow nut sedge I see wilt two weeks after the annual sedge is fresh and is showing no sign of effect. By every one being about yellow sedge I mean dealers and applicators in my area. One guy even call annual sedge a worm season grass.

    Bentazon (Basagran T/O) will control yellow nut sedges and several
    annual sedges in all species of turf grass.

    Manage provides good to excellent control of both purple and yellow nut sedge,
    annual sedges and fair control of the kyllinga species.

    There is no one shot treatment. Also excessive moisture and poor drainage is an underlying problem, if you manage these then you will have more success in controlling sedges.

    Certinty works well on Kyllinga, purple and yellow.
    It is slow acting, needs surfactant.

    JDL should have it.
