    Has anyone ever mixed Drive with Manage on cool season grasses. I have always done it seperate and use MSO with drive. But woundering if anyone puts it together. I know it's not a cheap mix for killing nutsedge and crab and the labels say nothing about mixing the two.

    You can mix if labor is the issue. Problem I see is Manage is very selective (will not touch anything but sedge) in its control and the cost; IMO would make it prohibited to spraying non target pest.

    This is on a residental athletic field about 2 acres that is full of nutsedge and crab. I have a toro spray rig 160gl w/18ft booms. So its a pretty quick job just would like to put both together with MSO and not get phyto. Just woundering if anyone else (with bigger balls then I)have done it.

    thanks

    Check out Lescos's new Momentum Q. Full rate momentum FX and full rate of Drive. Unlike Q4 which is 1/2 rated drive, it does contain Dismiss (sulfentrazone) for nutsedge supression. I saw a study form Purdue and Ohio State where they used Momentum with Hawkeye surfactant and had Nutsedge control and supression. if I was going to do drive and manage I would use the Momentm Q with manage for broader control of broadlesfs and use the hawkeye surfactant. Spray early morning when its cooler and have at it.

    I use Drive and Manage (Sedgehammer) all the time. Also put in Momentum FX, for spot spraying only. Just use a backpack.

    I have boom sprayed athletic fields with drive/sledgehammer, outstanding results.
