    Was wondering how long SedgeHammer will stay good after it has been mixed. This is the first time I have used the product and the label does not say. Thanks!

    ATV

    Try about 4 hours then pour it out. I suggest you mix only what you can spray right now. Most Herbicide have a much great mixed life. But Sledgehammer is one that has a very short half life.

    I dont know, I had some Manage (which I think is the same?) from LAST SEASON in a backpack and I recently sprayed a little yellow nutsedge in my own lawn. Worked fine

    I was going to spray another property today and some things came up and I had a gallon left over. I didn't know if it would hurt to mix tomorrow's batch with what I had left. Thanks guys.

    I would guess that's how most applicators do it.....

    Only one way to find out!

    Let us know how it works if you think to!

    Hey ATV,

    Did you ever learn if that was J Grass from the other day?

    Yes,

    I believe it is, and the people at Purdue's botany dept kind of confirmed it. Too bad there isn't an easy way to get rid of it.


    Thanks!

    Roundup is the best and cheapest! Got to get the Rhizome or you are not going to get rid of it!
