    Hey guys, I have a few new accounts that i just picked up this past snow storm we had hear in Ny and I already had a customer this year that has nutsedge, and 2 of my new accounts the customers had said they have a this weed that pops up when the temps start to warm up and that it looks like grass just with a taller and thicker blade, so i had showed them a few pics off of google and asked if it was the weed in the pics and it was, it was nutsedge, I was told by a landscaper I worked for if i used ortho weed spray with crabgrass killer in it, it should work and it did but then new plants would start to pop up the next week i would mow, so any ideas on what product I should use to eliminate this nutsedge? Thanks - Joe :hammerhead::hammerhead:

    This year I used a new product that John Deere just started carrying called Solitaire. The results were good however it is expensive.

    It cost $125 for a 1lb jar and I think you get about 36 gallons out of that jar.

    Yes, but I put more stock in the opinions here than on the so called consumer reviews on the distributors websites. I would take Ric's advice over google reviews anyday.

    sedge hammer works good, sometimes takes more than one app to completely knock it out. JDL sells it in two sizes, a little 1.33 oz bottle that treats an acre at the stronger mix and is costly (sorry don't have the figures in front of me) and a little packet that makes 1 gallon of mix and is cheap. If you'll be using it a decent amount then the bottle is worth it.
