This looks like sedge to me but I have never seen it so tall before.
This is definitely nutsedge. It can get up to 3 feet tall if left alone!

That is Purple Nutsedge. You are probably used to Yellow Nutsedge which grows much shorter. "Image" works better on Purple Nutsedge than Manage, Sledgehammer.
Yes, Yes, Yes Purple Nutsedge. Do not mow two days prior using the Image that Ric said and follow directions. Image is good but you won't see results for 3-4 weeks and probably will need a second application. There was a terrible infestation of it, but now turf is free.
has anyone tried dismiss yet? It creamates sedge!
Way too expensive for broadcast in my opinion. It does b***h slap sedge tho
Kills in 2-3 days, but cost wise it's only really good for spot treatments. Unless you can get away with charging a customer enough to make up for product+time, which in that case, more power to ya!
Thanks for the information folks ! This is an isloated patch(so far) about 1'x3' that came up near my composting area. I was thinking of just pulling them up by hand since they seem to be coming up so easily. The nutlets appear to come right up with it ........intact and all. I'm thinking I'll zap whatever comes back up after first pulling what I can in the stand.
P.S the nutlets on them are extremely hard
Yes, Stuff is amazing, but expensive
WATCH THE LABEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3 months to wait for reseeding. fescues and rye
Here is yellow nutsedge growing in a ditch. Tallest measured 26 inches and still growing. This pic was taken today.
