    I tested T-Zone and Surge for use in controlling nutsedge. Both contain some sulfentrazone, both list nutsedge as a weed "suppressed". I had better results (in my opinion) with Surge. Both products are by Gordons.
    Neither product killed it completely.

    Sedgehammer... would have been nice to see comparisons with that. But nevertheless, another great Riggle experiment

    Dissmiss is hands down the best product to control nutsedge. IMHO. I have applied and started to see very clear results within 48 hours..

    I had very little luck with T-Zone on yellow nut sedge.

    What rate are you applying at? We have pretty good luck with it on even fairly large sedges. Dismiss still works better but it is nice to be able to spot spray some smaller areas with something a little cheaper and will get good enough control that we aren't getting called back out.

    Certainty is my go to on sedge, yellow and purple. Sulfentrazone yellows it super fast but doesn't seem to eradicate it as well.

    Yes dismiss works really well. I use the medium rate and it still kills it.
