    Q
    Is Confront safe for use on our well-established St. Augustine lawn?
    We have a nutsedge problem. Image has not worked. A lawn service rep (who knows our lawn) highly recommended confront. The product came today--thanks for the speedy service. The label does not specify St. Augustine.
    A
    Confront Herbicide should NOT be applied to St. Augustine turf or residential lawns per the product label.

    Southern Ag Basagran Sedge Control is labeled to treat for nutsedge in St. Augustine grass and would not harm the grass.  Though our most popular product for nutsedge in the Sedgehammer Herbicide.  It can be used in St. Augustine as well.

    Q
    Will Confront harm juniper?
    Looking to kill Canada Thistle among low growing Juniper.
    A

    Confront Herbicide is not labeled as safe to apply over juniper.  Lontrel Turf and Ornamental would be a better option.  For control of weeds such as Canada thistle and knapweeds, apply after the majority of the basal leaves have emerged, but before bud stage. Later application may result in less consistent control.
