Nematode Control as a Rescue Treatment for Sod Turfgrass of Zoysiagrass, Bermuda grass and St. Augustine grass on Sod Farms
For Nematode control prior to harvesting/cutting turfgrass sod on sod farms, it is recommended to make a broadcast application 1-2 months prior to harvesting or cutting turfgrass sod. Make an application of QualiPro NIMITZ Pro G Nematicide at 120 – 240 pounds per acre to the established turfgrass sod. It is required to irrigate the sod following application with an adequate amount of water (generally 0.25-0.5 inches). For low cut or fairway height turfgrass sod to improve the product penetration to the root zone and soil, it is recommended that the broadcast application should follow aerification (1-10 days) prior to application. Quali-Pro NIMITZ Pro G Nematicide has been shown to provide effective control of nematodes and increase root tensile strength of newly harvested sod.
Should Nimitz Pro G Nematicide be applied before or after new zoysia sod installation on residential property?
Per the Manufacturer, it’s recommended to apply 60-80 pounds per acre of Nimitz Pro G Nematicide to the bare soil and water in with 1/4-½ inch of water immediately after application. Wait 10-14 days before laying the sod. Once laid, you can do an application over the sod after 30 days, using the rate of 60 pounds per acre.
