Details

Nufarm Prosedge Selective Herbicide is a selective herbicide for control of listed broadleaf weeds and nutsedge in: turfgrasses (established lawns, ornamental turfgrass, landscaped areas, commercial and residential turfgrass), and other non-cropsites (airports, cemeteries, fallow areas, golf courses, landscaped areas, public recreation areas, residential property, roadsides, school grounds, sod or turf seed farms, sports fields, landscaped areas with established woody ornamentals, fairgrounds, race tracks, tennis courts, campgrounds and rights-of-way).

TURFGRASS including SOD AND SEED FARMS AND OTHER NON-CROP SITES

Broadcast Treatments: This is a selective herbicide for post-emergence control of sedges such as purple and yellow nut sedge in sod or turf seed farms. This will not injure nearby established ornamentals, trees, and shrubs when used according to label directions.

For post-emergence control of purple or yellow nutsedge found in established turfgrass, apply 2/3 to 1 1/3 ounces by weight of this per acre (0.031 to 0.062 pounds active ingredient per acre) after nutsedge has reached the 3 to 8 leaf stage of growth. Use the lower rate in light infestations and the higher rate in heavy infestations.

If a second treatment is required, apply 6 to 10 weeks after the initial treatment. As a sequential treatment, when new purple or yellow nutsedge plants have reached the 3 to 8 leaf stage of growth, apply 2/3 to 1 1/3 ounces by weight of this per acre (0.031 to 0.062 pounds active ingredient per acre). Use the lower rate in light infestations and the higher rate in heavy infestations. No more than 2 applications can be made with the total use rate not exceeding 2 2/3 ounces of product (0.125 pound active ingredient) per acre per use season.

Use 0.25 to 0.5 percent nonionic surfactant concentration (1 to 2 quarts per 100 gallons of spray solution) for broadcast applications. For high volume applications, DO NOT exceed 1 quart of surfactant per acre. Use only nonionic surfactants which contain at least 80 percent active material.

Spot Treatments:

Mix 0.03 ounce (0.9 gram) of this product in one or two gallons of water to treat 1,000 square feet. Add 2 tea spoons (1/3 fluid ounce) of nonionic surfactant per gallon of water.

    Works good

    By Paul on 05/30/2011

    I used this last year, and quite a bit less sedge has come up so far. Like all sedge control products, it will be a multi-year project, requiring multiple applications. The hardest part is measuring out the product, an accurate scale is a must. (I tend to mix 1 gallon of product at a time, but for spot treating, I mix up 1 quart). The little packet is convenient, but the bottle is alot more affordable. Be sure to use a spreader sticker.

    Took care of our nutgrass problem with one application. You have to be patient ---- It took one week to turn the grass yellow and another two weeks for it to die.

    Works Great but Apply Early

    By George on 05/28/2013

    Verified Purchase

    This is the only product I've used that actually kills nutsedge. However, it's most effective when applied when it first starts to grow in spring. Though I've had it work in summer and fall, it typically takes more than 1 dose to work then.

    Prosedge Herbacide

    By Robin-horticulturist on 09/06/2012

    Verified Purchase

    The nutsedge is yellowing gradually 2 weeks from application. No damage to nearby ornamentals. New untreated sprouts still emerging so we will retreat, but the battle is on! Areas treated by Glyphosate previously killed the plants but caused multiple sprouting response that got out of control quickly. Recommend leaving yellowing sedges in the ground until sprouting stops.

Q
When using ProSedge on bermuda and fescue lawns, can it be applied when temps are over 90 degrees?
A

ProSedge Herbicide needs to be applied when temperatures are under 85 degrees. Making applications first thing in the morning or in the early evening is a common time. Applying herbicides at temperatures over 85 degrees increases the risk of burning your lawn.
