    How long it takes to kill the nutsedge depends on many factors including the stage of growth the nut sedge is in and what kind of health your lawn overall is in.  However, most of our customers do say they see results usually within 2 weeks of the first application.

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

    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.

    Q
    After ProSedge Herbicide is mixed can the rest be stored for use later?
    A
    Anytime you mix up a product, whether herbicide or insecticide, you want to only mix up what you plan to use. After being mixed for 24-48 hours products will start to break down and will slowly lose their effectiveness the longer it stays in a mixed solution.

    Q
    How many applications does ProSedge Herbicide take to eliminate nutsedge?
    Dose ProSedge have surfactant in it & is the DyneAmic best to use if one is not in the product?
    A
    ProSedge does not come with surfactant in the product and one should be added.  Any non-ionic surfactant can be used.  Dyneamic is definitely one of our best sellers, but it does only come in a gallon container which is a lot.  We do sell surfactant in smaller pints and quarts as well.

    Q
    What happens if you forget to add the surfactant before you spray with the ProSedge Herbicide?

    The surfactant helps penetrate the natural waxy tissue of plants by not using one the application may not be as effective as it should have been.  Per the ProSedge Herbicide product label, if a second treatment is required you would apply within 6 - 10 weeks from the initial treatment.

    Q
    Is ProSedge safe to use in a vegetable garden?
    Is there a product that kills nutsedge that is safe to use on a vegetable garden?
    A
    We are not aware of a product that will kill the nutsedge in an edible garden. We do carry nutsedge control products that are labled for lawns but should not be applied around ornamentals or edibles. We recommend that you contact your local cooperative extension office and speak to a Master Gardener for recommendations.

    Q
    When is it safe to apply ProSedge Herbicide to Nutsedge in my newly planted yard?
    The Nutsedge is within my yard within the area where I planted grass seed about a month ago that is now 2" tall. I'm worried the Nutsedge killer will hurt the newly seeded grass!
    A

    When using ProSedge Herbicide you would need to mow at least 2 times before applying it to a newly seeded lawn. It is best to wait until you can mow 3 times.

    Q
    Can I apply ProSedge Herbicide next to sago palms?
    I purchased the Prosedge Selective Herbicide in the .03 oz. packet. I want to hand spray the product next to some sago palms. Some of the spray will go into the soil when I water with the Prosedge, will it damage or kill the sago palms?
    A
    ProSedge Herbicide is only formulated to affect grassy weeds and should have no effect on a larger tree like your sago palms.  Mix the product according to the label and there should be no issues.
