Application Tips:

  • Moisture on leaf surface is not required. Apply when weed leaves are wet or dry.
  • Temperatures below 50°F will reduce weed control activity.
  • For best results, water-in granules within 48 hours after treatment.
  • For best results, postpone mowing until granules are watered-in.
  • For best winter annual control (henbit, false dandelion, and chickweed) apply in early fall.

    Product was not in tack when i received it.

    By Jeffrey on 08/21/2020

    When I received my Vexis herbicide in the mail, the lid had come off during shipment and lost half of the product. The postal worker brought my package to my door and said that there was granular pellets coming out of the package. When i opened the package the lid was off and there was granular pellets every where. Need to seal the lids before shipping it out.

    Worked Great

    By Todd on 10/10/2020

    I have had Nutsedge in my yard for years now and the pros have put tons of chemicals to try and get rid of it. However, with just one application and a little patience this product got rid of it all. I am very very pleased with the product.

    Really works

    By Cj on 08/14/2020

    I was somewhat skeptical when I first purchased this and thought I would give it a try as sedge is a real problem in our area, not just for golf courses, but also on private lawns. I selected a small test plot to try and spread the Vexis fairly freely onto the plot. After a few days I saw no change and thought, "darn...another product that does not work on sedge." However, two weeks later, the entire plot of sedge is almost gone. I noted it turning slightly yellow after about 8 days. The key is to keep it watered in and mowed. We mow this plot three times a week and so it was getting cut consistently. It will be interesting to see IF this is a permanent kill for the sedge. Hoping so. Would recommend this product.

Q
Can Vexis Herbicide be applied on bermuda that was sodded 3 weeks ago?

I thought another product had killed my nutsedge so I dug out the area and sodded celebration bermuda. Turns out the "dead" nutsedge enjoyed the daily watering more than the new grass so although the sod has done well the nutsedge is just as healthy and better established.

A

It is best not to apply products until your lawn is well established, which typically means that it has been mowed at least twice.  Per the Vexis Herbicide Granular Product Label: "Delay application of this product until 3 weeks after sodding, sprigging or plugging operations".
