Which pre- emergent is best for control of nutsedge

Every year i have problem with nutsedge weed. Can you suggest which pre- emergent is best to use.


Nut sedge is a summer weed that is hard to control using a pre emergent. A great post emergent to ponder over is called Sedgehammer. SedgeHammer herbicide kills nutsedge without injury to turfgrass, established ornamentals, shrubs, and/or trees. SedgeHammer provides post-emergence control of both purple nutsedge and yellow nutsedge. SedgeHammer also controls many broadleaf weeds and suppresses kyllinga. Nutsedge is controlled after emergence in cool and warm season turf grasses such as St. Augustinegrass, Bermudagrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, tall and fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass. Sedgehammer is considered one of the more "gentle to turfgrass" products and pets and people can return to the treated area once the spray dries.
