Weed eradication program

Nutsedges are common weeds in landscapes and gardens and on golf courses especially in the coastal areas.  They thrive in waterlogged soil and that is why you will find it around some greens and tee's that gets water regularly. Once established, however, they will tolerate normal irrigation conditions or drought. Although nutsedges resemble grasses and often are referred to as “nutgrass,” they aren’t grasses but are true sedges. Their leaves are thicker and stiffer than most grasses. Nutsedges are a problem in lawns because they grow faster, have a more upright growth habit, and are a lighter green color than most grass species, resulting in a nonuniform turf.

We have applied an application of Basagran to the nutsegde in the new fringes a week ago and you can all ready see how the chemical is doing its job.

We will be following up with another application this coming week and then we will be spraying all the other general areas in the weeks following.
