How to Kill Nutsedge
HOW TO KILL NUTSEDGE
Nutsedge is a slender, waxy-leaf weed that can be easily identified by it’s triangular stem, distinctive mid-rib and leaves that form in groups of three. Nutsedge can be difficult to control due to the tubers that remain in soil year round and pulling nutsedge will only make matters worse! When you pull nutsedge, the tubers become activated and more weeds are produced.
Poorly drained soils are often a precursor to nutsedge infestations and the nutsedge seeds and tubers can be transported through new soil or plant materials introduced in the landscape. The geographic range of the nutsedge plant has spread rapidly over the years to where yellow nutsedge now covers the lower 48 states and purple nutsedge can be found in approximately 2/3 of the United States.
Most spray herbicides only burn nutsedge weeds back for a few days, but do not possess lasting control. The fast growth habit of nutsedge creates competition for light, water and nutrients with native plant species. One nutlet can generate up to 1,500 plants in its lifetime!
