|Trade Name: Sedgehammer||Common Name: halosulfuron||Formulation: 75% DG|
Postemergence control of annual and perennial sedges (yellow and purple nutsedge, and kyllinga) in established landscape woody ornamentals and turfgrass. Around ornamental landscape plants Sedgehammer should be applied as a directed spray.
|Amount of Active Ingredient||Amount by Formulation|
|Per Acre||0.031 to 0.062 lb ai||0.67 to 1.3 oz|
|Per 1,000 sq. ft.||0.9 grams per gallon|
Major Weeds Controlled
Yellow nutsedge, purple nutsedge, green kyllinga, and annual sedges. Some seedling broadleaf weeds may also be controlled including eclipta, galinsoga and others.
Major Weeds Not Controlled
Most annual and perennial grasses and broadleaves such as spurge, dandelions lambsquarters, and oxalis are not controlled.
For Best Results
Apply in late spring or early summer to when nutsedge plants are 4 to 6 inches tall and growing vigorously. Add non-ionic surfactant when using the 75% DF formulation. The 5% formulation has surfactant included in the formulation. Repeat the application in 6 weeks. Do not exceed two applications per year.
Cautions and Precations
Around ornamentals, use only as a directed application to established woody plants. Contact with the foliage of ornamentals should be avoided. Injury has been reported on several woody ornamental species including arborvitae, hemlock, and taxus. Over the top applications to ornamentals has caused injury to many species. Do not apply to herbaceous perennials or bedding plants. Do not use on container-grown ornamentals.
At recommended rates, about 6 to 8 weeks of weed control can be expected.
Volatility and Leaching Potential
Nonvolatile. Halosulfuron is mobile in soils, and the amount of leaching is influenced organic matter, with less leaching occurring in soils with greater organic matter content.
Symptoms and Mode of Action
Inhibits the enzyme acetolactate synthase (ALS), responsible for the production of certain amino acids. Symptoms take several weeks to develop and include general stunting, chlorosis, and necrosis of the growing points. HRAC Group B; WSSA Group 2.
