Wet Weather Makes a Great Environment for Yellow Nutsedge

Yellow nutsedge is a troublesome, difficult-to-control turf weed. Information on its identification is available in a recent weed of the month blog posting. Wet, summertime conditions like we are now having favor its growth and development. Understanding this plant’s biology will help in determining the best control methods. Two Purdue publications are also available to help answer questions on the best way to control this weed. The professional publication also addressed the identification and control of other sedge species problematic in turf.
