I have Nutgrass growing in my lawn and the person who sold me the turf recommended that I use Sempra. I have read the brochures and am not sure whether I should be using it. I have a vegetable garden growing in my back yard, I don't intend to spray in the garden, but have the Nutgrass growing about 2 metres away from the garden and cannot ascertain from the brochures whether this is safe and whether the Sempra is residual or non-residual in the soil. Do you know?

Answer: Hi Craig,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

We would not recommend any products that are not registered to be used in the garden bed or lawn and recommend that prior to applying any products that you read the label instructions carefully and contact the manufacturer if you have any enquires.

For the nutgrass in the lawn, it is a tricky one to control. We don’t have a product in our range that is registered to target this weed that can be applied as a selective control.

The best thing to do is to paint on Zero Weedkiller onto the actual weed. can apply it with the Yates Weeding Brush. Please be careful not to get the product onto the lawn as it will kill the grass as well. This product is not residual in the soil.

Kind regards

Yates Horticulturalist
