Selectively Killing Weeds in Southern Turf

The elimination of weeds in highly sensitive southern grasses (Bermuda, Zoysia, St Augustine etc.) can seem like an impossible task. If you have a lawn with southern turf you understand how difficult it is to selectively kill the weeds and not your lawn. We have been testing Image Nutsedge Killer. It is a post emergent selective herbicide for use on southern turf grass and selected ornamentals. Our testing has have provided very favorable results. Here is why it works: Image has a special patented formula that starves weeds to death! Image Nutsedge Killer works when the liquid is absorbed by the foliage and directly through the root system of weeds. With rapid uptake via the root system or through foliage absorption, IMAGE Herbicide works to inhibit the production of certain enzymes necessary for photosynthesis (a plant's life-sustaining process). Without photosynthesis, weeds can not grow and literally starve to death. Image Nutsedge Killer is labeled for use on Bermuda grass, St. Augustine grass, Centipede grass, and Zoysia Grass, as well as many ground covers and ornamental shrubs.
