Empero is a selective herbicide providing control of nutsedge in turf and landscaping. Empero is a post-emergent herbicide that controls both yellow and purple nutsedge while also controlling various other weeds and suppressing kyllinga. This product is safe to use on both cool and warm season grass types and has a short re-entry time, allowing use of your lawn once the product has dried. Applied midseason as nutsedge is in full growth, Empero is a great solution to the unsightly tall sedges in your lawn. When applied later in the season as nutsedge growth slows down, Empero provides great tuber control, helping to prevent the spread of nutsedge the following summer. This product is a great option to use in replacement of SedgeHammer and contains the same active ingredient.
-A selective herbicide that controls both Yellow and Purple nutsedge in turf and other non-crop sites.
-Works by stunting weed growth and ultimately causing death to the plant. Complete control of the plant usually occurs within 7 to 14 days of application, depending on size and species.
-Safe on cool-season and warm-season turf. Very gentle on well-established turf.
-Applications done as the plant starts to slow its growth in early fall can be beneficial in preventing larger outbreaks the next year. Each Nutsedge plant can produce up to 18 new tubers every year; applying as the plants top growth slows down affects the growth of these new tubers which is where the plant focuses its energy at this time.
-Also controls horsetail.
-Rain-fast within 4 hours and safe for re-entry by people and pets once application is dry.
-Same active ingredient that is found in Sedgehammer.
