Nutsedge infestation in a pasture.

Asked September 10, 2019, 11:55 AM EDT

Good Afternoon!
We have a infestation of Nutsedge that is taking over our pasture. We graze cattle and they won't eat it and it is out competing the grasses that they do like. I believe that it was brought on to the property by some hay that we bought in the last couple years. We want to kill it and improve the pasture but do not want to spray herbicides such as Round-up/Glyphosate or Dicamba. Do you have any suggestion for more natural ways to manage this problem? What do you think of flame weeding?
Thank you for your time!
Sincerely,
Grace

Hi Grace,

Nutsedge is a tough plant to control. Please call the Highland County Extension Office at 937-393-1918. Depending on the size of the issue, I have a few recommendations.
