Here's a link to a story about a newly EPA approved herbicide named Vexis. I'll post this in the Warm Season forum, too.

Thanks, Chris. Sounds like primarily a post-emergent to target Sedges. Perhaps it will eventually become available for residential lawn use. Any other info?
Front: Northern mix - mostly TTTF, KBG, TTPR. Back: Firecracker and Bullseye TTTF with America, Rugby 2, Bewitched KBG. Upper Side: Mostly TTPR, KBG. Lower Side: similar to front. Low-input: TF/FF, KBG, PR. Always seeding somewhere or fighting Triv.

@Green

No other info, yet. I received an e-mail at work today with the link and thought that it would be good to put it up for discussion. I like that it's labeled for both cool season and warm season turfgrass. Once the EPA approves it, each state has to review and approve it for use in that particular state. It could be awhile until it's approved in many states, and it's no guarantee that it will be approved in my state, much less approved for residential use. We'll see. I'll check the database for NY, when I get a chance.

Seems like there has been a lot of focus on Sedges lately.
Thats a good thing.
