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

I wonder what the price tag for a 2 lb shaker can will be.

ALS inhibitor. Works through the soil. I have questions about how it plays with trees and shrubs with roots extending into treated areas unless its effect is strictly limited to sedges. Even the one that is supposed to be strictly limited to sedges has damaged plants. Sedgehammer.

It’ll be too expensive for at least 7 years
