The new Vexis Herbicide Granular from PBI-Gordon Corp. is formulated to provide lawn care professionals with targeted, postemergent control of sedges and kyllinga species, including purple and yellow nutsedge, cockscomb and false green kyllinga.

Sold in a 2-pound shaker can and in a 15-pound bag, the granular formulation helps reduce off-target drift and volatility compared to products currently available. It will be available for sale in early 2020. 

“Control of sedges and kyllinga is a common problem most lawn care professionals deal with during the growing season,” said Jay Young, herbicide product manager for PBI-Gordon. “Vexis Herbicide Granular offers highly targeted and reliable control of these weeds, which dramatically reduces callbacks and improves customer satisfaction.”

For use on residential and commercial sites, sports facilities and golf course tees, fairways and roughs, Vexis is based on a new proprietary active ingredient Pyrimisulfan.

Vexis Herbicide Granular can be used on a wide variety of cool- and warm-season turfgrasses — Kentucky bluegrass, fine and tall fescues, perennial ryegrass, bentgrass, Bermudagrass, bahiagrass, buffalograss, kikuyugrass, seashore paspalum, St. Augustinegrass (including improved varieties) and zoysiagrass.
