    I think most people would be surprised how small the seeds that ducks consume actually are. I know I was!

    SO true!


    Light seeds such as the sedge seeds often float for a few days before sinking. Here they are covering the surface.

    What is seeded in with the sedge?Are you just wanting to kill sedge ?
    Basagran is labeled for sedge and wont hurt grasses.We use a lot of Basagran in our milo and corn with decent results....Jim

    Either the yellow or the red root deal. The people who owned the house before us tried to use feed sacks as weed barrier. It is pea gravel over feed sacks and the sedge is coming up through it.

    There is only one other thing planted in the area and I could care less if I kill it.


    I have pulled them up before and found very few "nuts" on the roots. Might be because they get ripped off coming up through the feed sacks or maybe they just aren't making many. In either case they look like little hazelnuts or peanuts minus the shell attached to the roots.

    To control ragweed, and broad leaf weeds can you spray Basagran on growing Milo plants?
