This forum is probably a better place to get advice from Baldo:-

they are an evil barstud of a weed esp in lawns...there is no herbicide that will kill them without hurting turf that l know of. And you need several repeat applications over a couple of months as they drop their pups when you spray them....so you wait for the pups to come up & spray them etc etc

Destiny will kill it, but it is not cheap at over $500 a box 

 

It works very well I have made a lot of money out of getting rid of onion weed

 

Maybe a few keen guys could buy a box and split it up , it comes in packets

You can use Halosulfuron-methyl.

 

It is the active ingredient in Amgrow Sedgehammer, Sempra, and Apparent Halosulfron.

 

It is a selective herbicide for nutgrass and Mullumbomby couch, but works just as well on onion weed, and shouldn't bother the other grasses or plants (but always be careful anyways, with both to overspray and personal safety).

 

It is highly concentrated and also expensive. I picked up a 100gm container of the Apparent brand from www.catch.com.au for a very good price. For spot spraying, you only use 1.3grams in 10 litres of water per 100sq meters. Online is generally cheaper then what you can buy from Bunnings. 

 

It takes take some time for you to see the results, but it does work. Also too, it works better with a non-ionic wetting agent too.

 

You may need to get some digital scales that can do very light weighing. Just beware if a cop pulls you over when you have the scales in your vehicle with a small trace of white powder on them, you may need to be doing some explaining.

Hi All,

 

New to the forum, and have a grass invading my relatively new and healthy Buffalo lawn.

 

I think it's Couch, but am not 100% sure so have taken some photos, and can take a few more of the undesireable grass up close tonight.

 

Any advice on how to get rid of this would be greatly appreciated.

 

I've read that over summer the buffalo will out compete other grasses... but this just doesn't seem to be happening.

 

THanks in advance!

just a reminder

most publicly available info on chemicals you can buy can be found here
