Nematode Control as a Rescue Treatment for Sod Turfgrass of Zoysiagrass, Bermudagrass and St. Augustinegrass on Sod Farms
For Nematode control prior to harvesting/cutting turfgrass sod on sod farms, it is recommended to make a broadcast application 1-2 months prior to harvesting or cutting turfgrass sod. Make an application of Quali-Pro NIMITZ Pro G Nematicide at 120 – 240 pounds per acre to the established turfgrass sod. It is required to irrigate the sod following application with an adequate amount of water (generally 0.25-0.5 inches). For low cut or fairway height turfgrass sod to improve the product penetration to the root zone and soil, it is recommended that the broadcast application should follow aerification (1-10 days) prior to application. Quali-Pro NIMITZ Pro G Nematicide has been shown to provide effective control of nematodes and increase root tensile strength of newly harvested sod.
