Tough on Nutsedge, Gentle on Turfgrass

Contains halosulfuron-methyl, the active ingredient used in SedgeHammer®

Empero™ is a selective herbicide aimed at controlling nutsedge in turfgrasses and other non-crop sites without the damaging effects that other herbicides leave behind. It provides outstanding control of purple and yellow nutsedge as well as many stubborn broadleaf weeds like horsetail.

Empero starts working immediately on targeted weeds by stunting its growth, ultimately resulting in death of the weeds. Complete control typically occurs within 7 to 14 days depending on the weed size, species and growing conditions.
