Gavin -- I have tried without success to obtain Poast, and have been
told that it is no longer produced. However, BASAGRAN can be applied
over iris and does kill grass, including, particularly, yellow sedge. I
have done it this year, and it succeeded where VANTAGE did not. You must
be very careful, however, to use the right mixture according to the
directions. Otherwise, you can damage your plants.
