	While I lived in TX, I was plagued with nutgrass in several areas.
I bought Basagran and followed the directions on the label.  It killed the
nutgrass, but it also killed the soil.  Absolutely nothing would grow in
the area were Basagran had been applied.  The chemical agent(s) in
Basagran were active in the soil for years!  Better to use the old
reliable method of 'Stoop and Yank!'
