There does seem to be some indication that salt will control nutgrass. Hopefully several people will try table salt, sea salt, baking soda and potassium bicarbonate on nutgrass infested bermudagrass. Use each in different areas at 1 ounce per gallon of water. Too much salt will obviously foul up the soil so go easy on this idea. Potassium bicarb might be the best choice. This idea will work best in bermudagrass because it is so salt tolerant. Use even more care if you try this idea in beds. Give us some reports.

Hop over to the Lawns forum. We're already talking about Howard's suggestion. Here's a shortcut.

I heard Howard mention this on the radio in San Antonio last weekend so I started a thread to try to gather info.
