Default Nutsedge in Clover Food Plots

We have some very nice clover food plots and have used Clethodim and 2,4 db to control grasses and broadleafs. We are having many large patches of nutsedge forming and none of the above are effective at eradicating nutsedge. Any recommendations?

Basagran or sedgehammer.

I am about to do the same as soon as these hurricanes get gone.

I thought those two would get your clover?? I would say as late as it is let it go and deal with it next year. Mow it if anything

Basagran is labeled specifically for use in clover. Sedgehammer will stunt legumes, but they will recover.

Thanks randywallace.

These clover plots are great and have been active for about 4 years. The deer love them and we see bigger and healthier deer.
The downside to clover is that it does not get tilled up each year. The tilling cuts up the underground root system of nutsedge. Without annual tilling, the nutsedge populates and gets worse each year.
