Abstract:
Poa annua (annual bluegrass) is a major weed problem in winter turfs. It is a cosmopolitan and well adapted weed in most turfgrass settings. Cultural management programs to control or eliminate Poa annua are either limited or unsuccessful. Sulfentrazone herbicide was applied to perennial ryegrass turf (as overseeded bermudagrass) which had high levels of Poa annua infestation (45%-75%) at 0.125, 0.250 and 0.375 lb. AI/A. There was essentially a limited response of Poa annua to Sulfentrazone at these rates when applied on March 7, 1997. EMBARK LITE (Mefluidide) was applied once at 0.125 lb. AI/A and caused some initial discoloration to the turf at 10 DAT. At 25 DAT percent control of Poa annua (seed heads) reached 90% or greater which declined to 58% on April 15 (40 DAT). Turfgrass color was enhanced from the single application of Mefluidide at 25 and 40 DAT on golf course rough turf maintained at a mowing height of 1.50 inches. Sulfentrazone exhibited minimal or no effect on Poa annua when applied as a post emergence treatment.
