Question:"I have a colonial bent lawn that is infested with a weed, a sample of which is enclosed. I think it might be one of the sedge family, and I wonder if you have any control methods for this particular type of weed?"
Source of Question:Ohio
Answer/Response:"The specimen of weed you sent to us is one of the common horse-tails. These plants are common in poor soil but are seldom serious pests in turf. They can ordinarily be controlled simply by the liberal use of fertilizers such as sulphate of ammonia, to give a quick growth of grass and force a rank growth of horse-tails which will be injured by the mowers."
Keywords:TIC Keywords: Equisetum arvense; Fertilizer recommendations; Weed control
