Answer/Response:The weed specimen you sent to us is mouse-ear chickweed. If this weed is too well distributed to justify hand weeding it may be checked with sulfate of ammonia or other chemicals. This species, like other chickweeds, is likely to be very sensitive to arsenical poisoning and may often be checked by applications of arsenate of lead. A more certain method is to spray with sodium arsenite or arsenic acid using 3 to 4 ounces dissolved in 2 to 5 gallons of water to 1,000 square feet.
