Abstract/Contents:Profiles crabgrass and presents potential control methods, including preemergence herbicides. States that "monitoring...soil temperatures will aid in the timing of the application of preemergence herbicides." Suggests that "the initial preemergence application for crabgrass-species control should be in late February or early March in west Tennessee and mid-March to early April in east Tennessee." Discusses research on crabgrass preemergence control and suggests not developing a "preemergence crabgrass program that relies on dithiopyr to provide postemergence control." Provides "steps to developing a preemergence program", including "choose a preemergence herbicide"; "apply in a timely manner"; and "have a backup plan. Concludes that "taking a preventative approach - such as using a preemergence herbicide - is often the most effective means of weed management."
