Abstract/Contents:Profiles annual bluegrass, Poa annua, describing attempts to control the grass. Discusses potential reasons why it is so abundant and persistent, stating that "soil from an older green with an active population of annual bluegrass contains as many as 210,000 seeds/square meter, or approximately 19,500 seeds/square foot. This seedbank is one of the reasons that annual bluegrass has such an advantage over creeping bentgrass, which generally does not produce seed at low mowing heights." Also discusses Poa annua's genetic diversity, stating that it "can be an annual or a perennial...It can be a bunch grass or a stoloniferous grass. It can take on varying textures and shades of green within the space of a few yards." Discusses potential chemical controls, including ethofumesate, flurprimidol and paclobutrazol. Concludes that "Poa annua is simply too genetically diverse for the development of that single magic bullet that will completely solve the problem."
