Abstract/Contents:"Long term weed control in turf depends on the competitive ability of the turf species and on reducing vegetation gaps. Methods to improve the competitiveness of the turf and decrease the size and number of gaps should make the site less susceptible to weed invasion. From an integrated pest management standpoint, cultural practices such as proper fertilization to encourage a vigorously growing turf as well as overseeding to reduce gaps are better approaches than use of herbicides to restore the turf once invaded. We conducted a study in southern California to evaluate whether 3 herbicide and fertilizer combination products applied at label recommended rates and times with and without overseeding would imrpve competitiveness and reduce weed invasion in low maintenance tall fescue turf. We evaluated turf quality and weed pressue over one year after the study was initiated. At the last two evaluation dates (April, 2007) only the treatments that included herbicides had lower species diversity that the other treatments. In low maintenance turf areas, using solely cultural controls such as fertilizing and overseeding will not control an established weed population."
