Abstract/Contents:Discusses possible methods of Poa annua (annual bluegrass) control, stating that annual bluegrass "continues to be the most prolific winter annual grass weed superintendents fight, especially when trying to control it in another cool-season grass such as overseeded perennial ryegrass or Poa trivialis (roughstalk bluegrass)." Profiles Poa annua, stating that "the annual biotype...begins to germinate when daytime temperatures consistently drop into the mid-70s F [Fahrenheit] (~24 C [Celsius]) and nighttime temperatures are in the mid-50s F (~13 C) for several consecutive days in late summer and early fall." Suggests that "for bermudagrass greens overseeded with Poa trivialis, the Rubigan 1AS (fenarimol, Gowan Co.) program is still best." Also discusses potential control options on bermudagrass fairways. Presents plant growth regulators (PGRs) as potential methods of controlling Poa annua. Also discusses potential methods for developing a Poa annua control program.
