Abstract/Contents:Discusses possible methods of crabgrass control, stating that "large hairy crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis) and small smooth crabgrass (Digitaria ischaemum) are annual species frequently found in Ohio...Another annual grass often confused with crabgrass is goosegrass or sliver crabgrass (Eleusine indica)." Suggests that "crabgrass can be partially or completely controlled by at least three methods: good cultural practices, pre-emergence herbicides, and post-emergence herbicides. A cultural program that encourages good growth during the spring and autumn seasons retards crabgrass invasion. Close mowing and light frequent watering create conditions ideal for crabgrass growth. Adequate fertilization produces a dense turf that resists crabgrass invasion."
