Abstract/Contents:Describes the basic biology of yellow nutsedge and ongoing work at UNL (University of Nebraska-Lincoln) to identify strategies for management and control. Details identification keys for yellow nutsedge through its physical properties. Discusses the seasonal life cycle and overall lifespan of yellow nutsedge. Explains that uncontrolled yellow nutsedge growth can result in non-uniform turf and emergence "through bark or rock mulches and landscape fabric in shrub plantings and vegetable and flower beds." Suggests that shading, raising mowing height, applying mulch, and applying herbicides may help to eradicate yellow nutsedge. Lists various herbicides for potential use on yellow nutsedge.
