Abstract/Contents:Discusses potential methods to control Poa annua, including the use of bispyrabic-sodium. Details the injurious effects of a severe winter from 2004-05 on Poa annua, noting several practices that were utilized to assist turf recovery. Indicates that some courses may have to reconstruct their greens, adding that "the new greens can have little to no Poa annua for the first several years." Provides recommendations on maintenance practices that may help limit the presence of Poa annua. Suggests applying ice to kill Poa annua or to apply thin layers of water on the turf, explaining that "the idea would be to have the ice kill minor infestations, ideally scattered plants, of Poa annua from which the surrounding bentgrass would readily grow over without the need for any overseeding."
