Abstract/Contents:"It is not unusual for lawn care operators (LCOs) to obtain new properties in late summer that are heavily infested with weeds.ˆThese lawns are often centipedegrass (most popular lawn grown by homeown+*.ers in Louisiana) infested with common lespedeza (Kummerowia striata). Common lespedeza is a dark green, mat-forming summer annual legume with small trifoliate leaves. ˆThe weed grows close to the ground and is not easily cut by mower blades, especially as the plants mature. ˆMature common lespedeza stems become rigid as plants begin flowering in September southern Louisiana.ˆLCOs are reporting difficulty managing late season common lespedeza with several broadleaf herbicides that are commonly used in the lawn care industry. In order to provide effective control options for LCOs, a field experiment was conducted at the Burden Research Center in Baton Rouge, LA in 2012 to evaluate late season common lespedeza management options. ˆHerbicides evaluated included:ˆ
