Abstract/Contents:"Pre-emerge treatments appear to be worth further study. The results in 1955 at Ames indicate this. The value of the phenyl mercury compounds applied during the two leaf stage has been amply demonstrated. Potassium cyanate applied during the seed head stage of development will reduce seed production. Where crab grass has 'taken over' a turfgrass area, lawns in particular, drastic steps are necessary in order to restore a desirable turf. Our 1955 results with the methyl arsonates severely burned the treated plots and the lawns which were included in the tests, but this season's crab grass seed crop was destroyed. Rains in September brought the blue grass back rapidly and while showing some thinning out, was making a satisfactory recovery in all the plots and lawn areas treated. A sensible fertilizer program to stimulate blue grass and build a firm, tight and resilient sod is definitely indispensable in restoring a weed infested turfgrass area."
