Abstract/Contents:"In comparison with several materials 2, 4-dichlorophenoxyethyl benzoate (sesin) appeared promising in 1954 trials for the control of crabgrass (Digitaria spp.) in Kentucky bluegrass turf. Rates of 2, 4 and 6 lb/A of active ingredient were applied just as crabgrass emerged. Repeated treatments of 4 and 6 lb/A on April 23, May 29, and June 22 reduced the stand of crabgrass to less than 1% of the stand of grasses as compared to 10% for adjoining check areas. Single applications of 6 lb/A gave equally good results when the plots were watered just prior to and following the treatments to encourage immediate germination of crabgrass seeds in the soil. No apparent injury to Kentucky bluegrass was noted."
