Abstract/Contents:"Two lawns which were completely overrun with crabgrass were sprayed with Stoddard solvent at 80 gallons per acre in early July. One week later the spraying was repeated in order to kill the base of large clumps of crabgrass. Complete destruction of all crabgrass was obtained and within two weeks from the first spraying bluegrass and chewings fescue had started to recover. A reseeding with fescue was made and a perfect stand was obtained. No residual effects from the petroleum were observed and no further emergence of crabgrass occurred."
