Abstract/Contents:"Preemergence herbicides used for crabgrass (Digitaria sanquinalis L.) control have given partial control of goosegrass (Elusine indica L.). However, goosegrass control has been more variable from one year to the next. Goosegrass emerges later than crabgrass in the spring of the year. Experiments were designed to evaluate (a) time of application, (b) repeated treatments, (c) rotation of herbicides, (d) relationship between annual bluegrass (Poa annua L.) control and goosegrass control with herbicides, (e) groundcover with turfgrass on goosegrass control, (f) preemergence compared to postemergence treatments, and (g) new herbicides for goosegrass control. preemergence herbicides gave better results in repeated or split applications to control both crabgrass and goosegrass. Treatment early for crabgrass control was too early to obtain goosegrass control except for the new herbicides, oxidiazon and Sward (Eli Lilly and Company, EL-131). Controlling annual bluegrass appeared to allow bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon L.) to give superior early spring growth which competed with goosegrass. Excessive annual bluegrass populations reduced bermudagrass groundcover during spring and permitted open areas for goosegrass germination and establishment. Rotation of herbicides gave simular [similar] results to repeated treatments during early and late spring. Oxadiazon and Sward were superior preemergence herbicides for goosegrass control either alone or in rotation with other preemergence herbicides. Postemergence DSMA required repeated treatments and intervals of 14 days or less to obtain satisfactory goosegrass control."
