Abstract/Contents:"Bermudagrass, although often used as a desirable turf species, is also an aggressive perennial weed. This is particularly true in warm temperate climates where bermudagrass is well adapted and can rapidly invade cool season turf swards. Bermudagrass invaded areas tend to have poorer color, particularly during the winter months. Current renovation procedures for the removal of bermudagrass infested areas are to fumigate and replant with cool season species (perennial ryegrass, tall fescue, or Kentucky bluegrass) or to treat with glyphosate and replant. Both methods require the loss of use of the turf area while the desirable cool season species are reestablished and reinvasion with bermudagrass usually can reoccur. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the use of postemergence herbicides, applied in sequential treatments to weaken and gradually reduce the bermudagrass allowing reseeding and reestablishment of the desirable cool season species without loss of use of the area. Fenoxaprop (0.19 and 0.38 lb/A) and triclopyr (0.5 and 1 lb/A) were applied alone and in combination as single and as four sequential applications. Neither herbicide was effective as a single application but when applied as sequential treatments, they reduced bermudagrass and allowed reestablishment of the desirable cool season species. Combinations of these herbicides were also effective and controlled a broader spectrum of other weeds. Fenoxaprop reduced the vigor of young emerging perennial ryegrass at the University of California, Riverside but did not affect tall fescue at the University of California, Davis."
