Abstract/Contents:Discusses use of seashore paspalum, which is not listed on many of herbicide product labels. Briefly describes the characteristics of seashore paspalum. States that "seashore paspalum produces a high quality turfgrass with fertility requirements that are less than that of bermudagrass or St. Augustinegrass". Lists some advantages of seashore paspalum such as: that it grows well with potable and recycled water; requires relatively low fertility inputs to produce a dark green turf; tolerates a wide range of soil pH; excellent water tolerance; and etc., and some disadvantages including: poor shade tolerance; low mowing requirements; tendency of thatchy; and limited date on nematode. Asserts that weed management in seashore paspalum may be more difficult than some other species because seashore paspalum tolerance to herbicides is not known well. Presents the two-year research to determine the tolerance of seachore paspalum to herbicides for weed control. Presents results which show that several herbicides commonly used for weed control in turfgrass are tolerated by seashore paspalum. Concludes that "be sure to check the product label before applying any pesticide to be sure the turf species is listed".
