Abstract/Contents:Several commercially available and experimental herbicides were evaluated for preemergence control of smooth crabgrass in a two-year-old established turf of Adelphi and Kenblue Kentucky bluegrass. "In early April, the plot area was vertically mowed and core aerated in order to expose some surface soil. Although this area had previously been infested with crabgrass, it was again seeded with two pounds each of smooth crabgrass and goosegrass. The initial treatments were applied on 5/10/84. The turf was mowed at 1 1/2" height and nitrogen was applied at 1 lb N/1000 ft2 in June and August. The 22 treatments with 3 replications were applied to 6' X 10' plots with 3' alleys. Throughout the test, none of the goosegrass seed germinated and only a small infestation of smooth crabgrass occurred." Results are provided in a table.
