Colonial and Highland bentgrass
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate one and two applications of various herbicides for the control of English Daisy (Bellis perennis) growing in lawns.
Materials & Methods
Previous work reported by Crystal Fricker at Pure Seed Testing Inc. demonstrated that it is possible to develop tall fescues and fine fescues that have relatively good tolerance to low rates of glyphosate. This trial is part of an ongoing effort to evaluate tolerance of tall fescues and other grasses to glyphosate at rates that are effective in controlling annual bluegrass.
