Managing Crabgrass in Turf
With these rains the lawn is beginning to grow and the weeds are not far behind. Some of the earliest emerging broadleaf weeds have begun to emerge. The biggest problem with weeds in turfgrass is reduced aesthetic value, although some weeds can out compete turfgrass when management is reduced. Smooth and large crabgrass, yellow foxtail, and annual bluegrass are the most frequent annual grass weeds in turfgrass.
