45(2):288-292. Results may be seen that fall; however they are usually Rough (also called roughstalk) bluegrass (Poa trivialis) has a relatively limited adaptation as a turf species because of intolerance to heat, drought, and traffic.It is also very patchy in appearance and therefore does not perform well in mixtures. Poa Herbicide in Golf Turf Poa Control. Throughout the 14-day application process we seeded Kentucky bluegrass, aerated, and topdressed the playing surface. Re: Most effective poa trivialis control Post by Billybob » October 11th, 2015, 12:24 pm Can't give you a long term answer but I did wipe out triv this past spring with Velocity. Bispyribac-sodium, sulfosulfuron, and interseeding creeping bentgrass for long-term control of roughstalk bluegrass. Sci. might be better to manage these weeds to keep them alive during the summer and blend them It’s a lot like annual bluegrass (Poa annua), but with real stolons, none of the hype, and almost no effective chemical control strategies in cool-season turf. Roughstalked bluegrass, P. trivialis, is a less desirable turf species that does well in moist, shaded areas but lacks heat and drought tolerance and is generally considered a weed. This lawn weed is known for remaining green throughout the winter. Most research on management of this species focuses on promotion of the plants rather than control. Similar Species Fescue, Fine species Festuca spp. weeds on golf courses, but are now becoming a problem on higher mowed turf areas such as Reducing poa annua in lawns can be tricky, but it can be done. Poa The other two are Kentucky bluegrass, Poa pratensis, and annual bluegrass, Poa annua. Annual bluegrass (Poa annua) and rough bluegrass (Poa trivialis) are common Though multiple applications are always more effective on Poa trivialis, single applications at 1‐2 WAE were effective (Purdue 2007). However, we now know there are also perennial types of Poa annua that will After its introduction to a golf course, rough bluegrass usually spreads by vegetative propagules during aeration (Figure 1). Thompson, C., J. Fry, M. Kennelly, M. Sousek, and Z. Reicher. Description. It is best adapted to shady, moist, or over-watered sites, and Zac Reicher and Clark Throssell Rough Bluegrass is a perennial grassy weed that is also known as Roughstalk Bluegrass or by its scientific name, Poa trivialis. seeds. Rough bluegrass often may not decline severely in midsummer if water is not limited and if preventative fungicides are applied when environmental conditions favor disease development. Habitat. Ethofumesate is doi:10.2134/cftm2015.0213. Figure 4: The visual quality of rough bluegrass in Nebraska before treatment with a single glyphosate application in spring (A), midsummer (B), or late summer (C), and the control from each application when rated the following spring (below). Control Poa in overseeded winter turfgrasses, perennial ryegrass or roughstalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis) or in non-overseeded dormant bermudagrass by safely using preemergence or postemergence herbicides. Controlling rough bluegrass in a shady, damp locale likely is impossible, as it will outcompete other turfgrasses. The problem is — as with any weed — this is when control is most difficult. Provides PRE and POST control of Poa annua Controls both annual and perennial biotypes Controls herbicide-resistant Poa annua Controls Poa trivialis. Turfgrass Sci. (early-September) prior to Poa germination. It also details use of non-selective herbicides and the correct timing for use on this grass, along with reseeding the areas as the rough bluegrass is in decline from use of herbicides in spring. Understand, though, that even rough bluegrass that is fully green at the time of glyphosate application in fall may not be well controlled (Figure 4), and plan to implement control strategies over multiple years to control rough bluegrass. This technique may take many This method will work towards reducing poa annua in the lawn over time. So killing everything with glyphosate (click for sources) and reseeding is sometimes the only option. Poa trivialis. Description. Instead, it might be better to manage these weeds to keep them alive during the summer and blend them in with the rest of the lawn. Evaluation of selective herbicide combinations and paclobutrazol for rough bluegrass control. In shaded areas, or in areas that receive frequent rainfall, control will be more difficult because the cultural mechanisms for control already have been restricted. Cultural management and growing environments are most important to consider in controlling rough bluegrass. The difficulty arises in the fact that any herbicides that will kill these weed grasses will kill lawn grass as well. That's why a two-step approach to poa annua treatment may be necessary. Controlling rough bluegrass (Poa trivialis) May 18, 2017 Rough bluegrass (Poa trivialis) is a perennial, cool-season grass that is a problematic weed in cool-season turfs in the northern U.S.A. Instead, it Figure 2: Rough bluegrass can be difficult to distinguish from other species. For large infestations, consider beginning a renovation with Velocity applications in midsummer, followed by multiple glyphosate applications in late summer before seeding. Figure 3: Patches of rough bluegrass growing in a perennial ryegrass fairway during summer that exhibit grainy growth (insert) and poor mowing quality. The end of the overseeded grass: Transition processes, AIT Steven Spatafore’s journey to Pebble Beach, 2019 U.S. Open musings: highlights from the maintenance facility. Two or three applications of ethofumesate You may reach Cole at cole.thompson@unl.edu for more information. Although it’s difficult to hear, rough bluegrass is most consistently controlled with glyphosate followed by reseeding. Poa trivialis, roughstock bluegrass, and Poa annua, annual bluegrass, are both cool season grasses. If the problem is more severe, then kill it with Ortho® Grass B Gon® Garden Grass Killer. species during late fall Weed Technol. Bentgrass, Creeping Agrostis stolonifera Bluegrass, Annual Poa annua Herbicidal Control Options Preemergence: Dimethenamid-p Post Emergence: Bispyribac-sodium, Foramsulfuron, Sulfosulfuron, Trifloxysulfuron Please note: one or more of these active ingredients may exist in combination-type brand name products. In these situations, it’s often the poorer mowing quality associated with the decumbent growth of stolons that disturb turf stands (Figure 3). Treating poa annua can be tricky as seeds can lay dormant for years before growing. Working with rough bluegrass sometimes is tantamount to educating the public about its likelihood for alien abduction: Only those who’ve had a close encounter take notes, and everyone else thinks you should be medicated. Figure 1: Rough bluegrass regrowth from nodes on a stolon. Well-drained soils that are irrigated only to prevent severe stress of desirable species will make rough bluegrass less competitive, and should reduce infestations with time. Bentgrass, Creeping Agrostis stolonifera Bluegrass, Annual Poa annua Herbicidal Control Options Preemergence: Dimethenamid-p Post Emergence: Bispyribac-sodium, Foramsulfuron, Sulfosulfuron, Trifloxysulfuron Please note: one or more of these active ingredients may exist in combination-type brand name products. lighter colored than Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. Thus it may not be economically feasible or practical to attempt control. It also details use of non-selective herbicides and the correct timing for use on this grass, along with reseeding the areas as the rough bluegrass is in decline from use of herbicides in spring. 2010b. Here’s how to help control it: If only a few Poa annua plants are present, they can be removed by hand. However, control might not be economically feasible or practical and it might be better to attempt to manage these weeds to keep them alive during the summer. 2011. Poa trivialis, on the other hand, rarely produces a seedhead when mowed. Chemical Control Rutledge, J., D. Morton, D. Weisenberger, and Z. Reicher. One isolated study has reported r… Be aware that sanitation is important during aeration, vertical mowing and even mowing to limit unintentional propagation. Poa often dies in the heat of the summer (but may survive the John Wiley and Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ. We also tested the efficacy of various rates and combinations of Xonerate (amicarbazone; FMC) and Tenacity (mesotrione; Syngenta). 45(2):283-287. Appl. Poa annua is a winter annual that germinates in the late summer/early fall once The problem is that it can be difficult to distinguish from other bluegrasses or even perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) under growth regulation (Figure 2). applied between September and December are recommended per year. Roughstalked bluegrass, P. trivialis, is a less desirable turf species that does well in moist, shaded areas but lacks heat and drought tolerance and is generally considered a weed. Obviously, multiple strategies are required to effectively control rough bluegrass. Roughstalk bluegrass contamination in creeping bentgrass seed lots. Turfgrass Tolerance. Poa trivialis. in with the rest of the lawn. Velocity (bispyribac-sodium; Nufarm) is the only herbicide currently labeled for the selective control of rough bluegrass in cool-season turf. PoaConstrictor® is labeled for both pre-emergent and postemergent control of many annual grasses and broadleaves on ornamental turf such as golf courses, sod farms, parks, cemeteries and residential or commercial lawns. There is no quick and easy fix for weed grass problems, particularly when those weed grasses are t… Crop Forage Turfgrass Manage. Thus it may not be economically feasible or practical to attempt control. doi:10.1094/ATS-2011-0422-01-BR. and/or with a postemergence herbicide called ethofumesate (Prograss). Poa trivialis is much harder to control because it is perennial. but it must be applied by professionals only. One isolated study has reported reductions in small infestations of rough bluegrass seedlings with foliar Mg and Fe fertilization, but because there are no other reports of similar results it’s safe to consider this strategy ineffective. Alternatively, use glyphosate as part of a renovation strategy in late summer to early fall. 2006. Grass blades can look shiny. The repeated applications at the low labeled rate provided us with an excellent reduction of Poa annua, Poa trivialis, and Common Bermuda (on the practice football test area). Sci. ryegrass recommended for shady areas. Most preemergence herbicides on the market can be used in Poa control programs. Habitat. Much like Arnold Schwarzenegger in “The Terminator,” it will be back, with sequels. Certainty Turf Herbicide is easy and flexible to use and has excellent control of both purple and yellow nutsedge. Cultural management and growing environments are most important to consider in controlling rough bluegrass. Poa Annua, or annual bluegrass, is one of the most common grassy weeds in the United States. In: Casler, M. D. and R. R. Duncan, eds. grows well under short days and cool conditions, and it will out-compete all other turf Verified Purchase. Roughstalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis) is a cool-season perennial grass often considered a weed.Light green in color it is most obvious in the early spring when it grows more rapidly than other turfgrasses. Hurley, R. H. 2003. This is the only report of rough bluegrass reduction with a plant growth regulator (PGR), and it’s unlikely that any PGR will control rough bluegrass on its own. In work in Nebraska and Kansas from 2011 to 2013, the most consistent control of rough bluegrass was observed with spring-applied glyphosate (69 percent to 99 percent control), whereas glyphosate applied in mid- or late summer controlled rough bluegrass 14 percent to 91 percent or 42 percent to 94 percent, respectively. Combined with a non-ionic surfactant, Certainty Turf Herbicide attacks nutsedge through broadcast applications or spot treatments. Despite research and outreach efforts, this troublesome grass still has a somewhat anonymous reputation. Others have investigated seedling safety following Velocity applications, with no damage to creeping bentgrass, Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) or perennial ryegrass if these species are seeded at least two weeks following treatment. Appl. Be sure to check the most current label for specifics before using Velocity or other pesticides. But even this is no easy task. Application timing is very important, so herbicides must be applied in early fall According to the label, four applications at 6 oz./A on a 14- to 21-day interval are allowed. A study from the University of Nebraska details ways to reduce Poa trivialis which allows other grasses to out compete this grassy weed. It’s a lot like annual bluegrass (Poa annua), but with real stolons, none of the hype, and almost no effective chemical control strategies in cool-season turf. Prevent Poa from maturing and inhibit seedhead … Purdue University Turfgrass Specialists. Its tendency to yellow in the heat of summer makes it undesirable in some turf applications, and most information on control is based on these applications. This is a postemergence herbicide that will selectively control annual bluegrass (Poa annua), roughstalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis) and numerous broadleaf weeds that are growing within certain species of established turfgrass of golf course, sod farm. Poa Constrictor Herbicide. control. bluegrass flowers and produces seed over several months and at any mowing height. It is part of the grass family. Tolerant to established cool- and warm-season turfgrasses Slow Action. may offer the best chance of control of Poa trivialis. Well-drained soils that are irrigated only to prevent severe stress of desirable species will make rough bluegrass less competitive, and should reduce infestations with time. It looks very similar to Kentucky bluegrass, except it is a lighter shade of green, has a shallower root system, and develops a short seed head early in the season. Then apply Velocity as soon as one week following seeding — at least with creeping bentgrass — to limit rough bluegrass reestablishment. The plant growth regulator Trimmit (paclobutrazol; Syngenta) also didn’t reduce the coverage of established rough bluegrass in this experiment. Provides PRE and POST control of Poa annua Controls both annual and perennial biotypes Controls herbicide-resistant Poa annua Controls Poa trivialis. Email ( required; will not be published ). Hort. Send corrections, suggestions, and comments to danw@purdue.edu. Response of seedling roughstalk bluegrass and creeping bentgrass to bispyribac-sodium or sulfosulfuron. Tolerant to established cool- and warm-season turfgrasses Slow Action. It’s important to note that control with Velocity still is ultimately variable. There is more work to be done to improve cultural control strategies for rough bluegrass. Treating rough bluegrass with a nonselective herbicide in late summer aligns well with recommended fall seeding for cool-season grasses, but spring applications offer the best control. Poa annua is The applications should Chemical control of annual bluegrass can be attempted with either preemergence herbicides The seedlings grow throu… Poa annua grass can cause problems in lawns. A second application will be needed in Control of Poa Most research on management of this species focuses on promotion of the plants rather than control. Rutledge, J., D. Weisenberger, and Z. Reicher. 2016. Reducing populations of annual bluegrass and roughstalk bluegrass in creeping bentgrass fairways: A nutritional approach. Lycan, D. W and S. E. Hart. Turfgrass Sci. Its tendency to yellow in the heat of summer makes it undesirable in some turf applications, and most information on control is based on these applications. In any case, rough bluegrass most often isn’t noticed or even considered before its establishment is widespread. be approximately four weeks apart. Poa trivialis is much harder to control because it is perennial. Annual Velocity may cause phytotoxicity to desired species, but it’s usually short-lived, with recovery typically seen by two weeks after the last treatment. The seed may lie dormant in the soil for many years before germinating. I’ll show you how I do it. But keep in mind that poa annua seeds are tough and can survive many seasons without germinating. It is very common in meadows and pastures throughout Britain. Control of Poa trivialisby Velocity 17.6SG when applied over newly‐seeded Poa trivialis and rated 8WAE. Poa annua and poa trivialis are two such weeds that develop in the fall and winter, potentially crowd out baby fescue grass that is also trying to develop just after germination, and throw many homeowners and turf management professionals for a loop when it comes to their control. Additionally, improved cultivars have been intentionally planted in shaded sites or unintentionally planted by contaminated seed. A) Rough bluegrass (left) and annual bluegrass (right). soil temperatures fall below 70o F. Seedlings mature in the fall, overwinter in Weed grasses are among the most difficult weeds to treat and control in lawns. Plus they both tend to However, we do think PGRs improve the mowing quality of rough bluegrass and darken its color similar to that of perennial ryegrass or Kentucky bluegrass, potentially masking its presence (Figure 2). Multiple strategies are required for control because there is only one herbicide currently labeled for selective post-emergence control of rough bluegrass in cool-season turf, and because even its efficacy can be unpredictable. most of the world and Poa trivialis seeds or stolons can germinate after lying Cool-season turfgrass reseeding intervals for bispyribac-sodium. Refer to label recommendations for specific instructions. observed the following spring. In particular, it has post-emergent control over POA TRIVIALIS and POA ANNUA (to a lesser amt). Velocity also may be applied after seeding, and has been shown safe on spring- or fall-seeded creeping bentgrass as early as seven days following emergence when treated at rates up to 6.0 oz./A. Naturalized popu- Poa annua. and early spring. Katana even works in cooler temperatures where competitive products may struggle. A study from the University of Nebraska details ways to reduce Poa trivialis which allows other grasses to out compete this grassy weed. Many researchers have shown both its efficacy with multiple applications and the potential for rough bluegrass recovery that ultimately limits control. Kills poa annua in centipede. We believe control varied among locations because of cultivar differences and differences in maximum temperatures following application. 2014. Roughstalk bluegrass (Poa trivialis) is a cool-season perennial grass often considered a weed.Light green in color it is most obvious in the early spring when it grows more rapidly than other turfgrasses. Control Poa trivialis is used as a turf grass, often overseeded with Bermuda grass. to 12 lbs./1,000 ft2 (with 1 percent rough bluegrass seed by weight), but seeding rates ultimately had no effect on minimizing rough bluegrass. Our desirable species also are more tolerant to traffic than rough bluegrass, so don’t be afraid to get physical. Photos by: Zac Reicher (Figure 1), Cole Thompson (Figures 2,3 & 4). Controlling rough bluegrass in a shady, damp locale likely is impossible, as it will outcompete other turfgrasses. Note reduced control when treated in late summer (C), even though visual quality was similar to that treated in spring (A). An individual plant is capable of producing more than 360 viable Both of these grasses are considered weeds because they are If you enjoyed this article, subscribe to Golfdom to receive more articles just like it. But make no mistake; rough bluegrass is out there, lurking. As temperatures rise in the summer its growth will slow and it often goes semi-dormant until cooler temperatures and rainfall return in the autumn. 3. They can turn brown and go dormant in the heat of the summer. Thompson, C., M. Sousek, Z. Reicher, J. Fry, and M. Kennelly. Katana ® Turf Herbicide kills Poa annua, ryegrass, tall fescue, and the toughest broadleaf weeds in turf. Tenacity, according to all the sources I have found, is a farm chemical for use in fields. Bell, G., E. Odorizzi, and T. Danneberger. Control of Poa trivialisby  Velocity 17.6SG when applied over newly‐seeded Poa trivialis and rated 8WAE. Description. Rough bluegrass control is possible by persistently implementing a combination of these strategies. thin and die out during the heat and drought of August in Indiana. Pages 67-75 in: Turfgrass: Biology, Genetics, and Breeding. For smaller infestations, consider spot treating with glyphosate followed by reseeding or the physical removal of rough bluegrass followed by spot sodding. Alternatively, utilize multiple spot applications of Velocity beginning in spring to midsummer, and interseed with creeping bentgrass, Kentucky bluegrass or perennial ryegrass beginning no sooner than two weeks following the last treatment. There is some current research on new herbicides that can suppress roughstock bluegrass but there’s nothing selective enough that will kill it and not your lawn grass. These herbicides and herbicide combinations were ineffective in controlling rough bluegrass. Its preferred habitat is moist, sheltered places. Poa annua should be removed before it flowers and produces seed. Poa Though multiple applications are always more effective on Poa trivialis, single applications at 1‐2 WAE were effective (Purdue 2007). Nonselective control with glyphosate or glufosinate followed by reseeding doi:10.2134/ATS-2013-0044-BR. This will keep the poa annua seeds from sprouting. Hort. in lawns is difficult, and relies on both cultural and chemical control. Poa trivialis is a perennial grass that spreads by stolons forming light green patches in the turf. Poa trivialis rough bluegrass This plant can be weedy or invasive according to the authoritative sources noted below.This plant may be known by one or more common names in … introduced as a contaminant in turf seed and seed producers growers have since Two theories persist about how Poa trivialis is live through the stress of the summer, primarily in northern IN. and . Poa trivialis rough bluegrass This plant can be weedy or invasive according to the authoritative sources noted below.This plant may be known by one or more common names in … dormant for many years, thus contaminating a turf stand. The university suggests pulling Poa Trevialis. Control of Poa annua and Poa trivialis in lawns is difficult, if not impossible. Control is with Roundup or 2 to 3 applications of sulfosulfuron … In this research, creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) was seeded two weeks after the final application, which increased long-term control after rough bluegrass was thinned from treatment with Velocity.
