Weed Control Treatments
Weed control products kill or alter the normal growth of weeds. They can be divided into two main groups: selective and non-selective. Selective weed control are those that control the target weed(s) without damaging any desirable turfgrass species. Non selective weed control kill all vegetation (including turfgrass) and are used in lawn renovation or on weeds that are not able to be controlled by selective weed control. Weed control can be further divided into pre emergence and post-emergence categories. Pre emergence weed control are applied prior to germination and emergence of weeds. These are typically used for controlling annual weeds. Post-emergence weed control are used for controlling weeds that have already emerged from the soil. They are either contact or systemic in nature. Post emergence-contact weed control affect only those plant parts that they contact and are not translocated to other portions of the plant. Post emergence-systemic weed control are translocated throughout the plant; hence they are effective in controlling perennial weeds that can generate new foliage from underground vegetative structures. Weed control can be applied to foliage or soil. Post emergence weed control are usually foliar applied, whereas pre emergence weed control are soil applied. A foliar-applied weed control must contact and be absorbed by foliage, and is less effective if washed off the leaf surface by rainfall or irrigation. Soil-applied weed control can be applied as either liquids or granulars; they should be watered into the soil during or following application.
Micro-nutrients in the lawn and the importance of mulching your grass clipping when mowing
These are nutrients that are necessary for turf growth in very small amounts and are sometimes referred to as trace elements. Micro-nutrients are iron, manganese, zinc, copper, boron, molybdenum, and chlorine. Deficiencies are more likely to occur in sandy more loose soils. With the exception of iron, the addition of micro-nutrients is usually not necessary or very beneficial. In alkaline soils, iron binds to soil particles and becomes unavailable to the plant. The result is iron chlorosis, which causes yellowing of turfgrass blades. If the soil pH is kept within the proper range for the grass there is little chance that a micro-nutrient deficiency would affect the growth of turf, especially if grass clippings are allowed to break down on the turf.
