Weed Control Program
Weed control products will kill or alter the normal growth of weeds. They can be divided into two main groupings: selective and non-selective. Selective weed control are those that control the targeted weeds without damaging any desirable turfgrass species. Non selective weed control kills all vegetation (including the grass) 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 individual categories. Pre emergence weed control are applied prior to germination and emergence of weeds. These are typically used for only controlling the 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 come in contact with 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 the soil. Post emergence weed control are usually foliar applied, whereas pre emergence weed control are applied to the soil. A foliar-applied weed control must contact and be absorbed by foliage, and is less effective if washed off the leaf surface by rain or irrigation. Soil applied weed control can be applied as either a liquid or granulars; they should be watered into the soil during or following application.
Micro-nutrients in the lawn and the importance of leaving the grass clipping behind when mowing
These are the nutrients that are necessary for turf growth in 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 lose soils in a lawn. 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 a plant. The result is iron chlorosis, which causes the 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 turf growth, especially if grass clippings are allowed to break down on the turf.
