Bahiagrass Alert

August 20, 2007
by Fred Yelverton

Weather conditions have a profound impact on the abundance, or scarcity, of certain weed species.  During wet weather, weeds like sedges tend to be more common.  However, during dry weather, other plants tend to predominate.  Obviously, it has been very dry in NC this summer.  As a result, bahiagrass is very common and can be seen in many home lawns, golf courses, athletic fields and other turfgrass areas.  It should be pointed out that bahiagrass is very difficult to control this time of year and probably should not be attempted this late in the summer.  However, effective control can be obtain in May and June.  For bahiagrass facts and control measures view bahiagrass information sheet under related links.
