Goosegrass (Eleusine indica) has been a common weed in golf course turfgrasses for many years. This weed is common throughout the world but is much more common in tropical, subtropical, and temperate climates. In frost-free environments, goosegrass adheres to a perennial growth habit that renders preemergent strategies ineffective. Of particular concern, goosegrass seems to be increasing in traditional warm climates but is also increasing in cooler climates. In this 60-minute webinar, Fred Yelverton, Ph.D., explains that as a highly variable species, goosegrass easily develops resistance to herbicides and because of this resistance a concerted effort has begun to find additional management strategies for this weedy pest. Join us to hear more about highly efficacious and cost-effective postemergent control strategies that introduce herbicides with different modes of action.
