In this 60-minute presentation, Matt Elmore, Ph.D., Rutgers University, discusses false-green kyllinga management in cool-season turfgrass. False-green kyllinga is a perennial sedge species commonly found on golf course fairways, roughs and sometimes putting greens. You’ll learn about the life cycle, biology, and management options for control. Herbicide programs that integrate various management strategies common in fairways and roughs are examined.
