Grassy weeds in pastures and hayfields compete with desired forage species and reduce productivity of forage systems. Lack of selective herbicides makes grassy weed species, such as Johnsongrass, Japanese stiltgrass, broomsedge, and foxtail species difficult to control. Proper soil fertility, grazing management, and correct timing of herbicide application can effectively control these species.
