SPES-350NP One of the most difficult to control weeds in cool season lawns is bermudagrass (Cynodon spp., aka 'wiregrass'). However, there are cultural management programs that will reduce bermudagrass populations and there are now selective chemical control programs that offer greater bermudagrass control possibilities than ever before. This publication details the strategies to reduce bermudagrass contamination of cool-season lawns, emphasizing selective herbicide control programs.
