Crabgrass Continues to Emerge

Recent rains have stimulated more crabgrass to emerge. This will probably continue through the end of the month. If applied preemergence herbicides, especially early in the spring, you may start to see “breakthrough”. If have decided to control crabgrass postemergence (manually or with postemergence herbicides), you should scout for emerging plants after each rain or irrigation event. Water will stimulate more emergence of plants. See previous post for more information.
