Pasture Weed Control Database

The Pasture Weed Control Database contains the same information and pictures included in the Miscellaneous Publication MP-522. The weeds are arranged alphabetically by scientific name because common names vary. For example, in Arkansas, Eupatorium capillifolium, is variously called, Dogfennel, Cypress Weed, and Texas Cedar.

Ryegrass, Lolium
Glyphosate must be applied in January or February while the ryegrass is small to achieve effective control in dormant bermudagrass. A good rule of thumb is waiting for the high to reach 50 degrees three days in a row. Glyphosate works very slowly in cold weather. Delaying application into March and April results in big ryegrass that is very difficult to control regardless of the rate applied. In two years of testing at six locations, we have gotten excellent ryegrass control with glyphosate at 1 lb/ai/A applied in January or February. Another important factor in ryegrass control is adequate spray coverage. Our research herbicides are applied with a boom sprayer at 15 gal/A using 8002 flat fan nozzles on 20-inch spacing.
