The Turfgrass Weed Control Database contains the same information and pictures included in the Miscellaneous Publication MP-521. The weeds are arranged alphabetically by scientific name because common names vary and thus be inaccurate.
Doveweed, Murdannia nudiflora
Murdannia nudiflora
Products containing atrazine or simazine, Revolver or metsulfuron applied twice 30 days apart provide partial control. Tank mixes of MSMA with Sencor or multiple applications of two or three-way broadleaf herbicide mixtures also provide good control but also may cause injury to some turfgrass species. Tank mixing Quicksilver (carfentrazone) or Dismiss (sulfentrazone) with these products increase and hasten their activity. Repeat applications of all herbicides or combinations will be needed for complete control.
