Use either Specticle or Ronstar for preemergence control of goosegrass. Barricade and Pendulum will provide slightly less effective preemergence control. Postemergence herbicides for goosegrass include Revolver, Illoxan, Dismiss and Sencor. Repeat applications are needed when controlling goosegrass postemergence. Pylex (topramezone) is effective on goosegrass in centipedegrass and certain cool-season grasses.
