Weed Identification

Turfgrass Weed Control Database

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.

Goosegrass, Eleusine indica
Eleusine indica
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.
