Is anyone aware of Doveweed and the control problems associated with it??
If so, advise what you use to control it best. Nothing in my arsenal seems to work.
Thanks

Thanks bug-guy. I couldn't remember whether I heard atrazine or simazine would control it. I really hate to spray atrazine on bermuda at this time of year. This weed has just shown up in this area in the last couple of years. I had one lawn out of hundreds that I service that had a problem with it last year. As of today, I have 2. I'd like to "nip it in the bud". Thanks again.

Dont use Princep now or Atrazine..........unless the lawns are heavily fertilized and watered. You may be replacing some muda or zoysia.

Thanks Think Green. Looks like 3-way spiked with dismiss offers excellent control by their standards.

Revolver also works very well on Doveweed. Just make sure you use a MSO with it.
