Bermuda Grass

juzjonMarch 17, 2010

Hopefully someone can help me. I have a large Agave cactus in my front yard that is infested with Bermuda Grass. Is there anything that I can apply to kill the grass but not the cactus? Weeding by hand is literally impossible with this cactus. (too many band aids)

Is it possible that you could "wick" glyphosate onto actively growing Bermuda around your agave? Wear rubber gloves and mop the diluted product onto the Bermuda with a saturated rag, being careful not to touch the agave. Some plants actually have a surface cutin that is waxy and prevents penetration by the product and prevents damage, but I am not sure if agave is one. Get the Bermuda as close as you can without touching it.
