Johnson grass in lawn

farmerbell(6b TN)June 22, 2006

We have some patches of johnson grass in our lawn. It is slowly spreading. Is there a way to selectively kill the johnson grass while not killing the fescue?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Dear Farmerbell

Thank you very much for the inquiry. Johnsongrass as you know can be very persistent. One product that has shown some activity is Acclaim. Another possibility is Drive. Finally, Johnsongrass does not like frequent, persistent mowing. Make sure you are following good mowing guidelines to improve your chances.

Again thanks for the inquiry.
