Selective Herbicides

  • Multiple applications are necessary with this stubborn weed.

Non-Selective Herbicides

  • Spot treating with non-selective herbicides is very effective and cost-efficient if your goosegrass problem is not very widespread.
  • A variety of different herbicides can be used and to get the best results
  • Multiple applications are necessary
  • Use a fine stream or low-pressure fan spray to avoid contact with other vegetation.
  • Apply when there is a low chance of rain to avoid runoff of chemical to other vegetation.
