Type of Weed: Grassy Weed
Dallisgrass is a troublesome perennial grassy weed that primarily occurs in the southern United States. This weed prefers to grow in developed, wet environments.
This weed is very difficult to control due to its aggressive reproductive methods that include spreading seeds, growing from rhizomes (part of the roots system), and growing using creeping stems (known as stolons).
How to Identify
Due to restrictions on the use of some herbicides, the post-emergent products labeled for use on dallisgrass can only be applied on golf courses, sod farms, and right of way locations.
As a result, companies are unable to treat dallisgrass with post-emergent herbicides in the excluded residential and commercial sites. The best way to rid your property of dallisgrass is through preventative pre-emergent herbicide treatments.
