Spraying New Native Grass During Late May
Filed under: Ask Grant, Herbicide
I frost seeded some Cave In Rock in February. I finally got around to spraying Glyphosate on Sunday the 23rd of May. Do you think the grass had already started to germinate? There were some weeds and grasses growing, but it is a pretty clean field since I kept it sprayed last summer. I live in Lewis County, Kentucky right along the Ohio River.
I’d be a bit anxious about spraying Glyphosate during late May on plots where native grass seed has had a chance to germinate. Young native grasses are difficult to identify. Glyphosate is ground neutral, so any seeds that hadn’t germinated will be fine. Given it was a cool spring in Kentucky it may be fine. I hope you let me know for future reference.
