Annual Bluegrass

The white hue of the Poa Annua (Annual Bluegrass) seed head has slowly disappeared and now a yellow/gold appearance of the Annual Bluegrass can be noted on most of the greens.


The yellow color of the Annual Bluegrass currently is caused by the use of a growth regulator that slows the growth of Annual Bluegrass, coupled with increased and timely fertility regimes and cultural strategies to enhance creeping bentgrass, a shift to higher populations of bentgrass will occur. These strategies will not eliminate Annual Bluegrass but will reduce this weed over time, allowing for increased playability and sustainability.
