Selectively Reduce Annual Bluegrass Populations with Velocity® SP Herbicide (Canada)
Annual bluegrass (Poa annua), commonly known as Poa, is found on many golf courses and has a number of attributes that make it unappealing to turf managers. There are many ecotypes of annual bluegrass that each grow at different rates and when mixed with creeping bentgrass can contribute to uneven playing surfaces, create management challenges and increase overwintering risks. Transitioning annual bluegrass out of fairways and tees can be a tough task.
Velocity® SP post-emergent herbicide is the best way to convert Poa-infested turf back to creeping bentgrass. With your choice of five conversion programs, Velocity gives golf course superintendents an effective way to make a gradual transition from annual bluegrass infested turf to pure stands of creeping bentgrass, perennial ryegrass, Kentucky bluegrass or tall fescue. In addition, Velocity provides secondary benefits by suppressing dollar spot and controlling other pesky broadleaf weeds.
