  • Using full herbicide rates
  • Spraying during favorable weather conditions
  • Using good spraying practices.

Controlling annual ryegrass in the spring is best done:

  • When the ryegrass has reached the joint growth stage (stem elongation).

The next post will have more specific guidelines. In the meantime, check out the Annual Ryegrass website for more detailed infomation.
