So have you seen that purple topped grass growing in the ditches, in pastures, along fields and in waterways recently? This grass is called just what it looks like, “Purpletop”. Another name for this grass is greasegrass. This year I have just seen some of it showing up in pastures and along roads. When we had the drought in 2012, it didn’t show up much. If you are concerned about it being a problem weedy grass, it shouldn’t be a problem. It has shown up this time of year the past few years, especially when we get some good rains during the summer.
Late summer, fall and harvest are good times to check out where you may have a problem with specific weeds or where a new weed is invading or possibly even herbicide resistance is developing. By identifying the weed, extent of any infestations and locations of weed problems, you will have a better strategy for managing these weeds in the future, maybe even this fall. Marestail or maybe more specifically, glyphosate resistant marestail has become a major problem in Nebraska. In traveling around southeast Nebraska, marestail control and weed control in general appears to be much better overall this summer compared to previous years.
