Weed Control on a First Year Native Warm Season Grass Planting

Annual weeds in a Native Warm Season Grass planting can slow the establishment and potentially choke out small seedlings. Colt Hamilton explains what to look for with a first year stand and if it would be worth the time, effort, and money to take the weeds head on. He also discusses options for weed control, including mowing high with a brush hog and broadleaf herbicides.
