Wild Garlic Control in Warm and Cool-Season Turf

2,4-D amine can be used in cool-season lawns such as tall fescue and perennial ryegrass. Bermudagrass and other warm-season grasses are tolerant as well. Apply 3 qt/A twice at yearly intervals. Wild garlic populations will be greatly reduced but not eliminated after one application. Bulblet reproduction will occur rapidly if a 2nd application is not made.

Manor herbicide also provides some control of wild garlic. Bermudagrass, zoysiagrass, St. Augustinegrass and centipedegrass show tolerance as do cool-season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass and fine fescue. Apply up to 0.5 oz/A and do not exceed this rate for centipedegrass, Kentucky bluegrass and fine fescue.
