Farm Questions Are Answered
QUESTION: What is centipede
ANSWER: It's a low creep lawn
grass that does well on almost
any kind of soil. Its scientific
name is Eremochloa ophiuroides.
It will grow well in the sun and
does reasonably well in the shade.
Its main claim is that it remains
close to the ground and requires
little mowing. The worst object
ion to it is that it browns over at
the first frost of winter and re
mains so ^untii spring growth
starts. Seed of centipede grass
are now becoming available. If
you can get them seed them in
April. However, the usual prac
tice is to start centipede grass
from roots planted in April and
QUESTION: How can I keep
crabgrass and cockleburs out of
ANSWER: With 2, 4-D you can
control crabgrass, cockleburs,
morning gloi-y pigweed, lambs
quarter and ragweed. Use pre
emergence spray, spraying sur
face of soil five to seven days
after planting or just before corn
emerges. Use IV* pounds of 2,4-D
per acre on sandy soils, 1%
pounds on clay soils and two
pounds on muck soils. Do not
cultivate or disturb the soil until
the corn is 14 inches tall or until
weeds appear. Plant corn at least
one inch deep. Avoid pre-emerg
ence applications on extremely
sandy soils. Injury t? stand may
occur if heavy rains follow the
application before the corn comes
up. Poor weed control is likely
under dry conditions.
