Stilt Grass Control

For those of you who have battled with Microstegium vimineum (Japanese Stiltgrass) you know that it can be an uphill battle.  However, the one saving grace about the plant is that it is an annual grass--if you can keep it from setting seed then you can at least keep it from spreading further.  Just remember you have to be diligent because the seed has been viable in the soil for up to 7 years.  We'll keep that depressing fact to ourselves, and just realize that NOW is the time to combat stilt grass.  

Head out with your weed whacker while the flower buds are full--but before it sets seed, and weed whack away!! You will be preventing the seed from further development!! Start your weed whackers and win the stilt grass fight today!!
