Paspalum dilatatum

What is Paspalum?

A tough perennial grass growing out from a central base or crown that is very difficult to pull out by hand when mature. Leaves are bluey-green and the seed spikes are usually seen in late summer. Where individual plants can be treated, this persistent weed can be eliminated with Zero. Paspalum in lawns can be removed by cutting off the clump at ground level with a sharp knife or hoe. Alternatively, apply Zero with a Zero Weed Brush.

Zero contains glyphosate, a non-selective herbicide which is ideal to control paspalum. The chemical is translocated from the above ground parts of the plant to the persistent root system. There is no residual action of glyphosate when it contacts the soil.
