Creeping wheatgrass is a real enemy of gardeners and gardeners.
This plant has a powerful root system that goes deep into the ground.
If this weed is not completely eradicated, the grasshopper can grow even from a small root.
We get rid of wheatgrass with the help of chemical preparations
In the fight against this weed are effective herbicidesContinuous action. For this purpose it is better to use glyphate-containing agents, for example, "Glyphos", "Hurricane Forte", "Tornado", "Glyphosate", etc. The most favorable time for using a chemical is the period, beginning with the weeding of the weed and ending with its earing.
Propagated by grass seed and rhizome.
After applying the drug you have chosen,Leaves or shoots of wheatgrass is absorbed by this plant for 4-5 hours. After 5-7 days the chemical reaches the root system and spreads to other parts of the plant, as a result of which the synthesis of amino acids is broken and the wheat grass begins to die. Usually, in order to completely destroy the weed, it will take 2 to 3 weeks.
Entered into the soil chemical preparation quickly loses its activity, and after a while it decomposes into natural components. Although it is not recommended to use herbicides more than once in 2-3 years.
Effective folk methods to combat stamping
Digging the soil, it is recommended to carefully chooseAll the roots are limp, not leaving even the smallest pieces. For greater efficiency, the allotment of land should be divided into several sections (this will facilitate the process of combating the wheatgrass). Each such zone is thoroughly processed, and its boundaries are sprinkled with 6% table vinegar. This procedure is recommended to be performed twice a year: in the early spring and autumn, after harvest (this is very effective, next spring this weed will not make itself felt).
To reduce the viability of the remainingSoil rootlets, on the dug site, it is recommended to plant zucchini, oats, corn, buckwheat, alfalfa or peas. In this case, the norm of sowing should be increased by 10% - 15%. The root system of these plants will not allow the weed to grow, so the grass will die very soon.
Dahlias have a similar effect.
Cardboard will help to get rid of weed. In the early spring, the area where the wheatgrass "settled" is covered with cardboard, a small layer of earth (7-10 cm) is piled on top and planted with plants with a small root system, for example, it may be dill or other greens. The roots of wheat grass due to shortage of light will rot, which means that the weed will die.
Another effective way - to trim greenCoppice with Fokine plane cutters (thus it is impossible to damage the root system of the plant). This procedure should be done every 5-6 days: without getting food, the roots will begin to deform and the plant will die.
