Using Cultural Practices and Leaf Mulch to Control Weeds in Established Turfgrass
A. R. Kowalewski, R. N. Calhoun, A. D. Hathaway, and J. N. Rogers III
The objective of this research was to quantify the efficacy of leaf mulch as an organic weed control method when combined with frequent nitrogen fertilizer applications and a mowing height conducive to a cool-season turfgrass mixture. The original hypothesis of this research was that leaf mulch applications, regardless of species, in combination with regular nitrogen fertilizer applications and an increased mowing height, would provide a well integrated turfgrass management system capable of providing long-term dandelion suppression.
