Prevent annual meadow grass after drought damage!
Weather conditions during the summer months are getting more extreme. The result is very dry soil and poor conditions for grass. A dry and cold autumn simply serves to make the conditions even worse. Annual meadow grass that often starts growing and colonising bare patches in the turf is also killed by drought. Poa annua (annual meadow grass) is an annoying, weak plant, a weed that germinates and flowers at low temperatures. In reaction to drought, the plant experiences stress causing it to form and spread huge numbers of seed heads. The number of seeds produced by Poa annua can quickly amount to hundreds per plant. If no action is taken, the seeds will develop into seedlings and grow. The turf will become very sensitive and ultimately there will be no turf left at all.
