Large Crabgrass Weed Killer

Digitaria sanguinalis Herbicide

Description of Crabgrass, Large (Digitaria sanguinalis):
Large crabgrass is just another variety of crabgrass--so all herbicides that work on crabgrass will work here. It can be identified by being light-green and having zig-zagging stems that spread on the surface of the soil. It dies in the winter and comes back in the spring via the seeds it dropped during the prior year. If left alone and not mowed, large crabgrass can grow between 2 to 2.5 feet tall.
According to the manufacturer approved labels: The following 12 weed killers, applied at the listed application rates, will control Large Crabgrass.

Instructions:
Under certain conditions, Drive XLR8 application to annual grasses at 2-tiller and 4-tiller may not provide complete control. A sequential application will be required for grass control in these situations. Optimum control is achieved when applications of Drive XLR8 + methylated seed oil are applied either before second tiller or as grass weeds mature.

Biotypes of large and smooth crabgrass in California have shown varied response to Drive XLR8. If control failure occurs following a full or split application, DO NOT reapply Drive XLR8. Change to a herbicide with a different mode of action.
