Grass (Agropyron repens)
indicates a crust formation and/or a hardpan in
the soil. Choke it out by sowing millet, soybeans
or cowpeas, making sure that the land first is
thoroughly cultivated and the weather is hot and
dry. Two successive crops of rye also will choke
brine of common salt (sodium Chloride) will kill
it out, too, if used after the grass is freshly
cut and applied in dry weather several times. Dry
weather will wilt the roots of quack grass if
they are brought to the surface. Hand pulling is
recommended if there are but a few plants.
Like so many
other thinks quack grass isnt all bad. It
is good cattle feed, and because of its
persistence it makes a good covering for gullies
and road banks where live soil has been cut open
and few other plants will grow. Though hard to
get rid of once it is started, it does prepare
the soil for better things. Oddly, it is
wheats nearest relative.
