MORE BERMUDAGRASS IN THE UPPER MIDWEST

August 5, 2013

In the last few weeks, I have published several blogs on the recent invasion of bermudagrass into the Iowa and Nebraska region.  See July 29 for information on identification and June 24 for information on control.

The two pictures below are from Rob Elder of Omaha Organics out of Nebraska.  These are very long bermudagrass stolons, longer than anything that I have seen in Iowa.  If anyone has observed bermuda north of the Ames/Des Moines area, let me know.  I am interested in how far north if is occurring.
