Is this prostate knotweed. http://www.flickr.com/photos/99818773@N03/9438397954/

If it is what can be done. I've started aeriating this yr and began the organic program early this spring. This weed is worse this yr than last. Also I have empty lots next door which is full of this weed. If I know when it germinates will corn gluten meal help suppress this weed?

Have you googled prostrate knotweed? It does not look like that at all. What you have, looks more like Johnson grass or another grassy weed.

This isn't Johnson grass. It grows laterally when Johnson grass grows more upright. Not to mention the massive tap root. I pulled 1 up yesterday that had a tap root 13 inches long.
