Goosegrass


Goosegrass (Eleusine indica). Goosegrass, also called wiregrass, is an annual weed that grows as a compressed plant in turf and reproduces by seed in unhealthy soil. It appears as a silvery mat forming a pale green clump with a low rosette and flattened stems. Flower stalks are short, stout, and compressed. Seed heads are somewhat similar to those of dallisgrass, but short and stiff. Normally found in compacted areas or areas of heavy wear. Produces seed even under close mowing. Very similar to crabgrass. Control with healthy soil and spraying vinegar-based products.
