EXTENSION CONNECTION: Removing cogongrass takes effort

Published: Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 11:41 AM.

For small infestations less than 20-30 feet in diameter, treat the area with glyphosate once in the fall and once in the spring for three years, or until eradicated. 

A more integrated approach may be necessary for larger infestations. Adding a burn or tilling the soil may help in some cases. 

Cogongrass is not easy to eradicate, so it will take a coordinated effort from government agencies and private landowners. 

Jennifer Bearden is an agent at the Okaloosa County Extension office in Crestview.
