Tools of Crabgrass Hater Are Legion; None Work InblASAi'uUb -- This is (he season over much of the United Stales when crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis) takes over lawns and waves its spiky seed liivdi contemptuously at eradication at- Icinpis. It can be eliminated. There arc 1-uisons which will kill il if applied often enough, thoroughly enough, and in a vacuum where no seed hops over from the neighbors' untreated yard. Crabgrass also can be controlled by shooting off the decumbent rooted-iit-every-nodc stems with broadheaded arrows, by d y n a m i t - ing, or paving the yard with asphalt. Imposing Credentials After f i g h t i n g a 10-vcar losing battle with this crab-legged weed, 1 sal down last week and applied lo Ihe problem the full power of B brain that invented the unlosablc golf ball (il emils puffs of smoke). Now, lliere undoublcdly are people who are color blind, monotones or malhcmnliciil morons. Bui every man is a polcnlial inventor. Il's just a mallei- of organization -- deciding exactly what needs inventing. In this case, a natural enemy of crabgrass obviously was needed. There arc Ihiek-growing lawn Brasses which will choke il oul hul Ihcy're expensive and a long-lime cifre. Takes work lo establish, too. Flooding? Won't work..Crabgrass thrives so well on heavy walering lhat it's called walcrgrass in some localities. , Dehydration? r Crabgrass sometimes is the only greenery on a drought-hit golf couVsc or pasture. Well, doesn't anything ever put crabgrass oul of business? Weakness Revealed Yes! "Crabgrass gets a lale slarl evsry .spring -- behind bluegrass and olher uerrenial herbage -- and it vanishes every fall after seeding the ground thoroughly for, next year's crop. s And why docs it live its life cycle In Ihe hot months? Because it can't Gland freezing, Here you have followed the authentic golden thread of invention. The next slop was obvious. ·I made a box with a flooring of coarse wire netting and a light cover. I filled Ihc box with dry ice and dragged it slowly over my acreage of crabgrass. In the true scientific mclhod, I let the box set In some spots for S seconds, in others for 10, 20 and 30 seconds. Every crabgrass leaf sparkled wilh frost.
