Kentucky bluegrass plants treated with crabgrass herbicides showed reduction of rhizome number and length and number of tillers. Zytron, Dacthal, and Trifluralin produced the greatest reduction at 1½ times the standard rate. Bandane and Chlordane reduced rhizome development only at 1½ times the standard rate. Crab-e-rad reduced the number of tillers and length of rhizomes.
