Annual/Woolly Croton

Post date: Jan 9, 2013 2:24:40 PM

Woolly Croton, commonly known as dove weed has been a huge weed problem this year across the Cross Timbers area of Texas. This weed is typically not a problem unless we have a drought and competition from other forages is less. This weed can produce a deep root system searching for moisture and the stems can get so woody and hard that it is hard to shred. Most of the broadleaf weed control products will work if applied early in the spring when the weed germinates. By the stage we see in the picture control is not possible.
