How to get rid of reeds in a field. Any suggestions please the land isn t that wet where this grass is but we ve noticed it is getting denser. Rodeo should be applied in early spring when reed canary grass is green and most native wetland species are still dormant. It is in a valley bottom and does have a river running alongside it.
Following a thorough plan of eradication is the best bet when attempting to get rid of this persistent invader. If you have a larger patch of reeds and want to use chemical methods to get rid of them the most common herbicide used is glysophate. The reeds rushes whatever will be the only things tall enough the touch the carpet.
According to label recommendations rodeo a formulation of glyphosate designed for use in wetlands will kill reed canary grass especially young plants when applied to foliage. Phragmites are also the bane of many a waterfront homeowner whose views are blocked by fast spreading tough to eradicate reed communities growing between 12 and 15 feet high.

So the only way to really really get rid of reeds is to eliminate what causes them to grow which means they probably need to be excavated for a really long term control. Only spray this herbicide on a dead calm day.
