Ground ivy is a common broadleaf weed that disrupts turf uniformity and is difficult to control. The objective of this field research was to evaluate cultural and chemical control of ground ivy. Increasing annual nitrogen fertilizer applications from 0 to 196 and 293 kg·ha-1 reduced ground ivy cover by 24% and 32%, respectively. At 26 weeks after treatment, 1.1 kg·ha-1 isoxaben applied in May limited ground ivy spread by 34% compared to the control. Triclopyr, 2,4-D, or fluroxypyr applied at the highest-labeled rate in October provided superior ground ivy control by the following May. Combining an annual fertility program of 196 kg·ha-1 nitrogen and an application of 1.1 kg·ha-1 isoxaben with or after an application of 2,4-D, fluroxypyr, or triclopyr in the fall can maximize ground ivy control. Chemical names used: N-[3-(1-ethyl-1-methylpropyl)-5-isoxazolyl]-2,6-dimethoxybenzamide (isoxaben); [(3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinyl)oxy]acetic acid (triclopyr); (2,4-dichlorophenoxy)acetic acid (2,4-D); [(4-amino-3,5-dichloro-6-fluoro-pyridyl)oxy]acetic acid (fluroxypyr).
