It can be extremely hard to get rid of torpedo grass. Torpedo Grass is a strong fast growing grass with sharp nodes and runners. Unlike other grasses, torpedo grass is not killed or eliminated when you spray or till it. The herbicide only kills the portion of grass that had direct contact, and tilling only chops up the roots and runners into hundreds or thousands of new plants. Torpedo grass is usually introduced to a property during construction or renovation. It is very commonly found in the topsoil and fill construction companies bring in when they are preparing the foundation for construction.
In order to eliminate torpedo grass successfully, an ongoing eradication and management program is necessary. Multiple herbicide treatments can eventually bring your invasion under control. The most common treatment option is to spray the area with herbicide, wait a couple of weeks and reapply.
