There is great variability on the present condition of Poa annua on greens throughout much of the state. In many cases patches of poa are a tan or bronzes color. In these areas often there are some plants with new leaf growth but many plants have no green leaf tissue, white crown tissue and a very weak root system (maybe one or two small white roots). Will these plants recover? Or how many will recover? That is the $64 question.
Some patches of poa are a gray to whitish color and may appear slightly matted. Most of these areas have little new leaf growth and are in very poor condition.
