Practical Weed Science for the Field Scout: Corn and Soybean

Foxtail, Carolina (Alopecurus carolinianus)

Winter annual grass

Carolina foxtailCarolina foxtail
Carolina foxtail

A winter annual grass that grows in fallow fields, pastures and some agronomic crops and especially favors wet areas in these locations. Carolina foxtail will produce seed in the spring and die back by early summer. This plant has a small "fox's tail" seedhead similar to that of timothy grass. This weed only grows to a total height of 4 to 6 inches. The leaves are without auricles and have membranous ligules that are 2 to 3 mm long. Leaves are 1 to 5 mm wide, 2 to 5 inches long. This foxtail is not related to the common summer annual foxtails like giant, green or yellow foxtail.
