Article Topic(s): Herbicide
Research Setting(s): Greenhouse
Species Referenced: Sorghastrum nutans (Indiangrass),
AbstractEvaluates the use of early spring applications of herbicides for weed control and phytotoxicity to Panicum coloratum during establishment. Includes an evaluation of herbicides on several other species of grasses, including cultivars of Sorghastrum nutans and Panicum virgatum. Most grasses tolerated butylate, MSMA, 2,4-D, chlorsulfuron, and metsulfuron but bensulide and siduron were highly injurious to most grasses.
