Studies the effects of glyphosate on Pontederia cordata. Glyphosate is used to control the invasive Panicum repens but can have negative effects on co-occurring native species. The highest rate of glyphosate effectively controlled P. repens when applied to cut stubble. Pontederia cordata was unaffected by the highest rate of glyphosate. Results indicate that a cut-and-spray application of a 1.5% solution of glyphosate may control P. repens with having a major effect on P. cordata.
