Selective broomsedge (Andropogon virginicus L.) control in permanent pastures

Species Referenced: Andropogon virginicus (Broomsedge),
AbstractExamines the effects of herbicide on controlling Andropogon virginicus in pastures containing Paspalum notatum (bahiagrass), Cynodon dactylon (bermudagrass), and P. notatum (dallisgrass) pasture. Although native restoration projects would likely have the opposite objective (establishing A. virginicus in former pasture), the article provides useful information regarding herbicide tolerance of these species. Herbicides evaluated include: bromacil and hexazinone, tebuthiuron, bromacil+ diuron (0 · 5:0 · 5 w/w), and buthidazole.
