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

Month: Apr
Year: 1988

Publication Type: Article
Journal: Crop Protection
Volume: 7
Issue: 2
Pages: 80-83

Article Topic(s): Herbicide
Research Setting(s): Grassland
Location: Mississippi

Species Referenced: Andropogon virginicus (Broomsedge),


Examines 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.
